Our Story

We started Maxogram as a small group of entrepreneurs from the Western Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. We had a vision to take a marketing-first approach when marrying traditional advertising practises and cutting-edge technology in order to improve communication in a way that vastly benefits the user's experience and the marketer's presentation. We strive to achieve two things: (1) make our user's and marketer's lives easier and (2) use a heart-led approach when building the company. Our tight-knit and ever expanding team of marketers, developers, investors, and thinkers keep pushing Maxogram upwards and onwards, and we continue to deliver game-changing content and innovations!

Matthew Jensen

Founder & CEO

An entrepreneur since the nineties, a lifelong creative and student of marketing and technology, Matthew Jensen is a dreamer of the highest order. Described in a myriad of terms by friends and family as the genuine article and the salt of the earth, Matthew relishes any opportunity to plumb the depths of marketing psychology; specifically for the reclamation of that ever sought after yet ever fleeting commodity: time. Not just time for the sake of time, but "to help people enjoy doing what they need, so they can get back to doing what they want." This is just a small window into the passion that drives him in all facets of his personal and professional relationships. Jensen strives to put love & communication at the forefront of all he does; someone who truly gives a damn.

Such is the case with Maxogram, Jensen's brainchild, vision, and labour of love. Developed with the help of a rapidly growing team of professionals, experts, and staunch believers, Maxogram, which has been described as lighting in a bottle, is an exciting breakthrough in information and communication technology that makes giving and getting any kind of information on demand not only easy, but a fun and beautiful experience.

Christine Shaffer

Co-Founder & Lead Developer

Christine Shaffer is the lead developer behind Maxogram. After viewing Matthew's vision for Maxogram she was eager to jump on board and help make it a reality. A quiet person by nature, numbers have always made more sense to Christine than almost anything else. She relishes in a good problem, or learning about any random topic. This is why Maxogram, a learning venture in marketing, business, technology, and problem-solving, is the perfect fit. Most of the time you can find Christine lost in code, but she’s always willing to make time for family, friends, animals, and a good old-fashioned debate.

When he's not making deals he enjoys spending his free time with his daughter and motocross racing.
