"His experience in leading and delivering projects from large enterprise and content platforms to creative technology and disruptive tech for startups make him a natural fit.
"Appscore emerged from 2020 in a very strong position and having Hoang has part of our newly formed, technology leadership team will help us to continue improving the breadth and quality of work that we deliver to our clients."
Nguyen joins Appscore from CHE Proximity where he served as executive director of engineering.
He started programming at the age of six, was awarded a software patent by age 12, was top of his bachelor of information technology class at La Trobe University, and received the ACS Victoria award for the best final year IT student, among other awards.
Nguyen previously worked at Deepend (most recently as technical director), Web Marketing Experts (senior developer), Waivestar (developer) and Sao Bac Dau Technology (R&D officer and developer).
"I am really excited to be joining the team at Appscore. Technology is at the heart of every solution and in this newly created role I have an opportunity to keep offering new and innovative ways to help our customers solve business problems with solutions that are technology agnostic," he said.
"I have been mentoring and leading teams for several years now and what possibly sets me apart from other leaders is my understanding and love for all things code and getting my hands dirty. I thrive on keeping up to date with the latest technologies and trialing them in order to filter cutting-edge from bleeding-edge, build up use-cases, establish implementation plans, and then roll them out to clients. The key is striking a balance between pushing for the latest 'best practice' in tech (and often, taming my own excitement) and the practical considerations of the clients' existing ecosystem."
