I love working at Zendesk

I've been working for Zendesk since late 2015 and I love it. The work is challenging and creative, people are respectful and all-round amazing.

When I was providing IT consulting services, this website was an effective tool to show potential clients what they were signing up for. I haven't updated it since joining Zendesk: I actually enjoy revisiting the snapshot in time it represents.

I don't come here very often...

What others say about me

  • I worked with Steven during his role has a review co-ordinator for ÆKOS in TERN, I was very impressed with his attention to detail and his ability to deal with people from diverse skill sets and views. He worked on a strict deadline without compromising on the quality. It was wonderful working with Steven.

  • I've worked with Steven through his software development for ANU E Press. He is always ready to answer questions about process, design, and implementation, and he never fails to respond quickly and with detailed explanations. As a consultant, he is responsive and communicative, reliable and produces great results -- an obvious indicator of someone who knows their stuff!

  • Steven is a highly knowledgeable and gifted thinker and developer in the area of software, networks, and matters digital. He is highly organised, professional and responsive, with a seemingly innate desire to create, fix, and help, all of which he does with a disarming sense of humour. He takes on jobs for the right reasons and completes them efficiently. I have employed Steven on a number of projects for Monash University Publishing and would not hesitate to work with him again.
