Hi there! My name is Omer. I’m a software engineer.
I’ve had a rather unorthodox career path. I got my first software development job straight out of high school, and worked as a software engineer from the mid-1990s until the mid-2000s. I then spent about 15 years as an academic linguist, all the while nurturing my techie skillset on the side. In 2022, I decided to resign my tenured position as a professor of linguistics and return to software engineering.
As of December 2023, I have joined ID.me as a Software Development Engineer IV.
