Meet the Team:
As the Senior App Developer, Mitchell leads the development team to bring you a new version of the AGvisorPRO app every week. To summarise his role, Mitchell spends most of his time making our other developers better developers.
Mitchell has many hobbies outside of work; at one point he was an amateur journalist covering various rallies in Calgary. Mitchell’s favourite thing about AGvisorPRO is that one day we had a big meeting about what health benefits we wanted, and we all agreed that mental health was a top priority.
Mitchell’s favorite quote comes from his dad:
“Don’t do what you love. That implies that you only love one thing. Look at all the things you love, and do one of the ones that makes you money.”
