Got this from Kiip founder Brian Wong on Google+, if memory serves. He’s one of the most brilliant people I’ve ever met, with the ability to see the long-term effects of decisions. If I were going to work for any barely post-pubescent startup guy from Vancouver, it would be him. They’re also hiring a number of interns and some design contract workers.
