I've been working under Derek for the past 7 months. He's been very instrumental in the growth of LinkedIn's Recruiter product. A born leade ... r, strives perfection, very resourceful, thoughtful of his peers and doesn't shy from taking risks. Above all, likes to have fun!

Derek has an ability to manage both the success of his co-workers as well as the product he is creating. He can make the tough choices that ... result in the correct balance between product and people, members and developers, risk and security. Not just a solid leader, he is also a developer with vision and the skills to get the job done.

Eric Poirier
We worked together  •  CEO, Addepar. Previously Director, Palantir Technologies.
Derek inspires everyone around him. He's a brilliant software engineer and leader of technical talent. One thing that sets him apart is that ... he intuitively understands the strengths and interests of people with whom he works. Given that context, he puts people in a position to make a big impact, and makes himself available as a mentor and sounding board. It's clear that Derek cares deeply about people and results, and he strikes a remarkable balance between these sometimes-conflicting dimensions. This makes him an extraordinary entrepreneur and leader of the most demanding talent.

Cody Coats
We worked together  •  Associate Web Developer, LinkedIn. Previously Student Aide, New York University. NYU grad.
Cody is an extremely passionate individual, always keeping his end-user in mind. He's opinionated in the best of ways, thinking of the ins-a ... nd-outs of the decision at hand, then communicating that to the appropriate stakeholders. Driven towards perfection, everything he produces is golden and deserving of having been shipped. He'd be a great asset on anyone's team.
