Our Team

Meet out team of fearless dragons

Roger B. Managing dragon Has a wide experience as an IT entrepreneur for more than 10 years

Roger made his first steps in IT back in 2004. Since 2006 he founded, developed and ran a group of four IT companies which spread their operations internationally, and succeeded to provide their services to hundreds of small, medium and large companies throughout the world. In 2010 and 2014, Roger co-founded several ecommerce businesses which continue to conduct sales in 100+ countries up to this day.

Roger was also involved as a team leader and had managing roles in many startups throughout the years, contributing to their growth and development. Some of the startups were social networking websites, augmented reality apps, and face recognition projects. Roger gained a lot of experience on how to take an idea, develop a great product out of it, launch it, make customers love it, and make it become a success.

SSL Dragon is one of Roger’s favorite projects, where he serves both as a co-founder and as a manager. Roger’s involvement in SSL Dragon on a managing role is definitely an asset and of a great benefit for everybody involved, and especially for the customers who will greatly benefit from SSL Dragon’s outstanding online security services. Being based in San Jose, which is the heart of Silicon Valley, and a very inspiring and meaningful location for technology entrepreneurs and companies, Roger’s next goal on SSL Dragon is to take the company globally.

Anette J. Operations dragon She took an active role in the development of the company and its products

Anette is a part of SSL Dragon since Day One. She saw the company going through all phases, from the idea stage, to the architecture phase, the development, and launch. She took an active role in the development of the company by shaping the way the SSL Dragon’s products and services are made and presented. During the SSL Dragon’s development, and now while SSL Dragon is fully operational and is selling its security solutions throughout the world, Anette has a key role in making things happen by organizing our entire team’s work towards the delivery of our services to all our greatly appreciated customers.

Anette has a Bachelor Degree in Economic Science, and 5 years of experience in IT projects where she served as a Senior Project Manager. Her education in Economics and her experience in IT are a great combination for one to be able to perform in a company like SSL Dragon. Our narrow specialization in online security services, together with the need of managing our IT personnel towards a common goal of serving our clients best, make Anette a great and indispensable asset in our company.

As a co-founder of SSL Dragon, Anette is a powerful voice inside the company. She has a lot of merits on what SSL Dragon has become, and she is a strong influencer on what SSL Dragon is going to be in the future. With her fine eye for creative and beautiful things, her hard work, dedication and passion towards making things look and work close to perfection, we can only expect SSL Dragon to reach new heights in the months and years to come.

Sergiu R. Development dragon Does development for more than 8 years and makes extraordinary ideas come to life

Sergiu is our rock star developer who did most of our web presence. Sergiu is with us for several years, and was invited to join the SSL Dragon team when the project idea came up. We knew many developers whom we could hire. But we asked Sergiu to come on board, because he is the very best specialist whom we know in his area of expertise. We want the best for SSL Dragon, and Sergiu was the very best pick for our project.

What we really like about Sergiu is that he was able to bring all our crazy ideas to life. He never complains. He just goes and does it. No matter how difficult or unusual a thing is, he always finds a way to do it, and he does it fast. We love having highly skilled and specialists among us, and Sergiu is definitely one of them.

Sergiu has been doing development for over 8 years. But his technical skills and talent are like he has been doing that for twice longer. He has a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science, and delights us with his intelligence and expertise. He worked on countless web and mobile projects in his career, and we hope that SSL Dragon is his favorite 🙂

Katie A. Content dragon Arranges words in blog posts and descriptions on the SSL Dragon’s website

Katie is our youngest dragon that spits fire and lights up our website with engaging descriptions and blog posts. She is our passionate content writer, crazy about cyber security enhancements and contributions to safer Internet connections.

Katie has 5 years of experience in payment card risk management. From counterfeit transactions to phishing scams, she knows exactly how to teach you about online security and fraud prevention. Moreover, her obsession with payment protection techniques and the emerging number of evil fraudsters inspired her to write about ‘Risks of bank’s informational system and ways of ensuring its security’ in her Master Thesis. This is when she became a true fan of cyber security and website protection.

Thus, when we proposed her to be our Content dragon at SSLDragon, she cordially accepted our offer. Katie is responsible for arranging almost every word that you read on this website (even the ones you’ve just read J), so you could easily understand what is an SSL Certificate and how it protects your website. She writes with great pleasure and enthusiasm, not being afraid of using scary terms like “man-in-the-middle attack” to give comprehensive guidelines about enhancing your website’s security.

Matthew G. Technical Support Dragon Solves the most elaborate technical problems and security issues for our customers

Matthew is our fearless tech dragon. He says that each technical problem for him is a new mission that will save somebody’s life. He fancies himself as bravely fighting with “evil” errors every time he spends time on solving our customers’ technical requests. And he simply can’t stop until he successfully completes his mission (now we know why he enjoys playing RPG games with dragons).

We are very lucky to have Matthew in our team of dragons. His 10-years experience in elaborately solving the most difficult web security problems and SSL Certificate “puzzles” is a very precious asset in offering really great technical support to our customers. He has an endless passion for making each and every client truly satisfied and happy. Matthew even jokes that he could do it for free if we gave him a dragon costume, a sword, and a shield.

Besides all that, we love that Matthew never stops learning. He is always up-to-date with the latest tech news and innovations in the online security field, to make sure that he provides smart and reliable solutions to our customers. For this reasons, our clients are fascinated with his impressive skills and feel confident that their issue will be solved in no time, while Matthew is excited to have completed another mission. We feel completely safe with such a brave dragon on board.

John M. Social Media Dragon Engages customers with unique social media posts and images

John has only one thing he cannot live without: socializing. Since his early childhood, he was afraid that he wouldn’t have enough time to talk to everyone about everything. Luckily, he made his first steps in IT right at the same time when Mark Zuckerberg solved John’s problem and launched Facebook. John speaks about the 4th of February, 2004 (the day when Facebook was launched) as his second birthday.

This is why, for John, being our Social Media Dragon is a passion, not just a regular job. He enjoys staying up all night and answering questions on forums or posting engaging images and Tweets, then follow how they are being shared with so much thrill. Sometimes, he even loses track of time, especially after his 5th espresso. Fortunately, he just checks the timestamp of the latest notification and quickly engages into another entertaining discussion for several hours.

Thus, if you sent us a message in Facebook and you got your answer back right away, now you know that it was John. He worked as a Social Media Manager in the IT industry for over 6 years before joining SSL Dragon, so he knows exactly what is the best image/text recipe for perfect Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter posts. He is our Social Master Chef that loves to experiment with words and illustrations for creating unique posts every day.
