About

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.

Facebook

I work in the Facebook Seattle office, with amazing views of the city and Puget Sound. I’m currently deep into front-end work, designing a new UI for Atlas using React.

Prior

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.

Education

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.

For Fun

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.
