Stikine Software was founded in 2007. The word “Stikine” (pronounced sti-keen) comes from the breathtaking Stikine River, a wild, rugged river that begins in British Columbia, Canada, and wends 180 miles before emptying in Southeast Alaska.

The company name reflects two of the founder’s favorite things: from the past, memories of running the Stikine River; and from the present, software programming. Yes, he’s pretty much a code monkey.
