Jon studied at New York University with no plans to become a developer. After graduating, he started tinkering around with a side project that eventually turned into a viral software company. This overnight success brought tons of attention from the developer community—including a member of leadership at Stack Overflow. Two weeks after getting an email invitation to interview, Jon joined the team.
Jon begins his work days at home by checking email and running through updates until noon. Then he heads into the office and spends the remainder of the day doing maintenance, coding, or attending meetings. He also lends a hand on special projects or marketing campaigns—like the annual Stack Overflow survey, which showcases the development community’s diversity through data.
