This month we shine the light on Tim Powers, our Senior Software Engineer. Tim hails from Bowmanville, Ontario, where he was quite the high school jock, playing both rugby and hockey. Although Tim has only been with Rimrock since May, he is no stranger to Rimrock. A former employee, Tim worked with us in the early days from 2004-2006. He went on to work for companies including Tectura, Hewlett Packard (HP), and most recently he was the Dynamics 365 Business Solutions Advisor at Avanade. We are thrilled to have Tim back with the team.

Deciding which enhancements should be included in software releases.
