Rudi Coetzee
Software Specialist at MiTek Industries South Africa
Johannesburg Area, South Africa | Computer Software

My name is Rudi and I am an individual that strives for excellence.

I am an employee at MiTek Industries South Africa, where I am a Software Specialist. My general responsibilities include Supporting the MiTek Software Suite as well as driving Development of the MiTek Software Suite.

I am currently studying towards a BSc Informatics at the University of South Africa.

I believe that striving for excellence is a continual process whereby one should adapt and evolve to stay ahead in the game. Some would criticize me for using the word game, but ultimately, if you do not enjoy what you do, you will not be good at it.

Carpe diem - Seize the day, it is an opportunity to be great!
