Stefan Cassar, B.Sc. IT (Hons) (Melit.) Software Development - Front End Developer
Having recently joined the Booking & Co. team, Stefan is an enthusiastic and determined Front End Developer. Despite his young age, Stefan is a perfectionist with an eye for detail - making him perfect for the job. Also if push comes to shove, Stefan does not mind doing the extra mile. In fact, before joining the Booking & Co. team, Stefan made sure to brush up on some frameworks to be ready for work.
Apart from having a personal interest in any IT related technology and gadgets, Stefan is also passionate about photography and videography.
Charles Camilleri, B.Sc. (Hons) Software Development - Back End Developer
Charles is one of the latest additions to the Booking & Co. team. Armed with a degree in Software Development, Charles started his career with a company through which he was lucky enough to to have a working experience abroad. With his character Charles has not only managed to integrate with the team straight away, but he has also brought a fresh perspective when it comes to back end development with a yearning to learn more. Even though he might come across as a shy guy, do not be fooled by the exterior!
When not at work, Charles can be found dedicating time to his two passions - working out at the gym and riding his motorcycle.
Andrea Sant - B.Sc. ICT (Hons) Computing and Business - Back End Developer
Andrea is one of the latest developers to join the Back End team. Armed with an analytical and logical perspective, Andrea has quickly made himself quite an indispensable part of the team. No task is big for him and with his knowledge, he will surely give his 100% to attack the issue in the best way posible. One can easily say that Andrea lives and breathes for his work. In fact, it is not the first time that after a weekend he arrives at work ready to attack a problem after spending the days researching on how to solve the issue.
Having said that, everyone needs a breather and to relax Andrea likes to catch up on some movie and TV serieses.
Jeremy Borg - B.Sc. I.T. (Hons) - Web Developer
Jeremy is one of those developers who grew with the Booking & Co. team. Having started with us while he was still a student at the University of Malta, Jeremy worked a few summers with the development team. Once he succesfully finalised his studies and graduated with a B.SC. I.T. (Hons), Jeremy joined our team on a full-time basis. As a developer, he brings with him an analytical approach to our environment of work. No task is small for him, which helped him establish himself as a key member of the team straight away. Being in a music band, Jeremy is quite the musical person.
Legend has it that during his working days at the office he indulges himself in some air drumming.
Robert Loporto, B.Sc. (Hons) - Software Engineer
When it comes to work Robert, who is the in-house veteran developer, he primarily focuses on the development of web applications and user interfaces. Holding a Bsc. Hons. in Computer Science, Robert is armed with years of experience in our industry. With vast knowledge on our products, Robert is a highly valued team member of Booking & Co. During his free time Robert does not sit idle – in fact he is a basketball player in the Maltese 2nd Division league with the Mellieha Tritones.
Legend holds that Robert is quite the expert on food. If someone needs any advice on the best restaurants, Robert is your man.
Andrew Gambin, B.Sc. (Hons) - Development Team Leader
Andrew with a B.Sc. (Hons) degree brings a somewhat distinguished approach to web development. With an energetic attitude, Andrew always attacks the days with a 'let's do it' approach mixed with a hint of humour - a characteristic which is valued with his colleagues especially on rainy days. Andrew is quite the health freak of the company, who always bashes his colleagues for ordering take-away food.
Legend says that Andrew has the concentration of a Buddhist monk while working - it is not the first time he misses whole conversations taking place in the office and then raising the same subject five minutes after the discussion finished.
Vanessa Borg, M.A. Creativity & Innovation - Business Development Director
Vanessa, who has been working with Booking & Co. since 2006, started out as a part-timer while reading a degree in B. Comm. which she completed successfully in 2007. Nowadays she is an important part of the team who not only manages the websites development division of the company, but who also is the main point of contact to the clients. Vanessa is passionate about travelling and if not found behind her desk most probably is in some remote part of the world.
Legend has it that Vanessa holds an official role within Booking & Co. – that of unofficial mum to all of the developers, reminding them what to do, not to do and when they have applied for their leave days.
Clifton Dingli Bennetti - Executive Director
Clifton, the Executive Director of the company, can be found running from one office to the other dealing with various aspects of the company. From business development to project consultation, Clifton is the man for the job. Armed with a strong business perspective and a strong analytical point of view, Clifton makes sure that the whole Booking & Co. team is on-board with the vision of the whole company, thus ensuring that the cohesive nature between the members is always there.
Legend has it that Clifton is a huge fan of arcade games, with the ultimate dream of his being that of building an arcade game of his own.
