Who We Are

The work we do are projects, not products. The people we work with are partners, not customers. Each school board that joins a project is treated like an investor. You’re involved in sprint cycles, pricing discussions, and we’ve even shared source code with larger school districts who have their own teams of developers. Our hope is that each school board that joins our community shares the same vision we do about disrupting the education technology market with better software, better support, at a dramatically lower cost.

Our Team

 Brad

I’m Brad and I like to build things. It’s always been more fun to have other kids in the sandbox which is why we enjoy working directly with the people who power education to make that happen. Most people are skeptical when they hear this, but I’m married with six amazing kids. I like board games, water fights, and sneaking up on my wife when she least expects it!

Richard

I’m Richard and I thrive off the endorphins I get from solving an insanely difficult problem for which nobody else has the appetite. I’ve been a software engineer for over 25 years focusing on high scalability and secure systems. I’m married with five kids and my wife and I enjoy marathon running, triathlons, and scaling random mountain tops.

Randy

I’m Randy and I love working with people, conversing and collaborating is something I’ve enjoyed throughout my entire career. I find it extremely rewarding to know the impact our company is having with at risk youth. In my spare time you can find me hiking, boating, golfing, or challenging my family to a game of Kaiser.

I’m Brenda and the busier I am the happier I am. I am very passionate about mental health and children and I love what I do everyday that contributes to both.. I have 3 awesome grown children that keep me on my toes and very entertained. I am grateful to live in Kelowna and take full advantage of everything the beautiful Okanagan has to offer.

Kaleb

Kaleb here! I’ve spent my career in sales and marketing management. I love building relationships and connecting people with time-saving, day-making solutions. When I’m not in the office, you can find my wife and I hiking with our dogs, back-country camping, or cruising around town in our aggressively average, suburban motorcycle gang.

Amber

I'm Amber and I've been designing everything from logos and business cards to websites and apps for over nine years. My approach to design is both creative and analytical, with the user's experience always at top of mind. Outside of work I love to dance, hula hoop, roller skate and cruise around the Okanagan on my motorcycle.

Nick

It’s Nick! It’s my absolute pleasure to create new and interesting software with the use of code. In my spare time I’m often cooking up a storm, attempting creative and intriguing recipes for myself and my wife to enjoy - I’m also a big fan of biking and lounging around the house!

Ravan

Hi, I'm Ravan! My favourite part about software development is working with new technologies and languages. When I'm not coding, I like being outside either hiking, or playing some active sport, usually basketball.

Our Leaders

Our board is a key source of wisdom and insight. Everything we do is tempered by this volunteer group of senior leaders in K-12 education. The board is ultimately responsible for the strategic vision of the company, feature prioritization, pricing, executive level hiring, and other key operational decisions. Full GL-level access is offered to each board member to ensure absolute accountability and transparency to the entire community of school districts we serve.

Our Values

Values are important for setting a corporate sense of right and wrong. They help us grow and develop as a team by keeping us focused on what really matters. The most innovative thing Imagine Everything has developed is a hybrid working model between the private and public education sector. Project and feature innovation belongs to the people in our education community who have shared their vision for how software must work. There are four key pieces that guide all decision making and accountability within our team:

We’re here to protect children. Above all else, Imagine Everything was founded with the purpose of designing affordable software that could identify and rescue at-risk children. As we embark on new projects and initiatives we feel it is essential to stay grounded towards this mission.

School boards play an integral role in our governance. Imagine Everything is a hybrid that utilizes the speed, agility, and efficiency of the private sector. But, it’s critical that we keep school boards at the helm through our board of directors so the temperance, wisdom, and longevity of experience of public education continue to guide the company.

All project funding must come from school boards. The revenue from each project directly funds the technical and people cost of providing school boards with enterprise software. By excluding private investors we can remain accountable to a single master: education. Our bylaws also prohibit any form of debt financing which ensures Imagine Everything remains stable and predictable.

We’re about people and product, not profit. Although Imagine Everything is a privately held company, it operates on a zero-base budget. This means that every dollar of revenue generated from projects goes right back into providing school districts with top-notch technical infrastructure and hiring the best software developers and designers available to support school boards. It also means providing technologies “at cost” to help crush the skyrocketing cost of education software.
