At 24, MIT’s Technology Review listed him as one of the Top 35 under 35 Innovators for his contributions to search. Some of Vik’s major successes began while working at Google and Microsoft, both in research and products, where he helped ship Custom Search and XP SP2 Wireless. At MSR he worked with Turing Award winner Dr. Jim Gray, co-authoring a publication about the SkyServer. In addition to starting a business at the age of 27, Vik has filed 13 patents in the areas of search, social networking, systems, and content optimization. Vik graduated with a Bachelor's from the University of California, Berkeley in Computer Science.
