Get to Know Kelsey

What made you want to become a Kitwarean? I’m ecstatic to work at a 100% employee-owned company that has built a business model on creating open source software. I have much respect for a company that prioritizes its quality product and its customers over profits.

What do you love most about what you do? I love working with cutting-edge technology and machine learning. I’m amazed at the innovation that humans can create and it motivates me to continue to do quality work every day.

Share something interesting about yourself that is not on your resume. I love being on wheels! My parents owned and operated a roller skating rink when I was in middle school so I grew up on skates. I enjoy riding my bicycle (custom-built Surly Cross Check) and hope to get a dual-sport motorcycle in the summer.
