Kevin Owocki – Open Source Forward at Gitcoin

Kevin’s work has been featured in TechCrunch, CNN, Inc Magazine, The New York Times, BoingBoing, WIRED, Forbes, and TechDigest.

At StepOut (acquired by IAC), I built a team of 9 that built our web product and mobile product.

At Simple Energy, I built a team of 24 that rewrote our core platforms and shipped dozens of new features to our utility customers.

At Occipital, I was the #1 speed chess player in the office and also did lots of python/django/datawarehouse and management things.

Now I’m pushing Open Source Forward at Gitcoin — The worlds biggest Ethereum-based network for incentivizing Open Source Contributions.
