Clayton Schroeder

BMgt

Clayton is a web-developer at Compass tasked with developing custom web-based applications. Traditionally these types of tools would be made in programs such as Excel or completed in facilitated sessions. By recreating these tools online, it becomes easier to reach a wider audience, and enhance the user experience.

Clayton holds a Bachelors Degree in Business Management from UBC Okanagan, where he specialized in financial and managerial accounting before entering the web-development program at Lighthouse Labs.

Clayton is passionate about learning new web technologies and helping others learn about web development. In his spare time, he has volunteered at “learn-to-code” workshops where people with little or no coding experience build their own websites from scratch.

In Clayton’s latest project, he will work with the Compass team to build an online tool to help moderate the Structured Decision Making process. This tool will allow teams to collaborate remotely and in person to help bring clarity and understanding to all types of decisions.
