Backend Specialist & Administrative Jedi
Stefan's professional life has followed the axiom: "Jack of all trades, master of none."
Trained in accounting at Mohawk College, Stefan has had a varied career in disparate fields: property manager, tax professional, hospitality manager, and inside sales representative. In 2016, he took the leap to become a business development specialist for GOTSKILL, a disruptive tech innovator focused on the hospitality industry.
Alongside Steve, he co-founded JAKTRAED in late 2019 as an outsider with a broad vision: to make all purchases of contracting and trades services equivalent to shopping for groceries, choosing a computer repair technician, or taking your car into the mechanic's shop for an oil change.
In short, to streamline the estimate -> job completion -> receivable workflow and make sure that talented contractors aren't hard scrabbling with fly-by-nighters for scarce projects.
