Left Welcomes Two New Members to the RightMesh Development Team

RightMesh, a project of Left, is growing!

As the RightMesh team moves aggressively towards their Soft Mainnet Launch, they have grown their Tech Team with two new engineers. We are pleased to welcome Dean Neumann as our VP of Engineering and Ming Hu as our Senior Software Engineer to the Left family!

About Dean

Our new VP Engineering, Dean Neumann, joins RightMesh with over 28 years experience in the software industry including key executive and management positions. At Intel, for example, Dean led strategic planning on advanced technologies to define technology developments required for the telecommunications and embedded markets. For the past 7 years, Dean has been CEO of Malaspina Labs Inc — concurrently serving as acting CTO from 2013–2017. While there, Dean directed research scientists in the creation of machine learning architectures for speech recognition and executed an organizational pivot from being a royalty-based software provider to pure IP licensor.

The opportunity to work on self-forming, self-healing, and self-regulating mobile mesh networks and its use cases most excited Dean about the prospect of joining the RightMesh project.

‘I think there’s a lot of potential for locating missing individuals; imagine your child gets separated from you at a busy bazaar, or a crowded refugee camp, or even Disneyland — a RightMesh enabled app or device would be able to support you in locating your child even when there is poor or low connectivity in the area.’

– Dean Neumann, VP Engineering

In the short while that Dean has been part of the RightMesh team he has already implemented effective changes within the organization such as introducing new processes to streamline development.

When not working, Dean enjoys tinkering in his electronics lab and machine shop, creating glass art, and ice climbing in the winter!

About Ming

Ming joins our team as our newest Senior Software Engineer. With a Master’s Degree from Tsinghua University in China and over 15 years experience in software development, Ming brings a plethora of knowledge to share throughout our organization.

Ming’s background has included key engineering roles in both larger corporations and successful startups, such as Best Buy, Elastic Path Software and GPower. Ming decided to join RightMesh because of the opportunity to work with cutting edge technology being developed in-house.

He is most excited for the opportunity to bring connectivity to those in rural regions which do not have access to, or cannot afford it. Ming feels that the RightMesh project will be able to contribute to decreasing the digital divide by providing last mile connectivity.

‘The RightMesh SDK has the potential to make a large impact as it will allow developers to build lots of apps to solve issues in their communities. This will spread adoption, help extend the unconnected’s reach into other communities and facilitate socialization.’

– Ming Hu, Senior Software Engineer


We are very excited to welcome both Dean and Ming to our software engineering team. Their work so far has already made positive impact in the process and building of the RightMesh platform.
