Employee Spotlight: Luke Faizal

There are evenings in the Zoomph office when you might get lucky enough to hear a faint guitar coming from the developers’ nook. And upon following the music, you may discover the musician to be Luke. In a way, this is illustrative of how Luke bears a medley of talents that we tend to unearth over time or by chance because of his naturally humble and unassuming personality. It is with even greater fortune that our team met Luke, and can now call him a great colleague, teammate, and friend.
