Sinisa

Project Manager

Sinisa has been around JomSocial since its beginning, but only joined the team in early 2011. Since then, he has been doing what he enjoys most: offering help and generously sharing his in-depth JomSocial and Joomla knowledge. For anyone struggling to set up or configure a site, Sinisa is the first stop. While he’s away from the keyboard, he annoys his neighbors by playing loud music and misplaces weekends with nightlife and parties.

Eric

Project Manager

Eric has been active with Joomla since 2010 and joined JomSocial in January 2012 where his patience teaching English has proved invaluable for customer service. Thanks to Merav he's learned a lot and worked his way up from support to Project Management. Not afraid of Scrum and does not know the meaning of 'giving up'. He’s a keen cook and, as a science fiction fan, is easily distracted by lasers.

Paul

Support Manager

Paul has over 25 years’ experience in operations management and support, including 10 years working directly with web services. He thrives on challenging situations and won’t stop until everyone is happy. When Paul isn’t working he is normally found in front of his computer still working. Either way, if you have a problem Paul will be there to sort it out for you and he'll do it with the biggest smile you've ever seen.

Neil

Senior Developer

Neil studied Information Technology at Multimedia University where he majored in data communication. He’s been working for JomSocial since December 2010, indulging a massive interest in programming with OpenSource. He’s a keen soccer player and the kind of guy you’d pick first for your Halo team..

Doesn't like to be bothered when he's working, focus is everything. For him the pyramid of basic human needs starts with wifi at the bottom, air is secondary.

Michael

Support 

Sociologist, so no wonder that he's working on Internet societies development with JomSocial. Like problems, especially those I can solve :) They are like riddles and playing with them all day long he sometimes wonders when how much time it takes him to start talking to people with riddles. Loves to spend free time on the bosom of mother nature, swimming in river channels, traversing the swamps just to rest in his sweet home afterwards. Reading books, listening to the music and watching films gives him pleasure too. On occasion he wears a uniform and clashes in the I and the II World War battles reenactments. That's real historical fun!

In his spare time he listens to accoustic music, plays basketball and watches some good movies. That is when he's not hanging out with his friends :)
