“I worked under Vuong's leadership on several projects and I highly recommend him! He is an excellent professional, as an engineer, as a product manager, and I've really enjoyed working with him. He has the right mix of technical and social skills that are difficult to find. His creative/productive experience gives him an ability to clearly direction, set realistic goals, and brainstorm solutions. He's personable, honest and flexible. I wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.

“Vuong is one of the most hard-working, focused, talented, smart, creative, and detailed people that I know. He is an all-in-one package (developer, designer, marketer, and manager). He is very reliable and likes to think outside of the box. He's dedicated to his work and is always willing to go an extra mile to get job done in time. I would gladly recommend Vuong as he would be an excellent contributor for any company.

“Vuong was brought onto the team during a time of high-volume and heavy external pressure. Despite the fast-paced, demanding, learn-as-you-go nature of the work, he hit the ground running with optimism and maintained that energy throughout his tenure. He has a “let’s give it a try” mindset, and worked intra-department to assess and fulfill the requests coming in from multiple directions and parties. Vuong constantly impressed me with his ability to maintain a calm and patient attitude, all while being open to comment and critique from peers in and out of his department. He on-boards the need, asks the questions needed to fulfill the request, and is always looking for new challenges and ways to get things done. He’s a listener, a learner, a doer, and the best kind of team player.
