Throughout his 15-year career as a software developer, management consultant and founder, Sam has embodied the entrepreneurial spirit. While working alongside companies to understand their problems and build software solutions to help them move faster, he started to see a trend – a lot of inefficient, manual work was being done by small businesses, and it was slowing down an industry that everyone in the community needed. This led Sam to the idea that software could do more than fix a single process problem — it could modernize processes for the entire small business industry. Fast forward 8 years and Sam is the driving force behind Jobber, leading the company as it builds products that transform the way small home service businesses operate.
Forrest is Jobber’s in-house tech junkie. After graduating with an Engineering degree from the University of Alberta, Forrest spent time developing solutions that helped companies to automate their processes. When his friend Graham, who owned a painting business needed some help, Forrest saw first-hand how these types of businesses relied on outdated manual processes, costing them valuable time that could be better spent with friends, family or focusing on growing their business. That’s when Forrest’s tech obsession evolved from a passion into a purpose: building software to help people in small business be successful. 8 years later, Forrest uses his technical expertise to align the Product Management, Engineering, and Design teams within Jobber to build software that’s changing the lives of people in small business.
