We're here to help.
You’ve met and continue to meet tons of great people in your life but you’ve probably been too busy to stay in touch with most of them. You also know that life is not about to slow down. We want to help you keep in touch with these important people and to help you deepen your relationships with them in a supportive and authentic way. We're here to listen to you and learn how we can keep improving (in fact, we’re a bit obsessive about wanting to hear from you!)
We are UpHabit.
Passionate, hardworking people working together towards the same mission.
Neil is UpHabit's founder, which is his whopping 8th startup. His last exit was in 2016 and he just can't stop that entrepreneurial spirit -- after all, he's been doing it for almost 30 years! He has a strong passion for supporting the UpHabitants, his #1 role within the company, as well as working on the UpHabit app and company itself. A software engineer of over 30 years, by nature Neil loves delighting customers. In addition to his work at UpHabit, Neil coaches young entrepreneurs in order to aide the next generation of founders build their own great businesses.
Senior Backend Engineer
Human. Does stuff. Also a geek, a book lover, a TEDx follower, and a huge Lord of the Rings fan. A backend developer during the day. Super excited to have joined the UpHabit family to learn and grow with our team and be part of the process of building something we'd all be proud of. (Also everyone here is nice! That's.. ummm.. nice! :D)
Senior Mobile Engineer
Software developer since 2008, and has since worked with great web and mobile products. Good listener. When not coding Thiago enjoys reading about and discussing math, drinking coffee, and spending time with Máyra (his wife) and Cookie (his cat). Values quality relationships and empathy above all, which is why he loves the culture UpHabit is building!
Senior Mobile Engineer
Resident nerd of all things Android with a soft spot for AI. Abdo is a proud Ravenclaw with a passion for vexillology and linguistics. In his spare time, he enjoys singing in choirs, running marathons, baking, and is almost always found passed out sleeping next to Odin (his dog). Abdo is delighted to be a part of UpHabit as he strongly believes that it’s always the little things that make the biggest differences.
Amanda is an aspiring yoga poser that enjoys travelling and spending time at home with her family Steve, Adora (favourite cat) and Samson (least favourite cat). When she’s not posing, she hustles as a Product Manager, obsessing over customers and helping to build solutions that address their everyday problems. Amanda is most passionate about this and is very excited to connect and evolve with UpHabit as she knows it will help her and others build deeper relationships.
Kevin has been working as a UI/UX designer for the last 5 years, creating usable and visually appealing digital experiences. Kevin believes that great design shouldn’t just look good but it needs to be meet the needs of user and solve their problems in the best possible ways. At Uphabit, he’s excited to put his skills to the test and collaborate with a fantastic team to evolve the Uphabit app. When he’s not designing, Kevin has a love for live music, art, movies and Toronto’s ever expanding craft beer scene.
Growth Marketer & Community Manager
One part data-altruist who indulges in analytics, one part fanciful-dreamer who indulges in novels, and one part aspiring craft beer aficionado who indulges in pale ales. Fortunately, her years abroad in Ireland taught Alex the value of the dream, the grind, and the beer. That’s the spirit that drove her to UpHabit, which marries the former while letting her practice marketing for the greater good.
Shaida strives to create an engaged, open-door, trusting, and fun employee environment for innovative companies. Shaida is like a bear to honey for any activities that involve laughter and people (from board games to zip lining!) Shaida is excited to work with Neil who places such emphasis on Employees First and honestly values their opinions, ideas, and mistakes... using these as the building blocks of our company.
