Tech Essence

Meet Us

At Tech Essence we work together to achieve better.

Recognition for participation is at the forefront of everything we do. Everyone in the current team joined us from completely diverse backgrounds, and each team member holds unique experiences and skill sets. This collectively moulded the once small time start up company, into a rapidly growing, forward thinking and dynamic place to work.

We grew organically from 2 team members in July 2014, to 10 team members by May 2016. It's safe to say we've been eating our vegetables...

Stefan Benzinski

Stefan Benzinski

Software Engineer

Stefan is a dedicated in-house developer for Tech Essence, responsible for implementing a variety of front-end and back-end features. Many people suspect that he was either born a century too late or a century too early, though he manages to cope with this inconvenience. His hobbies include feeding geese, thinking about fish and saying very little using as many words as possible. He dislikes embarrassment but is doomed to live under its shadow.

Natalie Konschu

Natalie Konschu

Legal Counsel

Natalie provides legal counsel to the Tech Essence team. Stylish but unconventional, Natalie is most comfortable wearing designer labels despite preferring to sit on an exercise ball rather than a desk chair. She holds considerable expertise in equity analysis, technical compliance and eating cheese in the workplace. Her knowledge of corporate law is matched only by the size of her shoe collection. It is feared that she will never complete the latter.

Delano is Tech Essence’s Financial Controller. The very model of a cool and composed accountant, Delano is known for his level-headedness and equally level figures. His very presence is said to create an aura of calm. The secret to his inner tranquillity is known to only three individuals, who are sworn to silence on the matter.
