Alumni Updates: Spring Edition!

When the job news from alumni rolls in, Ella – our student success coordinator – alerts the office and excitement spikes! We love hearing from past students when they’ve moved on to bright new opportunities. Better still, we love an opportunity to celebrate your wins!

To start off the new hire announcements, we'd like to extend warm wishes to Bliss Man! Bliss is an engineer turned web developer. Originally in the auto industry, since Bitmaker, he's been picked up by CBC! He's now the national broadcaster's Senior Analyst for Monetization Platforms and Services.
