Featured: The 2020 Email Creation Maturity Model

Welcome Shyley Beauty and David Ellis

We are happy to introduce you to two new members of the Knak development team: Shyley Beauty and David Ellis. 

Shyley, our newest Email Developer, comes to Knak from a digital marketing agency, where she was responsible for designing and developing emails along with creating animated motion graphics. She’s passionate about great UI/UX design and is always looking for new ways to master the craft of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP. 

Shyley wears many hats. She started coding HTML/CSS in middle school (for fun!), and then became a Veterinary Assistant in Niagara before getting her degree in Multimedia Design and Development. 

When she’s not coding, Shyley is likely playing video games, watching anime, or hanging out at home with her two cats and four Chinese Fire Belly Newts. 

David Ellis, our new Integrations Developer, has been using software to solve difficult problems for more than 10 years. As an Engineering Scientist, he has unique insight into how computers see the world, and he specializes in systems integration with particular experience in email communication and marketing platforms. 

When he’s not encouraging machines to talk to one another, David can be found skiing and biking in the mountains of British Columbia. 

We are thrilled to add their skills to our development team. Welcome to Knak, Shyley and David! 

Tania Blake is Knak’s Marketing Manager, where she’s known for her strong attention to detail and unique ability to balance "process" with "getting stuff done". When she’s not juggling a million and one projects, you can find her cooking up a storm, doing yoga, or hanging out with her family.
