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.
I’m currently pursuing my master’s in computer science from the University of Washington via the PMP. The courses are awesome, if a bit 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 Olivia and my awesome son Wellington, snowboarding, reading, cooking, watching TV & movies, and occasionally hitting the gym.
