Daniel Carmo

Mobile Developer

“My favorite part of the job is taking a project through all stages of development. (Planning, Alpha, Beta, Release).”

Daniel has been a part of the SpeakFeel team for over 3 years. He came to us as a co-op student from the University of Guelph and has grown with us as a mobile developer. He is platform-agnostic (like the rest of our developers) and understands the connection between cloud, data and device. Daniel likes to build on existing code. He has developed some proprietary pieces for SpeakFeel and is always keen to learn. While he is a developer by nature, he is also excellent at communicating with our clients and explaining how things work.

Daniel graduated with Honors from University of Guelph in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Technology – Physics and Technology. He enjoys riding his motorbike and hanging out with his dogs and family at his new home in Guelph.
