Hi! I’m Evan Broder, and I live in San Francisco.
I’m currently taking a break from work, but prior to that I spent a bit over 9 years working for Stripe as an engineer on systems and infrastructure. In the past, I worked at MokaFive, helping build desktop virtualization technology for large, enterprise IT organizations; and Ksplice, building their AWS-based kernel build system to apply kernel updates without reboots. I’ve also worked on the Ubuntu project as a member of the Ubuntu Core Development team and Ubuntu Backporters team.
While I was in college, I was part of the initial development team for XVM, offering VM hosting to the MIT student community before cloud computing was cool. I also helped deploy Debathena as the desktop environment for MIT’s 250-node public computing cluster.
When I’m not computering, I’m probably cooking, home-bartending, or traveling.
