Senior Software Engineer
After graduating with a degree in physics from Mount Allison University in Canada, Jacob spent several years working as a geophysicist, collecting data on mountains and glaciers in Alaska and the Yukon. He somehow found his way out of the mountains and made a career transition to software development, working in Toronto and Virginia before he and his wife landed in New York City. Jacob enjoys learning new technologies and using them to solve meaningful problems. In his spare time he jogs, meditates and attempts to fly a kite in Prospect Park, so far with limited success.
If Jacob could choose 3 famous best friends they would be: Carl Sagan, Carrie Brownstein and Dennis Ritchie.
