Australian personal budgeting provider MyBudget has appointed experienced US fintech executive Jason Dell to the position of chief technology officer.

Dell, who has qualifications from MIT Sloan School of Management, joins the Adelaide-based company as it embarks on a new technology and data-driven customer engagement strategy.

He joins MyBudget from small business lender Kabbage, located in Atlanta Georgia, where he was responsible for a number of product and customer-driven innovations.

MyBudget founder Tammy Barton said the company had worked hard to secure a CTO with international experience and the capability to build new customer-focused platforms and systems.

“We want to attract the very best talent in the IT industry, the top 1%, and to do that we need to have a leader that is internationally-recognised. We want to build a team around Jason that has the skills to take us to the next level and help us achieve our mission of improving the financial health of Australians.

“Like all business, technology will play an increasingly important role in our customer journey and Jason has the experience to ensure we remain at the forefront of the industry for many years to come.”

Dell said the role with MyBudget would provide a range of “exciting opportunities and challenges”.

“MyBudget is an exciting business on the cusp of a major expansion, helping to build the infrastructure and interfaces that underpin that growth was an opportunity I couldn’t resist.

“Our clients are increasingly adopting and utilising new technologies and we need to make sure we have a digital offering that is able to meet them when and where they want to engage with us.

“Existing and emerging fintech provides us with an incredible opportunity to not only improve the customer engagement process but use data gathered to refine and develop our services to ensure we remain true to our mission of helping people live the life they want free from money worries.”

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
