Steve Ly, Director of Software Development

Steve is a natural problem solver. As the Director of Software Development, he leads a group of talented developers to solve complex problems using simple technological solutions. While a big part of his role is mentoring, he isn’t afraid to get into the trenches and code alongside his team members. Steve is heavily involved in the development aspect of projects and played a supporting role in preparing the authentication system for the massive Pokémon GO launch.

Steve has not one but two bachelor degrees, the first in Medical Laboratory Sciences from the University of British Columbia, and the second in Computer Science from Simon Fraser University. He’s been with OpenRoad for over 15 years and has worked on projects for a variety of industries including real estate, government, entertainment, and healthcare.

When he’s not mentoring or coding, Steve hangs out with his kids, reads fantasy and science fiction books, has the “occasional” Netflix binge, and loves cooking a good steak on the BBQ in summer.
