About Kaitlyn

Kaitlyn Hova is the Design Systems Tech Lead at Fast, co-founder of Hova Labs (creator of the award-winning Hovalin, a 3D-printable, open-source violin), and a Women Who Code advisor. Hova enjoyed a childhood performing around the world, training in music at Berklee before graduating from the University of Nebraska with a degree in Neuroscience.

A synesthete, Hova has incorporated this rare condition into every endeavor: speaking at TEDMED, UX design, composing music, and building The Synesthesia Network (front- and back-end) for other synesthetes to find each other (and allies to learn more about the condition).

The “entrepre-nerd” and all-around “superhuman” (FOX’s Superhuman TV show) is based in San Francisco, CA, and loves Figma so much every Holiday card is designed with it.
