Tung is a VP of Engineering at TripActions. After receiving his BS from UC Berkeley, he focused primarily on Computer Architectures and Virtualization before and after joining VMware. After four years with the company, he was brought on by Twitter as one of their first external engineering management hires and spent four years overseeing critical Platform initiatives. Since then, he consistently gravity toward early-stage companies in fascinating domains; from Commercial Real Estate to Travel. Tung began engineering management at an early stage of his career because of a simple obsession with the nuances of human interactions in a high-technical environment, especially at scale.

Sorry, I am not currently available for mentoring sessions.
