Kelvin Koon

Hi, I'm Kelvin! I'm currently a Software Development Engineer at Amazon working on threat orchestration and response solutions. I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a B.A.Sc in Electrical Engineering. Currently, I'm based in Toronto, Canada.

Keenly interested in cloud infrastructure, distributed systems, and robotics. My past experiences include working on 5G router validation at Netgear, database platform tooling at AWS, and simulation infrastructure at Tesla. On the side, I'm building Statsugiri, a competitive Pokémon data platform.

During my studies, I worked on autonomous soccer playing robots with UBC Thunderbots. I was also deeply involved with UBC ECESS and UBC IEEE through mentorship, treasury, and outreach. You can read more about my time at UBC here.

Unabashedly excited about tackling novel problems, increasing STEM accessibility, and building a better tomorrow. There's so much to explore, I don't know if I'll ever stop - or want to stop - wondering who I want to be. Beyond work, you'll find me crushing at the bouldering gym, exploring movement through dance and figure skating, or taking event photos for Frame1 Photography.
