Ian works with the Mapbox engineering team, where he focuses on managing performance, stability, availability, and security across our cloud infrastructure.

Prior to Mapbox, Ian co-founded Development Seed in 2003, where he was involved in everything from business and project management to code development and system administration. Ian began seriously developing on the web in the late 1990’s, and his work spans supporting small NGOs in Peru to helping the U.S. Department of Education and the World Bank create and release open source code.

As an undergraduate and graduate student at American University and Depaul University, Ian studied international relations, international development, and computer science.
