Hi! I’m Yan-Yin Choy, a software engineer with a focus on user-centered design and product development. I’m a versatile leader that values team work, problem solving and results. My mission is to leverage technology to make the world a better place.
At Caravan Studios, I manage product development. I also collaborate with engineers in Brazil to develop an open source web portal for librarians to manage data on recycling facilities. As Captain of Code for San José, I use technology to bridge the gap between the public and government. Here, I led a team to launch a web app, Renter’s Rights Guide.
As a former nonprofit manager, I facilitated product development, programs and interns. As Director of New Leaders Council Silicon Valley, I executed fundraising strategy and leadership development for young leaders. I graduated from San José State University and General Assembly. When I’m not coding, I enjoy hiking, dancing and art.
