PROFILE

His entrepreneurial mindset make him uniquely suited to the challenging and high pressure environment of a startup.

A Full-Stack Software Developer with a background in algorithmic trading software (quant development/data engineering/dev-ops) and
experience building consumer level production-grade web applications with a junior software dev team.

 
Andrew started his career in software development as a founding employee of a successful algorithmic sports-betting fund, X8313 Inc, employing cutting edge math & technology. Starting out as junior developer and culminating his journey there as the Technical Lead responsible for building the end-to-end software infrastructure (analytic dashboards, data housing ETL software and trade execution applications).

Following a year in pursuit of a degree at Dalhousie University, he became disillusioned by his studies and pursued the opportunity to work with an exceptionally talented team of industry mavens at X8313.

After completing the journey with X8313 and learning everything he could there, Andrew decided to partner up with Manjeet at Mikobyte and take on an incredible opportunity to continue his learning by building software for new, exciting projects in different fields. 

This experience paired with the strategic responsibilities of operating a start-up is the exact challenge he has come to realize he wants from his professional endeavors
