Hi, I'm Rico Zuñiga. I lead productive technical teams.

For 17 years, I've been helping startups and established companies turn ideas into engaging digital products and experiences.

I lead teams in launching games, edutech, fintech, e-commerce, and blockchain projects using diverse frameworks, processes and tools.

Our latest products include a cryptocurrency wallet that supports BTC, ETH, BNB, SRK, and other tokens and a food delivery app with cryptocurrency rewards.

“Rico's passion and dedication to his craft is an inspiration to our team. He offers a wide range of knowledge, interest and exposure in online technology. He is a hard worker and a very responsible employee. His strong desire for continuous growth on his skill set and knowledge is truly impressive.”

I engage developer communities.

I co-founded Bicol IT in 2013, an IT education advocacy nonprofit. We conduct trainings and seminars for our 5,000+ members.

Our Tech Talks, meetups, and other events have attracted thousands of participants from all over the Bicol region.

We partner with schools, companies, LGUs, and global brands including Google for I/O Extended and Techstars for the Global Startup Weekend.

Continuous improvement and sharing knowledge.

I continuously update my skills and teach what I learn. I've earned design thinking, marketing, leadership, and product management certificates.

Some of my favorites are ConsenSys Blockchain Developer Bootcamp, Intro to Digital Currencies, and Learning How to Learn.

My talks on coding, entrepreneurship, and blockchain have reached hundreds of students, academics, and professionals.

Aside from speaking, I've also written tutorials on Game Development with Swift and C++ mobile app development in iOS and Android.

Continuous improvement and sharing knowledge.

I launch innovative products.

Full stack product development from ideation, prototyping, validation, design, funding, coding, project management, marketing, to scaling and acquisition.

In 2003, I launched Tong-its, one of the first computer games made in the Philippines. I relaunched the game commercially in 2008 and was eventually acquired.

In 2016, I launched Hoppy, a CPA review chatbot. It was accepted into Facebook's FbStart program and is now part of iCPA helping thousands of students.

Recently, our team created a 3D solitaire game which won 13th place out of 100+ entries in Decentraland Game Jam.

“I really have to say that beyond the intuitive drag-and-drop interface, I loved playing with the AI. It was very challenging (though after several dozen rounds, I kinda got to know how the two other players cook their strategy that I’ve been able to predict when they will draw). But you guys have to try this. Props to Rico for a job well done.”
