Ian is a software engineer on the Public Data team at Recidiviz. Previously he was a data visualization engineer at SurveyMonkey and a software engineer at Comfy, a workplace technology startup; before that he was a newspaper and magazine journalist. He embraces the challenge of making arcane systems more accessible, whether interpreting postmodern art for the readers of a small-town newspaper or controlling pre-internet HVAC hardware from a web browser. Topics that you Should Not Get Him Started On include digital rights management, bagels, and Ursula K. LeGuin. He received a B.A. in American culture from Vassar College and a master’s in information management from UC Berkeley.
A diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace is essential to our mission. People come to Recidiviz to contribute to an urgent cause, and to work alongside incredible coworkers who care as much as they do. To ensure that we’re building intentional products and amplifying the work of others in the reform ecosystem, we are committed to fostering a diverse team that reflects the people we serve.
We combine the efficiency of a tech company with the heart of a non-profit. Recidiviz began as a volunteer project at Google and has since grown into one of the brightest, kindest teams that civic tech has to offer. Our north star: safely and fairly shrinking the criminal justice system.
