Stef ColaDirector of Engineering
A leader with a strong technology background with demonstrated experience leading an engineering team from early stages to operational excellence through systematising and scaling delivery business units.
I cut my teeth in the education sector by starting a digital department to deliver innovative digital products to automate workflows and reduce business overhead in a heavily regulated industry. I have since moved into the enterprise software space delivering complex solutions into the finance, manufacturing, utilities, IoT, and transport and logistics industries.
I recently completed my graduate certificate in Business Management and am continuing on with my MBA with RMIT with a focus in Design Thinking, Technology and Innovation.
I am passionate about working with women in STEAM, enabling entrepreneurship, and leveraging technology to enable creative endeavours. I connect my passions with my industry through volunteer positions as the Chair of the Bendigo La Trobe University IoT Ecosystem Advisory Board and by running our regional developer meetup community.
