If you know one thing by now about Topcoder, it’s that we don’t stop experimenting and we’re always trying to make things better. With that, it’s our pleasure to announce to you that our Topcoder Members of the Month blog post will now feature a spiffy video as well!

We love shining a bright light on you, our community members, and we thought a video showcasing our top performers for the month would be a great way to do it.

Don’t worry, we’re not changing things up too much! We’re still going to feature 4 Topcoders with one from each major discipline – design, development, and data science – represented and an additional award going out to our rookie of the month!

May Topcoder Members of the Month


This month was particularly cool. Not only are we featuring members who crushed it during several competitions, we’ve also selected a Topcoder copilot who has done outstanding work and a Topcoder reviewer who won the praise of his peers and beyond. So, to the video we go!

If you see our winners in the Topcoder forums or on our Facebook page, please be sure to congratulate them! Watch the video above to see how they earned these top honors.

On what design projects he likes most:

“I think I’m good at overall design challenges because every challenges in Topcoder has their own difficulty, with the brief and deadline, but it really worth for the prize. For fact, UI/UX is not my design specialty, but when I found Topcoder website, it encourage me to learn about UI/UX world!”

On his long tenure as a Topcoder member:

“Not only have I been a member for over 11 years, but I’ve been an active member on the development side of Topcoder. In this period I’ve had different roles: competitor, reviewer and copilot…. What’s nice about Topcoder is the variety of technologies that are used and the variety of challenge types. One is free to specialize or to try new things.”
