If Jin-eon had lived during the Renaissance, his name would have been Leonardo. He is a masterpiece creator. Except, instead of sculpting, painting and wielding kitana blades, Jin-eon codes servers, Android/iOS apps and websites. He is a King of all Trades - his servers and apps have millions of users and his websites can perform double backflips into flaming hoops held by well-educated tigers. He graduated from Inha University with a major in Computer Engineering. When he joined our team at Slidejoy, he began a new phase of his life, Enlightenment.

Robert is responsible for business development and introducing our amazing product to the world. While studying as an undergraduate, he ran away and joined the US Marine Corps. He served at the vanguard during the initial push for Baghdad with a light armored reconnaissance unit in 2003. After completing his service, he received a BA in Economics and a minor in Mathematics at the University of Maryland. Robert then found himself on the dark side as an investment banking analyst at UBS. After a few years, he went native (or as they say, nativo) and spent a year in Colombia and Ecuador honing his Español and training for an Ironman Triathlon (which he completed in Brazil). He then had a stint with Goldman Sachs Principal Strategies investing in various industries and diverse geographies. For his MBA at the Wharton School, he triple majored in Entrepreneurial Management, Finance and Hustling (Everyday). If you're not careful, he will use his rugged good looks and irresistible charm with no mercy to disarm you. He is passionate about empowering others and in his free time practices discretion, modesty and free-writing in the 3rd person.
You could say that Ilya is a natural born-seller, but that would be misleading since he’s the one who actually convinced his mother to have him in the first place - real go-getter huh?! He started at the crisp age of 13, stopping people on the street to sell t-shirts for his friend’s clothing store. Then he moved on to the big leagues - getting subscriptions and delivering newspapers, following in the footsteps of people like Diddy, Walt Disney and Warren Buffet (many will say the 4 of them are a lot alike). At Baruch College he fell in love with his major, Digital Marketing, but alas, it wasn’t to last. The budding romance was nipped when he worked as a sales rep for a technology training company where he became a top seller at the firm within his first year. However, he was reunited with his love when he moved over to Xaxis, learning the programmatic side of the business before joining Slidejoy to help advertisers find a better mobile solution. Needless to say, he’s been living happily ever after since.
Hovan has been an Android developer since its inception and we think he is more familiar with Android than he is with his wife. He currently leads the client side of the product.

He studied Electrical Engineering and Business Administration at Seoul National University.
“The Dr.” is Slidejoy’s secret weapon. He walked into the International Physics Olympiad one year, daydreamed for a while and walked out with a Bronze Medal. He holds a PhD from a fairly reputable university named after Leland Stanford Jr. He created Slidejoy’s proprietary machine learning algorithm, which has since developed a mind of its own.
