About Me

IN A NUTSHELL

STIJN WINAND

SOFTWARE ENGINEER & DIGITAL PROBLEM SOLVER IN MONTREAL

The name's pronounced "Stan" by the way, in case you were wondering. Hello! I'm a Montreal based developer with a love for data and finding solutions to your digital problems.

I immigrated to Canada in 2009 and became a permanent resident since. Resettling across an ocean has been an amazing experience.

Starting out as a client facing UI/UX designer for corporate applications, I got to work with clients such as Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda. It was then my passion for code was awakened.

The last few years I've spent developing for desktop applications used by Canadian Police and Youth Protection services, giving me the opportunity to see the Canadian North in all its wild beauty.

Now, I've shifted my gears towards the web with JavaScript and the MEAN stack which allows me to bring my multimedia background back into the mix and develop for complex projects with great design.

RESUME

Over the last 10 years, I've worked with numerous software, operating systems, programming languages and other technologies.

My greatest strength has always been my insatiable curiosity. It has allowed me to self-learn technologies with ease, quickly understand business processes, or solve problems before they are problems. My interest in the natural world, the human condition and the universe are logical side-effects. I try to learn something new every day.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Owner / Software Engineer
OddKeep Software Inc. // 2014 - today

Under the umbrella of my own corporation I've worked worked as a consultant for various clients. I've implemented JavaScript based code across the full-stack from UI to API's for businesses large and small.

Software Developer
Police Automated Management Systems Inc. // 2012 - today

Here I wore many hats. I designed User Interfaces and wrote back-end code. I maintained legacy code and wrote new features. I've taken charge of projects and I've followed. I've fulfilled an off-hours support role, had client meetings and traveled on-site to provide training to end users.

I've worked on applications used by Canadian First Nations Police and Youth Protection Services. I'm particularly proud about my contributions to a system that enables inter-connectivity between Canadian northern communities where internet connections are not always guaranteed.

User Experience Designer / Liaison Officer

Starting out as a UI/UX Designer for applications used by various automotive brands, I ended up as a Liaison Officer assigned to D'ieteren Group, a company which imports and distributes the vehicles of Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT, Škoda, Bentley, Lamborghini, Bugatti and Porsche across Belgium.

My role was to be the single point of contact for clients, to understand their needs and translate them into their application with the development team.
