Derek Zimmer Departing VikingVPN

Hello to all of my friends, readers, and most of all our VikingVPN customers.

It has been a long journey. From when my partners and I founded VikingVPN years ago, to the thriving company that we have clawed together from the mud. I have toiled year after year on Viking, between research, working with the Reddit community, maintaining the systems, writing for the blogs, and personally answering every single customer support ticket.

Throughout the years, I have expanded the roles of my career and sought new ways to help the community. The largest of these projects was the Open Source Technology Improvement Fund, which is rapidly transforming into a powerful force for good in the open source world. This pushed me from my more comfortable roles of doing research and systems work to more extroverted roles like sales, marketing, project management, and community management. This included working closely with dozens of other companies and coordinating getting groups that were traditionally competitors to work together toward common goals.
