Who is MineBytes?

At MineBytes we do not believe that you can thrive in a vacuum. Our consultants are active at the best enterprise companies, building world-class solutions that make an impact. Our goal is to support you to become so good that you can not be ignored!

The seed for MineBytes came to Pieter Kirsten when he sat at a directors meeting for a previous startup. The meeting was held at a long desk that could easily host 20 people. Looking at this long empty table he thought: ‘What if I could fill each seat with the best people in their respective fields?’ He knew this was only possible if he started a new company, which he did. For this reason, MineBytes is looking for excellent people!
