Griffith graduates Brodie Greig and Jak Heymink started their company worktrainweb in 2011 and haven’t looked back.
“We teamed up at Griffith, undertaking our final year project together, successfully delivering a custom sign language application, which was recognised by university staff for its innovative steps in assisting school children and adults in learning sign. After the completion of our degrees Brodie started working at an eLearning company in Fortitude Valley,” Jak said.
Brodie says when the opportunity came up for another web developer to join the team, it was easy to recommend Jak as his work ethic was excellent.
“We developed a great relationship through Griffith. As a Griffith alumnus, it felt natural to look out for my fellow alumni.”
After working together for almost two years, they moved on to start up their own web services venture.
“We currently contract staff in Australia and New Zealand and when we aren’t flying to Sydney for work, taking on team challenges as part of a great crew or delivering career inspiring presentations to promising university students, we are in Brisbane, working hard and passionately for our clients, helping them to build exciting marketing material and websites for their businesses that effectively reach out,” Brodie said.
Both are still involved with the Griffith community, with Brodie a mentor in the industry mentoring program.
He hopes to share his knowledge and experience and inspire a young student to get started in their career.
