Growing the Knak Team!

Today we’re excited to announce the addition of two new team members to the Knak family.

Patrick Proulx is Knak’s new Head of Development and Jack Steele is joining us to be our Lead email and landing page developer.

We couldn’t be happier about Patrick and Jack joining the team. We conducted a ton of interviews to ensure that we found the right fit both from a skill and culture perspective. This is going to be huge for our customers as it means we will be able to move quicker, develop more features and develop a platform that enhances marketers productivity and campaign effectiveness.

Patrick Proulx is a full-stack developer who is responsible for leading the development efforts on the Knak platform. Pat has worked with us for about a year now as a subcontractor, and we are thrilled to bring him on full-time. He’s a perfect fit with the team and always puts the customer first.

“I love working at Knak” said Proulx, “it’s a real pleasure working with other people who are passionate about their work and about creating something that makes a really hard task simple and solves a real problem for marketers.”

“At Knak, whether it’s to create a great new feature, improve our site’s performance, or enhance usability, we’re always pushing the envelope to create the best possible platform for our clients.”

Jack Steele is a front-end developer who specializes in email and landing pages. Jack previously worked at Guestfolio, where he was helping build an email template tool for hoteliers. A self-proclaimed email geek who will follow in Nicole Merlin’s footsteps, Jack is also an entrepreneur who has started several of his own businesses and currently lives in Whistler, Canada.

“I am super excited to be joining Knak” says newly hired Jack, “I have a passion for innovative development and great design, Knak is able to create solutions for clients to combine the two with their powerful marketing tools. I joined Knak so that I can work at the forefront of email and front-end development and to join an awesome team in making Knak templating tools even more flexible and easy for customers to use.”

This is a major milestone for Knak. It’s going to really accelerate our growth and product development. Most of all, its going to provide our customers with a better experience and allow us to achieve our goals quicker.

We have some big product announcements coming soon, and Patrick and Jack are going to help us deliver on our ambitious visions for the future.

Pierce Ujjainwalla has years of experience as a CEO, entrepreneur, and marketing leader. He has lived in the marketing trenches at companies like IBM, SAP, NVIDIA, and Marketo, and he launched Knak in 2015 as a platform designed to help Marketers simplify email creation.
