Ian Obermiller is a software engineer at Facebook and a hobby open source developer. Ian, his wife Olivia, his son Wellington, and his daughter Isla live in Renton, Washington.
Before Facebook, I worked at Microsoft for 4 years, in teams ranging from AdCenter to FUSE Labs. At FUSE I was implementing and researching new and awesome ways to make computers more social, since people are really the most essential and basic concept in computing.
In pursuit of continual learning I earned my master’s in computer science from the University of Washington via the PMP. The courses were awesome and relevant to work, in addition to being fast paced and intense.
I graduated summa cum laude from Marquette University with an Honors Bachelors degree in Computer Science. In addition to taking a full load of credits and coding on the side as a web developer, I also worked in the Ubicomp Lab, focusing on wireless, pervasive computing.
When I am not on the computer for work related activities I enjoy reading Hacker News, coding various utilities, open source programming, and learning new programming languages and techniques. Outside of the digital world, I love spending every waking moment with my beautiful wife and my two children, snowboarding, reading, cooking, watching TV & movies, and occasionally (not really) hitting the gym.
