"I've worked with Melissa in two separate organisations now. She is diligent, independent and brings a high level of quality to the work she does and the outcomes she is responsible for. Put simply, I trust the Midnyte City team to get on with the job at Middy's, and do a great job. And they continue to deliver."

Why Midnyte City?
Our customers are start-ups who need to move quickly, scale-ups who need to build specialist technical capability into their teams and organisations and enterprises with progressive leadership who recognise that scaling their developer productivity effectively is the key to competitive advantage in the market. Our clients are creating high-performance organisations, and recognise they need help from experts and trusted partners to succeed.
The Midnyte City team of highly skilled and experienced, hands-on-keyboards, technical consultants help customers build high performance, ethical, purpose-driven tech teams and organisations. The most consistently successful engagement model broadly maps to:
1-2 consultants with specific skills and experience
Join a customer delivery team, (either on-site or remotely)
For a predetermined period of time
To assist in delivering a project or outcome
Through the delivery of the project or outcome the Midnyte City crew build specialist capability into the delivery team by sharing their specific skills and experience with that team
We believe in teaching people to fish, rather than catching fish for them, and that a rising tide lifts all boats. Thus our approach to consulting is to avoid creating dependence, and focus instead on collaboratively building internal technology capability with our customers.

Henrik loves to work across a broad range of problems in the IT landscape. Starting out in computer game and web development, he then moved into business analysis and scrum master roles largely focused on financial services. However, the lure of the code editor is strong and recently Henrik has been focusing on the cloud engineering space and how he can leverage his blend of skills to build compliant, usable and useful platform tools.
Some recent projects he has worked on include SAQ-A PCI compliance for a cloud platform, designing routing for east-west traffic through AWS transit gateway and building a Slackbot to grant access to AWS accounts.
