We’re very happy to announce that Kevin Barrett is now a partner at Postlight.
Kevin has been a standout leader in our engineering group for years, helping to define and uphold the values of quality and empathy that guide the team. Kevin’s technical chops and professional service instincts exemplify how Postlight brings thoughtful engineering expertise to our clients.
Beyond his technical architecture and programming abilities, Kevin is an extraordinary communicator. He is a novelist and storyteller who can explain complex technical issues in clear, practical terms to our clients and internal teams. His code reviews are so detailed, educational, and well written that we’ve inducted one into our Hall of Fame — we include it as required reading when we onboard new engineers!
Before Postlight, Kevin worked as a mobile developer in the early days of the App Store and founded a mobile development company. He consulted with several organizations and helped them ship mobile apps on iOS and launched an anonymous social network called Airendipity. Read about what he learned from that experience here.
As Postlight’s engineering team expands in both size and technical capabilities, we’re thrilled to have Kevin’s leadership, thoughtfulness, and pragmatism as we scale.
Postlight is a team of creative people working together to design and build great digital products — and we’re always looking for talented people to join the team.
