Yikai Peng joined the Circuit Media Creative team as our new Web Developer and Data Analyst on December 1. In her new role, Yikai will be taking on both frontend and backend website development work for our design team, while assisting our accessibility team in web remediation and digital accessibility.
A recent graduate from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor’s in Computer Science, Yikai worked in digital accessibility before joining Circuit Media. She completed her internship at COLAS as a data engineer. While exploring the field of digital accessibility, she found a passion for the work — opening digital doors for people with disabilities. Yikai worked with Circuit Media’s sustainability team as a student, developing our Chrome extension BrainBrake, which gives periodic health recommendations for anyone working at a computer for extended periods.
Yikai is excited to be working with her new team, and finds the culture at Circuit Media to be supportive of both her long- and short-term goals. She finds coding and web development to be both adaptable and fun, saying that the best part of the field is “seeing her results instantly after you finish coding.”
After earning her degree, Yikai moved to Seattle, where she enjoys the climate and the culture. She speaks both fluent Mandarin and Cantonese.
Welcome to the team, Yikai!
