Hi there 👋I'm Jake Rullman
Systems Development Engineer at Amazon Web Services
I'm an engineer living in Seattle, Washington.
From a young age, I have been incredibly passionate about technology and how it can help others.
In lieu of college, I joined Amazon Web Services when I was nineteen. In the past six years, I have worked on several products, including AWS Lambda, Amazon EC2, and now AWS Outposts.
Outside of work, I try to find time for not-for-profit endeavors, primarily tackling internet censorship. By developing freely accessible networks and software, people worldwide — including those in China, Iran, Syria, and Saudi Arabia — are able to circumvent the repressive governments that seek to silence them by restricting their fundamental right to access the open internet.
I was a Google Glass Explorer (remember those?) and worked on a number of projects ranging from creating apps for assisting the deaf and hearing-impaired to developing systems designed for the U.S. Military.
My hobbies are always changing and evolving, but it's safe to say that many of them tend to involve voiding warranties.
I'm an optimist, accelerationist, and believer in American Dynamism 🇺🇸
