RightMesh Hires Five New Members to the Development Team

The RightMesh tech team is continuing to expand to match growing development needs for our pilot project in Canada’s North and in preparation for our Soft Mainnet Launch. We’re pleased to welcome David Sheen as our QA Lead, Peter Dang as our Software Engineer Android, Xuan Luo as our Mitacs Intern, and Matthew Falkner and Penjani Chavula as our Software Engineer Co-ops.

About David

Our new QA Lead, David Sheen, joins RightMesh with over 18 years experience in software and systems testing. He has worked with both large organizations, such as Ericsson and Telus, and scale-up organizations, such as Function Point, to implement best in class processes and procedures. Having led multiple successful teams, we’re looking forward to what he will bring to the table.

I am looking forward to working on a team that can deliver such an important project as RightMesh. Being able to bring connectivity to rural regions is vitally needed. My being able to support the project by identifying issues and helping improve the level of quality and stability gets me really excited.
– David Sheen, QA Lead

About Peter

Peter Dang joins RightMesh as our newest Software Engineer. With experience as both an Android Mobile Developer and Web Developer, he is a double threat and a great asset to the organization. Peter’s previous roles have included working in fintech and integrating payment systems.

The Internet is currently only accessible to 35 per cent of people in emerging markets. Connectivity will help these nations accelerate progress, bridge the digital divide, and develop knowledge societies. I am looking forward to being a part of finding a solution.
– Peter Dang, Software Engineer, Android

About Xuan

Our new Mitacs Intern, Xuan Luo, joins RightMesh through our research project in partnership with Mitacs and the University of Guelph. Xuan is currently pursuing her Master’s Degree with a specialization in blockchain technologies, payment channels, and machine learning, from the University of British Columbia.

Throughout her internship, Xuan will be working closely with Dr. David Wang, Chief Micropayments Scientist at RightMesh, to work on payment channels.

Prior to pursuing her Master’s Degree, Xuan worked as a software developer for 6 years at notable companies including SAP.

About Penjani

Penjani is a Computer Engineering student in his third year at the University of British Columbia and is joining the RightMesh team as a Software Engineer Co-op. Prior to working at RightMesh, Penjani did an internship with Microsoft as a Software Engineer and worked as an Emerging Media (VR) Developer at the UBC Emerging Media Lab. In his spare time, Penjani also works as an Autonomous Navigation and Communication Developer with UBC Voyage.

I am really excited to work on technology that could empower millions of people through connectivity. Mesh-enabled applications that promote education, such as the sharing of resources, can make a big impact. It could be a wonderful platform for learning.
– Penjani Chavula, Software Engineer Co-op

About Matthew

Matthew is a Software Engineering Student at the University of Guelph and joins our team as a Software Engineer Co-op. Matthew first learned about RightMesh through the research work we’re doing in partnership with his school and Mitacs to improve connectivity in northern Canada.

Prior to working at RightMesh, Matthew did two internships with BlackBerry on enterprise solutions and automation testing.

I am very excited to work on something that hasn’t been built before! There are a lot of potential use cases, such as group discussion boards for communities on given topics enabled through a local mesh. Not all communities have an internet connection and it would be cool to give them the opportunity to have long form group discussions on the things they find important.
– Matt Falker, RightMesh Co-op


We’re very excited to welcome David, Peter, Xuan, Penjani, and Matt to our software engineering team. Although they only joined the team a short while ago, they’ve already started to make their mark on our platform and the organization as a whole.
