Who is he?

Who’s Ian Atha, you ask? He’s still figuring that out.

My college advisor, Sam Rebelsky, wrote a whole essay about me!

I’m a technologist with a deep understanding of software and hardware, and an innate curiosity for security. Software is my art, but I’ve dabbled in other forms too.

I’m also what they call a serial entrepreneur—yikes! I think of it more like an addiction. Since age 17, I’ve started 3 software “startups” of my own, of varying degrees of success:

  • Mamabear.IO—funded by YCombinator,
  • Autma,
  • QLabs.

I’ve previously worked at very cool companies such as:

  • OpenAI
  • Gumroad
  • Box
  • Wealthfront
  • Yahoo!
  • Google

I believe in:

  • self-improvement 👦📈,
  • social justice and equal rights ⚖️, and
  • the power of love ❤️.
