Employee Spotlight

Jonathan Callan

Systems Architect

I’m the son of a famous musician and an army officer. My mom studied veterinary right after Army graduation and oversaw the Chilean Cavalry horses. My father became a famous musician as he was the Arts Director for EMI records for a long time. So I grew up meeting many famous musicians. My father composed well-known songs and received National Arts Prize, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond disks.

I was born in Chile and left before being a year old. I lived in seven countries and learned many cultural ways and languages. My experience living across countries helped me a lot to be or feel awkward since what is culturally suitable in one place is wrong in the other. That was me until I was embraced by the Canadian culture, which gave me a place and chance to be who I am.

I studied Computer Science in Chile while working in the Criminology department at the Chilean Military Police. I put fourteen years of military life across Navy and Police Criminology. The only fanciness about being cannon fodder is unreasonable TV glorification.

Right after graduating with two full degrees in Computer Science, I applied for Canadian and Australian residences and found a job in Australia in 2000. I lived there until 2005 when they decided to sell the company, and everybody was laid off. I started searching for opportunities and found one at HighJump in the US. I started doing WMS in late 2005. I moved to Ohio in 2007 to a HJ implementer, but due to the economic meltdown, we lost jobs and my immigration status again. My Canadian PR status kicked right in time, so I crossed the border in 2007, and ever since, Canada has been my home.

I was raised to be Canadian since my dad wanted to come to Canada, but, he met my dear mother. They were married for sixty-six years. Dad decided to “raise me to be Canadian,” in his words. I learned Canadian History, English, and French and loudly sang O Canada since a toddler. Being born and living elsewhere is just a circumstance. I’m a die-hard Canadian.
