Part of the Team

When Stephen Lind was a student at the University of Alberta, he thought of Information Services and Technology (IST)—then AICT—as the place to go “for password resets and other things,” a department with more day-to-day IT work and not much, if any, IT development. But as Stephen has discovered since joining IST as a Junior Application Developer, the department does a lot of application development and “has quite an interesting development team.”

Stephen has always been interested in IT, specifically computers which he got into by playing computer games as a kid. After graduating from the university with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry, he worked as a personal banker for RBC. He then made a career change and developed video games for Bioware, working on the Mass Effect Series. Stephen also returned to school and graduated with an after-degree in Computing Science and History from MacEwan University.

Now, as a member of IST’s Application Development team, Stephen helps develop IT applications for the university as a whole and for individual faculties and departments. He is currently working on a project for the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, supporting long-term research into women’s health in metalworking and electrical research. Stephen enjoys working with the Application Development team, “a pretty tight-knit group,” and looks forward to growing his talents within IST.
