Team Leader Magnet Forensics
Canada Canada
I graduated from the University of Waterloo for Computer Engineering and I'm fortunate enough to work as a Team Lead of Software Engineering at Magnet Forensics. As a team lead, I'm often looking to encourage better coding standards, creative approaches to problem solving, and ensure that good clean code makes it into the code base. I want my team to produce top-notch code, but I want to make sure that we're all learning to become better developers along the way.
