Steve McKinney

I’m a software developer in Washington, DC. I work at Vox Media developing publishing platforms and applications for SB Nation, The Verge, and Polygon.

My recent projects include: pomo, a Pomodoro CLI app in Ruby; and dochub.vim, a Vim plugin to jump to documentation.


Until recently, I was a Technology Lead at Threespot. Clients included MacArthur Foundation, Peace Corps, World Bank, Brookings Institution, Duke University, Nuclear Threat Initiative, and Starwood Hotels. Prior to joining Threespot, I developed web applications for HealthCenteral, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman.

I received my Bachelors of Science in Computer Engineering with University Honors Citation and was a Banneker-Key Scholar of the University of Maryland. Meantime, in between time, I am a habitual snowboarder, cyclist, sneaker junkie, user experience nut, loser art enthusiast, and can strum a mean guitar.
