Your Friendly Hosts

Seriously, you should go to one of Paul’s parties: He’s super friendly.

Paul Reinheimer

Founder

@preinheimer

Paul has been using computers since his mom sat him in front of a Commodore 64 with a 'Learn to Program' textbook. He's taught PHP, dabbled in Ruby, written a book, and started WonderProxy. His days are occupied trying to talk about "Strategic Vision" with a straight face and building WonderProxy's team and products.

Will Roberts

Founder

@ironwill42

Will has been fixing computers ever since his family first bought one; breaking things is always the best way to learn! He focuses on maintaining WonderNetwork’s collection of servers and dealing with support in different languages of course! You should ask him why Paul isn’t allowed to buy servers anymore. Will enjoys reading, running, and skiing.

Allison Moore

Technical Writer
& Office Manager

@schmalliso

As awesome as she is modest, Allison manages WonderNetwork’s books, maintains customer relationships, codes, and writes copy. A bonafide Master of Information (University of Toronto, 2013), Allison is an information architecture-obsessed technical writer at MongoDB, and spends her evenings blogging & knitting up a storm.

Gemma Anible

Software Engineer

@ellotheth

Gemma is a software engineer, video gamer and recovering classical violinist who has been developing PHP web applications since before PHP5 (and applications in C, .NET and Delphi since before then). She and her husband live with their two dogs in Norway, where they bike around the fjords for fun.

Caroline Shaw

Software Engineer

@carp_oline

Caroline first ventured into the world of HTML & CSS in the era of dial-up, ICQ and Napster. Since then she's embarked on a mission to expand her coding skillz, while dabbling in UI design, SEO and UX. Outside of work you'll find her cycling around Toronto, sipping cocktails and plotting the new matriarchy.

Ellen Hauser

Accounts Payable

Ellen is a musician, legal scholar, and pinball aficionado. She enjoys organizing and filing things, which makes her a great accounts payable human. When not running her own business and keeping our servers running, Ellen enjoys knitting, pinball, pygmy goats, and cuddling her son Max.

Mari Vihuri

Support & Accounts Receivable

@marvellings

Mari is a librarian with lots of feelings about user experience and service design. She likes taking on new projects to learn new things, whether that means building province-wide library services or annotating Hamilton lyrics on Genius. Mari spends her downtime in Toronto relearning Estonian, teaching her cat new tricks, and playing board games (badly).

The Fashionably Helpful

As a growing operation WonderNetwork frequently leans on friends and colleagues for assistance in various ways — if web development was a party, these would be the people who show up early with extra ice and stay late to help with the dishes!

  • Tom Riley @tomdriley

    Honoured to cameo at WonderNetwork, Tom helped to make real all of the cool ideas for the WonderProxy Switcher browser extension. He likes anything JavaScript-y and working on software that people enjoy using. He plays a recurring character at 3rdwavemedia.com where Mrs. Riley is building a UX empire.

  • Bedrich Rios @bedrich

    As talented as he is busy, Bedrich developed the look and feel for the Where’s it Up site (which then grew to be the look for WonderNetwork itself), as well as providing a quick hand on various small projects. Bedrich is kept quite busy being a Fictive Kinsfolk.

  • Avery James Brooks @averybrooks

    As fast a developer as he is skilled, Avery has been instrumental in making the various WonderNetwork pages have a cohesive look and feel, and making Paul and Will look good. When not busy working as a Senior Developer for Radical Media in New York City or doing freelance work, Avery writes and plays music. He has fantastic hair, is surprisingly unfindable on the internets, and shares his name with the actor who played Captain Benjamin Sisko in Star Trek DS9. Check out his awesomely mysterious website at averyjamesbrooks.com, and follow his tweets at @averybrooks.

  • Andrei Zmievski @a

    As efficient as he is wise, Andrei stepped in to help us get Natural Load Testing ready for its Brooklyn Beta launch in October 2011. Andrei lives in San Francisco, where he’s working on a cool new project at AppDynamics and enjoys everything Bay Area has to offer.

  • Richard Orelup @ripsup

    As gifted as he is helpful, Richard wrote the bulk of the initial javascript that made Natural Load Testing possible, saving Paul hours and hours of pacing and hair-pulling and grumpiness. By day, Richard is an Application Developer at Valparaiso University in Indiana. His Facebook profile pic indicates that he has an adorable cat.
