Hey there! You’re reading my resume! This is me: ===> Ada Diana Avery <===. To contact me, send an electronic carrier pigeon to spam+jobs <at> squircle <dot> space (remove the spam+ prefix!).

I want to give people more control over their data and how it is used to help them live a more private life. I also enjoy exploring the design and implementation of programming languages!

I graduated from Harvey Mudd College in 2013 with a joint degree in computer science and mathematics.

I started working at Apple as a Software Engineer in 2013.

Professionally, I mostly work in C-family languages (C, C++, Objective-C) with the occasional scripting language thrown in (Python, Ruby, shell script), but in my free time I experiment in the dark arts of metaprogramming with Common Lisp! Behold the dark spells I have cast!


  1. Sadly, I can’t find a video of the presentation I did in 2014. Oh well.↩︎

  2. If you’re thinking “hey, what’s up with that? Why was Ada’s time as a manager so short?”, well, that’s a fair question! I had some stuff going on in my life in 2020, and I felt I needed to give myself a change of scenery.↩︎
