Kaiyu Hsu

UX Engineer / Software Engineer / Designer / Manager / Ring Bearer

Hi there 👋 you can call me Kai since we’re pretty much friends now. I’m a UX Engineer which basically means I push around pixels and then convert it into code. Currently, I type things that make Amazon go.

Once upon a time

I was an early hire at Slyce (IPO: TSX-V), TinyRx (Google Ventures), Cardiogram (a16z), and Atrium (a16z). Some highlights include:
Before that, I helped start TEDxUofT as their Creative Director and later went on to join the TEDxToronto team. I’ve also had a short lived career in advertising as an Art Director for brands such as Volkswagen and ING Direct.
You’ll occasionally find me dabbling in the open source world, contributing to Facebook projects, Bootstrap, and Wikipedia. When I’m bored, I sometimes draw things, build apps, and design games. But honestly, I spend most of my days procrastinating.
