ClickSwitch Holdings Inc. for the past two years has signed up about 325 banks, credit unions and alternative financial firms to use a service it developed — a combination of software backed by a human service bureau — that lets their new customers move their entire banking relationship with the click of a mouse button or tap on a screen.”

The CTO: Killian Brackey, Sezzle

How long have you been working in tech for and what is your technical background?

I have been a tech hobbyist and enthusiast since the first time I got my hands on a personal computer.
