Meet Derek Meyer, Director of Engineering

What do you do at Commerce Sync?

I manage our development team as well as provide technical oversight for our Commerce Sync product. I also work closely with our Operations team to make sure both our developers and operations team have the tools and information they need to be successful.

What is your favorite thing about working here?

The people. Everyone is incredibly intelligent and I learn a lot from my coworkers on a daily basis. I love that everyone is invested in the company – it’s great to have a mutual cause to rally around and come together on.

Tell us something unique about yourself.

In Junior High I was a sprinter and won medals at our State Track & Field event in the 100 and 200 meters.

What’s your favorite Denver neighborhood?

The Baker neighborhood is great. It combines all the best quality of a great neighborhood - good shopping and delicious restaurants. One of my favorite restaurants there is The Hornet.

Which mobile app do you use the most?

I use Flowdock the most. It’s an internal collaboration tool that we use so everyone on the team can chat and stay up-to-date on our current projects.

What would you sing at karaoke night?

Sir Mix-a-Lot – Baby Got Back

What’s the best vacation you’ve ever been on?

As a teenager, I was able to travel to Tokyo and Singapore for two weeks with my grandfather. He worked for the University of Minnesota as a research professor and was going there to present his research and findings (he discovered the link between gum disease and heart disease). The entire experience was amazing – I really enjoyed being immersed in the culture and the cuisine was definitely enjoyable.
