Platform Developer: Rudi Benkovič
Rudi has to think too much about the most hidden parts of the MagCloud system, especially those that grind thru the widest array of malformed PDF files. Odd programming challenges are dealt with in a pinch, as long as the work week's day contains the letter R. Don't tease him on any of the other days, as he keeps a big collection of medieval swords and bows.

When Lauren, our PR and Marketing guru, is not designing our advertisements and collateral, she’s planning our events and tradeshows and keeping our social calendar full.

Platform Lead: Gorazd Breskvar
Gorazd spends way too much time in front of the computer making sure everything runs correctly and trying to achieve perfect code.
