Rich Gilbank has been a developer at Shopify (one of Canada’s leading SaaS companies) ever since it acquired Jet Cooper – a UX agency known for its lean product design and development process, where he worked as a lead front-end developer. Prior to Jet Cooper, Rich founded and ran his own web development studio, Groundhog Media, and worked with clients to deliver jaw-dropping digital experiences.

A graduate of the New Media program at Ryerson, Rich is known for not being afraid to make, hack or tinker with anything that looks like it can be modified; this is especially true when it comes to open source projects, electronics and motorcycles.
