We are a potent team with a combined 124 years of experience, have written over one million lines of code (that would be ten million if not for Moxie.Build), and are keeping track of nearly a billion data points in today's live production systems.
Human connections are unique still and a long way from being replaced. We highly value these connections even as we help you navigate the present and future worlds of AI, Blockchain, Web3, the Metaverse, Quantum, and beyond.
Colin Schmidt is a seasoned founder, COO, and CEO with a diverse background in technology companies and expertise as a system architect for a range of clients, including non-profits, startups, mid-sized companies, and global enterprises.
After publishing his first commercial software in 1995, an MS-DOS equestrian vaulting scoring system, he closed his first larger customer, Horse Council of BC in 1998. HCBC is still a customer of Wisebox Solutions today.
During the 2000s and in parallel to building what would become Wisebox, Colin built and sold a successful IT MSP division focused on IT infrastructure and security.
From 1998 to 2002 significant research time was spent on database architecture. Version 1.0 of what would become Moxie.Build went live for HCBC in 2003. It was one of the first in-memory relational databases. Today, Moxie.Build is a robust web/API development platform with a proven track record for marketplaces, eCommerce, and business process automation.
During his time at the University of the Fraser Valley, he completed co-op work terms for Boarder Customs and then Correctional Services of Canada which he stayed on with for an additional year after completing two co-op terms.
While serving as COO of i-Open Group, he oversaw all planning and operations for 30+ staff, launched eight new lines of business in three years, and managed the architecture and development of web and mobile apps using a wide range of technologies with both in-house and outsourced staff.
Starting in 2016, Colin started organizing local community tech events in Chilliwack, in partnership with the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation, Community Futures South Fraser, and the University of the Fraser Valley to run a variety of ongoing meetups, Startup Hackathons, and Game Jams.
Colin is also an accomplished equestrian vaulter who has competed, coached, and judges at the international level and has led or served various boards and committees across equestrian sport.
