For a full understanding of how we think about our systems, solutions, and software, come along with us into Physics Geek Land for just a moment.
We named our company after a physics term: “bound state” describes a situation in which a particle acts on another in such a way that the second particle becomes stable. A really simple example of a bound state is your run-of-the-mill hydrogen atom. A proton and electron move separately, excitedly, unconnected. When the electron starts to orbit the proton, they create a bound state: hydrogen.
Separately, they are unstable. Together, they become stable. They work together. That’s why we named our company after this bit of physics geekery. We create systems that work with others to function at a higher level. We create stability and efficiency. We create fundamental states of being that work reliably under all circumstances. We create a state of simplicity that is easy to understand and interact with.
Before co-founding Bound State, Martin was a systems analyst at a local software consulting firm, where he successfully helped design solutions to improve small and medium businesses. He learned a lot, but he had his own ideas about how he wanted to approach his relationship with customers, and he banded together with a fellow tech devotee to create a company that fit the vision we just described above.
Martin was born in Argentina, educated at UBC, and probably spends a little too much of his free time watching movie trailers. He speaks both Spanish and English fluently, and enjoys cooking, soccer, and tennis.
Before Bound State, Mike learned quite a lot about the trials and tribulations of freelance life. He worked his way through UNBC as a freelance web developer, and went on to become the lead developer at a local software company in Vancouver. When the excitement of helping that company succeed wore off, he teamed up with Martin to try out entrepreneurship. A thrill-seeker at heart, Mike’s the one who gets excited about the impossible challenges our clients regularly put in front of us
Mike loves anything to do with the outdoors, so you’ll often find him out hiking, running, swimming, or going on some other crazy adventure. In his tamer moments, he enjoys ballroom dancing.
