About Lisa Basel

Lisa is Director of Technology in the Global Strategy & Operations Division at Dimagi, with a focus of supporting Dimagi‚Äôs New Business, Research and Development, and Office of the CEO teams. 
Lisa is based in Cape Town. After completing an Engineering degree in KwaZulu-Natal, she started her career as a C++ Developer in the UK. With her heart and family in South Africa, she returned and found her inspiration as a developer in small startups. A retrenchment from a cash strapped startup in 2021 nudged Lisa into a new direction. Co-founding a custom software development company with the dream of building a SaaS product. After about 10 years when the software product was the foundation of BriefYourMarket.com, she left to pursue adventures in smaller teams.  
Prior to working at Dimagi, she led a SaaS product development team in a Tech4Good UK company delivering mobile eLearning and digital solutions that work on cheap, low resource legacy phones. 
In her free time, Lisa used to spend it going up and down mountains. Now looking at mountains and relaxing in wild nature is her treat.
