Yosep Kim is a seasoned software engineer who realized his love for teaching while working as a teaching assistant during his Master’s program in Computer Science. After graduation, Yosep moved to Atlanta where he worked at firms such as CareerBuilder.com, Snehta.com, Ebix, and MDdatacor. At Careerbuilder, Yosep spearheaded and led a program to teach his colleagues new programming languages and frameworks.
Since 2012, he's been living the sweet life of a startup entrepreneur running his very own Ruby on Rails consulting company, VentureBang Inc! Ever since, he's had a blast helping other startups with their websites, including mikeze.com, dumpsterrentalmadeeasy.com, app.thundrlizard.com, and healthysmartsmd.com. Ever ambitious and passionate about his work, he also has several pet projects going on, including a task manager for freelancers (dirtc.com), a site where you can vote between two rivals (votween.com), and an online job board for Koreans (kuiin.com).
Programmers don't spend every waking moment crunching code, though. In addition to spending his free time furthering the tech startup movement in the Gwinett area and volunteering his development skills to various non-profit organizations and Georgia Tech FlashPoint companies, Yosep loves to be active and is currently training for his first triathlon. He's also a rock star in-training, and spends time playing guitar and singing. When he's not out on the trails, saving the world one website at a time, or jamming, he's a family man who loves to spend time with his pregnant wife and his adorable 2.5-year old son.
