Junior Business Analyst
I make websites, data migrations, and other business applications the client needs. I love the good vibes at Fitzroy IT, the passion our team has for the job, the pool table, and free drinks!
I like to enjoy every moment (this is one thing I like about working here – you can tell everyone enjoys the moment!) Other hobbies: playing piano, guitar (bass guitar soon), hiking, dancing salsa, travelling around the world, watching old movies, listening to all kinds of music, and trying new food every week.

If you’ve ever seen Pulp Fiction, then you’ll understand what we mean when we say Geoff is our resident Winston Wolf, the Fixer—he fixes all our problems. (Well, our technical ones, at least.) When he’s not permeating the office with his superior technical skills and sense of humour, Geoff likes to fill out random Internet surveys and drink margaritas.
“The best part about working for Fitzroy IT are the pretzels, the lunch area, and the free lattes.”
(But we’re pretty sure he loves working with your clients and our team, too.)

Justin works with Fitzroy IT’s existing and new clients to help find solutions for their unique problems. He also tries to help the team execute various strategic initiatives and projects (but usually tries to stay out of their way so they can do what they do best!). Outside of work, Justin loves spending time with his family, playing golf, or going to watching the mighty Roo boys!
“I love that we’re a collaborative bunch at Fitzroy IT—the best idea is the best idea.”
Justin handles front and back-end development while drinking way too much coffee. Our highly caffeinated web developer enjoys playing survival computer games, and tinkering with things in that mad scientist take-it-apart-never-put-it-back-together style.
"My favourite thing about Fitz is the variety of work. Being able to work on two apps, back-end and front-end on a single project makes me a very happy coder! ERRR... the people! I meant to say it's the people."
Liam works alongside Callum as frontline support for Fitzroy IT’s clients, as well as an auxiliary resource to other high-level projects: everything from mundane data-entry and resource tracking, to web development and testing. When he’s not working, Liam is an avid motorcyclist and a fan of vintage motorcycles (he even rides to work most days!). Liam’s also a very big music buff—it’s common to see him around, rocking out with a pair of headphones.
“I like the camaraderie that's cultivated at Fitzroy IT. It feels more like I'm working with my mates than just my colleagues, and I find it makes me that much more productive in that I genuinely want to help my co-workers succeed in their endeavours.”
Technical Support Officer
Michelle helps our clients by designing well, pretty much everything. Prototypes, websites, apps, logos, print layouts, animation, illustration (including
the team pics on this page) to name just a few! When she’s not taking over the office with her contagious laughter, Michelle loves playing the piano,
staying active (running, gymnastics, strength training), and tasting food all over Melbourne!
"Fitzroy IT has such a positive vibe - working here always inspires me to be as creative as I can be. There's never a dull day in the workplace when you're collaborating with the most amazing (and hilarious) team; I'm always learning about new design trends and tools, and doodling mini-comics about my colleagues. This place feels like home!"
At Fitzroy IT, I love the working flexibility, the great sense of humour everyone has, and the nice working atmosphere of a close-knit team. Since it’s a small group, I have the chance to get involved in daily aspects of the business (development, operations, sales, marketing etc). I enjoy learning new things everyday, constantly improving my skills and knowledge in any area of technology. I also love dealing with customers and learning about their business, unique challenges, and finding ways to help them.
I love travelling around the world (and have lived and worked in Asia for 10 years), the great outdoors, hiking, camping, surfing, swimming, stand up paddleboard in the summer, and snowboarding in the winter.

“I am passionate about cooking. My plan was always to attend a culinary school in Italy, but ended up in IT! Apart from that, I play cricket for Box Hill North cricket club, and also enjoy playing computer games.
Everyone is friendly and are keen on helping each other. Even in a virtual environment, the positivity just flows out through everyone’s webcam!”
