Righardt's journey in the software industry kicked off with humble beginnings in 2015. His collective experience spans across multiple disciplines that form a core part of the typical Software Development Life Cycle.
Since initially joining his first tech startup, focused on payments/digital banking as a UX/UI Designer, he soon worked his way through to filling the role of Scrum Master for the creative team. In the beginning of 2018 he was exposed to the world of business analysis, which was for a property development project, followed by heading up test-coordination efforts prior to the release of the Kulula.com native mobile booking app in 2019.
There came a natural pivot in his career, where he realized his passion for working with client- business- and various other stakeholders involved in software initiatives to solve real-world problems. Conclusively, he became the Product Owner on his first project, while regularly wearing his creative, analytical and coordination hats interchangeably.
