Jeremy is a senior software engineer in the Algorithms Engineering group at Netflix, where he works on building machine learning applications and libraries. As a longtime Scala enthusiast, Jeremy also works to evangelise functional programming techniques and type level approaches. He is active in the open source Scala community, and makes a regular hobby of asking and answering questions on Gitter, contributing to open source projects, and maintaining a few (with varying degrees of success).
