Hi there 👋I'm Jake Rullman
Systems Development Engineer at Amazon Web Services
I'm a 25 year old engineer living in Seattle, Washington.
From a young age, I have been incredibly passionate about technology and how it can help others — I created my first LLC when I was 13 years old and my non-profit at 16.
Instead of attending college, I decided to join Amazon Web Services. Throughout the past 5 years, I have worked on several products, including AWS Lambda, Amazon EC2, and now AWS Outposts.
When I find the time outside of my work, I dedicate myself to my 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 volunteer and contribute to several open-source and community projects.
I was a Google Glass Explorer, 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.
