About Us

Erik van Helvoort, Director, Business Development (M.Sc. in information systems)
Erik is responsible for most of the interaction with customers during the initial solution design, but is also a prolific software engineer. Erik made career in Infologic from programmer in 1996 to operations manager in 2002. Erik composes most of our proposals and is the one with the most developed accounting skills, but he really prefers to write software. When Erik is not working, he plays noise on a guitar and runs marathons.

Rob Kramer, Director, Software Development (M.Sc. in computer science)
Rob is the software monkey guru of Solution Space, and in charge of design and development of most of the sol-core; he is the research and development center of the organization. He regularly gets into arguments over code style, naming conventions, correct interpunction and other life-and-death issues. He ensures that the quality of our products remains unrivaled and that we use the latest stable technologies, methods and tools available in the industry. In his free time, Rob restores mechanical watches.

Pek Boon Ang, Director, Project Development (B.Sc. in computer science)
Pek Boon manages projects, maintains most of our site installations, and somehow she still finds time to develop lots of software. Pek Boon makes sure that customers stay happy and that all software is developed timely, tested well and that it works in the way that it was intended. When Pek Boon is not at a customer’s site, and she is not coding, you may find her in a remote place, with a camera.

George Brautigam, Semi-permanent freelance software engineer (M.Sc. in mathemetics)
We worked with George while still at Infologic. He happily took off the management hat a long time ago and now he thoroughly enjoys working with us, as he likes learning about the latest development methods and tools. George lives in comparatively tranquil Perth, Australia, where you can also spot him racing his bicycle.

Anton Appelberg, Freelance software engineer (M.Sc. in engineering physics)
Anton is a wizard when it comes to trading algorithms and strategies. He is one of the few people in the world able to communicate with both the trader and the software team. Anton lives in Melbourne and draws a crowd when he dances the Lindy Hop.

Benson Lim, Freelance software engineer (B.Sc. in software engineering)
Benson lives in Melbourne and is originally a Java and C++ engineer, but nowadays he prefers to develop using the latest Internet technologies. He helped design most of this website. In his spare time, Benson plays bass and runs marathons with Erik.

Positions at Solution Space

All of us are engineers. It is something of a mindset; a desire rather than an obligation. Perhaps you are like us and you are contemplating joining us in this rather remarkable company. You live in Singapore, with specific experience in C++, C# and Python. You have your opinions about which favorite Linux distribution is best (or about the superiority of emacs versus vi), but you are not a script kiddie. You have probably experienced difficulty in trying to explain to managers that open-source implies free as in ‘freedom’, and not free as in ‘free lunch’ or free as in ‘malware’. If this applies to you, then consider dropping us a line.
