Google Open Source

The Google Open Source Peer Bonus winners were announced on Monday, October 3rd. There were a total of 141 winners over 36 countries that made the cut to impress Google.



Within those amazing winners, was our very own Senior Software Engineer, Jake Krog. Jake was recognized for his outstanding contributions to Firebase Apple SDK, which was made possible by his tenacity and amazing skillset as a software engineer.


“I am honored to be recognized for my contributions to the Firebase project. Open-source software is the backbone of modern software engineering, and like many others, I have benefited greatly from it over the course of my career. I’m very glad to have the opportunity to give back to the open-source community and hope to continue to do so in the future.”Jake Krog


MEDL could not be prouder of Jake Krog in this triumphant moment and we look forward to what our fellow MEDLHead does next with his future.


“Jake Krog has a special quality; he never gives up. Once his mind is made up, he does everything in his ability to get the work done. Impossible is possible with Jake and we are grateful to have him part of our team. Jake has made MEDL proud throughout the years and we are very excited to see what he accomplishes next.”MEDL
