Ryan Tanner

Software Developer

I'm a software engineer in the data products division of Twitter in Boulder. My tech interests are functional programming with Scala and distributed systems.

Prior to joining Twitter I was the first hire at exciting TechStars graduate Conspire. When I'm not coding, I travel and hike. Most recently I returned from jaunting across the Pacific to Hong Kong, Hanoi, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo.
