We welcome a new IT Developer, Junior Industrial Engineer, RF Engineering Technician and HR Business Partner to the Poynting Group. We look forward to getting to know you all better.
IT Developer of FibrePoynt
During these past few years of Network engineering experience, I have been involved in building many Major high-level networks, which have played a key part in building my knowledge in the networking industry.
As a result of this I have formed an understanding for how each network is built the right way and learning each specific detail of networking and its elements.
I am extremely excited and passionate to be a part of Poynting as this is a brand-new opportunity for me and everything, I see being done around is furthering the technology scales of not only South Africa but the World.
Other than engineering I love spending most of my days fishing and outdoors as much as possible which refreshes me for the grind of the next day of work!
I believe that thinking ahead is being ahead and I always say people should try out an idea whether it is the least possible or feasible we will work it out and make it work.
I have only been here for a while now, but I love the team, I see us achieving many greater things together and I look forward to a bigger brighter future for Poynting and myself.
Junior Industrial Engineer
Hi, my name is Rendani Phalandwa. I am a newly appointed Junior Industrial engineer in the Industrialization department for Poynting Antennas, I was born and bred in the dusty streets of Thohoyandou.
I studied Mechanical Engineering at the Central University of Technology and started my career as mechanical technician trainee. Where the genesis for continuous improvement, designing production processes that maximize efficiency and reduce waste became my everyday life. With this exciting challenging opportunity, it provides me a chance to implement skills and experience I possess to the next level but most importantly it will be an opportunity to learn from the rest of Poynting community and grow with the company.
During my spare time I enjoy reading books, my current read is a Judicial Memoir by Dikgang Moseneke. Through reading that is where my mind travel to places I have never been, and it really help me to challenge my intellectual equilibrium and see the world in different perspectives.
I’m looking forward to playing my role in solidifying Poynting place in the global community.
