Rich Gilbank has been a developer at Shopify (one of Canada’s leading SaaS companies) ever since it acquired Jet Cooper Рa 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.
