Who is Clint?

Hi there! My name is Clint Ecker and I'm currently living in New York City!

I'm a software developer by trade (work history) but I went to school in West Lafayette, Indiana at Purdue University. While there I majored in Computer Engineering with a focus on Electrical Engineering.

I was born in Wichita, Kansas and lived there until I went to university. After Purdue I lived in Cincinnati, Ohio for a while, then spent a good decade of my life living in Chicago, Illinois.

Chicago was the place where I really blossomed into the engineer I am today. For many of my years in Chicago I worked remotely for Ars Technica which had just been acquired by Condé Nast—a large magazine publisher.

In 2017 I moved to New York City and transferred to Venmo as a Senior Engineer. I eventually helped to found the Software Architecture department and did a significant amount of work as a Senior Systems Architect responsible for the entire API and Identity platforms. In late 2019 I resigned and continue to be purposefully and happily unemployed!


Professional Life

As of October 2019 I am unemployed and not looking to do any kind of work for anyone.

In addition to the above professional positions, I have also worked in the advertising industry as a software developer, as an RF Engineer for a major American cell phone network, an Editor, Journalist, Photographer, Party Planner, Dishwasher, Security Guard, Cashier, and Garden Shop employee.
