RECOMMENDATIONS


Steven Yee

VP Engineering

Not only Jason is a great technologist, he is a great team leader and team player. I was lucky to have a chance to work with Jason for more than 4 years at BSQUARE. He managed multiple large-scale projects and was never afraid to take on any challenges. Jason has incredible customer facing skills and has always became the trusted technology adviser for the customers on any project he worked on. Jason is a great guy to work with and brings a lot of positive energy to the office which is something I certainly miss :)


Barry Chu

VP Business Development


I have worked with Jason for over 2 years. Jason has been an exceptional talent and brings a multitude of capabilities to bear. He is an extremely talented technologist, has a keen analytical mind, and sound business sense. Jason is the consummate problem solver and independent thinker and has been at the forefront of resolving a number of different issues ranging from product issues to more mundane operational/logistical issues. He is highly recommended.


Sebastian Beresniewicz

Employee/SW Engineer


Jason is a very approachable and intelligent manager. He has exceptional organizational skills which I often observed made his teams run very smoothly. The best part about his abilities is he uses them in a very down-to-earth manner which makes him easy to work for.
