Ben Duggan

Ben Duggan

Product Owner

Nobody really knows exactly what Ben’s role is, including Ben, but let’s just say, if you ask him if he can do something, he’ll say yes and then just figure out a way to make it happen. He’s a product pro, bridging the gap between the customer success, enablement and product teams, as well as our marketing design, photographer and web development wizard, who conveniently also cuts a little code on the side.

Family man, sheep and beef farmer, Chartered Accountant specialising in agribusiness and oh - he also happens to code in his spare time (not saying much for the social scene in Turakina, but nevertheless very impressive). As well as managing all of Figured’s commercial aspects, Carl is also heavily involved in our product development and strategy and, of course, is one of the two original founders of Figured.

(Even more importantly though, she makes a seriously mean batch of scones.)

James Black

James Black

GM Australia

While we try and hold the fact that James is Aussie against him, it’s pretty hard when he possibly has the best chat this side of Knuckey’s Lagoon. James is a fourth generation South Australian cropping and livestock farmer and agribusiness expert, with impressive digital experience creating and managing the successful start-up, Agsure. James is working closely with accounting firms throughout the country ensuring Figured is perfectly tailored for Australian farmers.

Account Manager

He’s tech savvy, he’s an accountant and what’s more, he’s been working in the rural sector in Australia with e-commerce retailer, Agsure, so he knows a thing or two about agribusiness, therefore achieving the perfect trifecta for a role as a Figured account manager.

Rodrigo Rodrigues

Rodrigo Rodrigues

Developer

For the last few years, the Digital Port in Recife City, the Silicon Valley of South America, has been Rodrigo’s stomping ground. We wanted to poach him across the South Pacific, so we lied and told him it was warm here, and we’re lucky to now have him sharing his insight in our product dev team. Rodrigo has over 10 years of experience in web development as a full-stack developer, and can solve the Rubik's Cube like a boss in under two minutes.

Sasha Varganov

Sasha Varganov

Senior Developer

Sasha joined us from NZME thanks to the lure of playing with the latest technology stack here at Figured (we know the way to a developer’s heart). He’s fancy footed on both the basketball court and the d-floor, swapping between three-pointers and tango steps when he’s not working with our product dev team to build a world-class farm accounting tool.

He’s backed by experience at MYOB, BankLink, is a provisional member of CAANZ and CPA and holds a double major in accounting and marketing, so we think Scott’s pretty well placed to help ensure customers have a great experience getting set up and using Figured to its full potential.
