Derrick Ko: New Kicksend Team Member

We’re ecstatic to announce that we added a new product engineer to the Kicksend team: Derrick Ko


Derrick’s a stellar engineer who previously worked at Pivotal Labs. Derrick also started Startup Roots Singapore, and previously created Bartop & At Kicksend, he’ll be working directly on our web application and our realtime backend.

We met Derrick at coffee shop in downtown Mountain View for a lengthy chat. During the course of this conversation, we quickly realized that he possessed the carefully honed technical chops and the always-curious personality that marks a very talented early-stage product engineer. We’re really happy to have him work on our web product full-time, and are very excited to see what he comes up with.


You can follow him on Twitter here and read his blog here. Derrick plays soccer & squash, likes to travel and is a student of design. We were really happy to discover that he’s as much of a foodie as the rest of the team, which bodes well for our team lunches :)
