Owein Reese

New York City


Owein is the Director of Creatives Engineering at MediaMath, an adtech company. His teams have built systems in Scala and Python which handle over 1M req/s with under 10ms latency daily. Originally starting out as a mathematical programmer working in infrared countermeasures, he moved on to become a full fledged software developer involved first with NASA satellite systems and then with hedge fund analytics. Since discovering the joys of functional programming, he’s looked for ways to incorporate higher powered abstractions in all the code he writes, when he gets to write code.
