Jirtz has his CPA and received a Masters in Public Administration from the Ateneo de Davao University, in the Philippines. After university, he worked as the Local Treasury Operations Officer for the Island Garden City of Samal before deciding to leave the white beaches and warm weather in search of the greener (and wetter) pastures of Vancouver. He emigrated with his wife from the Philippines in 2008 and joined dPoint Technologies a year later. Jirtz was given the chance to work at dPoint as a part-time production worker before being hired full-time as the company’s sole accountant.
As one of the longer serving employees, Jirtz is thankful to have been given the chance to do something he’s passionate about and be part of one of the fastest growing companies in Canada, the last three years.
