The Gearsite team came together in 2013 when our founder, Ervin, and his mentee, Cole, decided that they wanted to open a web design business. The pair didn’t know much about web development, but had a strong background in graphic design and other general areas. They decided to learn what they could about creating websites. After many late nights learning and collaborating in a basement, they eventually acquired the skills to build the websites and apps they had imagined. They were fueled by the excitement and passion of being able to craft something wonderful from just a few lines of code. The team furthered their design skills and coding abilities with each passing client. After several years of experience working with small to medium sized businesses, they had eventually gotten around to moving out of the basement workshop, and into the office they have today, located in downtown Waterloo.
