Derek J. Kinsman is a maker of things residing in Guelph, ON, Canada. Sometimes those Things require code, sometimes power tools and hand tools, usually it's for other people, and often it's done with others. Derek specialises in radical generalism (thanks for the term Sara Hendren), has a keen focus on ethics in technology (thanks to the Eyeo Festival community), and is more concerned with the Things we make, and why we make them over how do we make them. While he deeply enjoys the proof of life stage of a project, he's just as comfortable doing research, fixing & logging bugs, writing documentation, making flowcharts, and writing code.
Currently, Derek is looking for remote opportunities working in digital product design in a technical capacity (in office and/or partial remote located if in the Waterloo—Toronto corridor). He most recently worked with the mighty fine folks at Siberia, and Teehan+Lax — on the Labs team — prior to that.
Much of the work he has been involved with in recent years was completed under NDA. Previous clients come from a diverse set of industries including social impact, music production, active apparel & high fashion, telecommunications, smart home, home automation, home security, automotive, advertising, wellness & fitness, healthcare, and medical marijuana.
