Chris Tapper

Co-Founder

LinkedIn

Chris began his career working in two seemingly disparate areas: In academia at the Australian National University, as a full-stack software developer, focusing on photovoltaics and renewables, and in private enterprise, as an electronics engineer, focusing on building complex systems. Developing a particular love for the former - both the software and environmental sides - Chris then moved to Vienna, Austria, to work for a prestigious environmental start-up. This then led to jobs working with passionate teams all over the world in music, healthcare, energy, and fitness start-ups. He has a particular love for Python, back-end development, and helping start-ups to scale-up, maximize efficiency, and maximize their likelihood of success.
