Meet a Whipcordian: Kam Shahid

By Kam Shahid on July 18, 2019

My name is Kam and when I was five years old, I wanted to be an astronaut. By the time I was six years old, I realized I had a better chance of designing spaceships than actually flying them. So, I decided to become an aerospace engineer. One of my deep, dark secrets is that I grew up in Hamilton, Ontario (that’s me standing in front of the first Tim Hortons in Hamilton). It wasn’t until I moved to Toronto that I was able to realize my educational ambitions.

By Norm Nelson, System Administrator on January 2, 2019

Hello everyone! My name is Norm Nelson, I joined the Whipcord team as a System Administrator back in July of 2018. I was born and raised in the windy city of Lethbridge, but as someone who isn't a fan of the wind I spent much of my childhood playing around with computers. Since I was always breaking something by pushing each system to it limits, it was a great way to get practical "unintended" IT experience as a kid.

By David Burgess, System Administrator on December 12, 2018

Nobody at Whipcord would admit publicly that I was hired on my name alone, but Whipcord needed a System Administrator, and upsetting the longstanding Canadian business convention of stabling at least one Dave or David in the company at all times was out of the question. With a name like David Burgess, I was a shoo-in.
