    Ash is definitely one of the best engineers I've worked with in my 15+ product years. Not only is he highly skilled, but his attitude is towards his growth, team and the end goal is always positive.

  • Enricko Smith

    The most reliable, dedicated, and eternally upbeat engineer I've had the pleasure working with. His ability to find solutions to complex problems has brought immense value to our team. Ashley also multitasks effectively and is able to handle a high-volume workload all while still finding the capacity to lead our mentor-ship programme. His outstanding level of coding, professionalism, and follow-through would provide a great advantage to any team.

    Ashley is an expert developer who isn't afraid to take on a challenge. He is someone you can trust to get the job done and his good character makes him a great team leader. I learnt a lot from him and found him to be an even harder worker than I am!
