Aulay Macaulay – Operations & Development (Founder)
Roster Plus is Aulay’s brainchild. It was first inspired by his girlfriend who often found it impossible to juggle work shifts and Uni because of a failing roster system. At this time his small web development company was routinely building successful startups for other people, so in ’09 RP became a sideline project for Aulay’s team.
By 2010 Aulay had become obsessed; no more fast cars, globetrotting or chilling down the beach. Roster Plus has taken over all of his time as he pushes it towards becoming an internationally successful startup. But don’t ask about his girlfriend.

Brendan has been programming for over 6 years. Originally starting in game development, he switched gears 3 years ago and started focusing on development of websites and web applications. He joined the Roster Plus team not long after version one had been finished, mid 2009, and is now responsible for the cogs and gears that continuously spin away behind the scenes.
