Ben Wagaman

Application Development Manager in Columbus, Ohio

Hello, I’m Ben. I grew up in Macungie, PA and went to Penn State University for Computer Science. After graduation, I lived in Kazakhstan for a year and then spent half a decade working for a non-profit organization developing media, social, technology, and leadership at a grass-roots level in the early Web 2.0 era.

In 2006 I learned Ruby on Rails, moved to Columbus, OH, then began a 10-year career at JPMorgan Chase, building and growing applications to enterprise quality and scale.

In my free time I play and coach soccer, buy, sell and build legos, fiddle with music and low-level tech (arduinos, etc..) and play with my 3 sons. I have a wonderful wife, Kelly, who keeps me sane and runs things at home.

I am never satisfied with yesterday's answers to today's problems and am eagerly looking at ways to radically simplify our lives through understanding the way we take in information and think.
