First-class problem solver

Working in a family-centric environment with friendships between colleagues is what motivates FarSoft’s Reginald van Niekerk to ever-greater heights developing software. “The atmosphere at FarSoft certainly is a huge plus – making it one of the best companies I’ve worked for,” he commented.

The information technology bug bit when Reggie was in primary school and after matriculating, he was quick to enroll for the national diploma in IT at what was then the Peninsula Technikon. After a spell at Pepkor, he rapidly rose through the ranks at agriculture-focused software companies such as Agrisolve, Paltrack and RBR. So, big was his delight when he landed the job at FarSoft in 2017.

Married with two daughters in high school, Reggie’s pleasures after hours extends to his big love. Which is why you’ll find him happily playing the latest computer games after a busy day programming. However, he also admits to being an ardent armchair sports fan.
