MATT LANGER

I’m the Director of Web Engineering at Giphy. Previously I was with The New York Times and before that I was at GroupMe and before that I was at Jumo and before that I was at Hot Potato and before that I was at Conduit Labs and also somewhere along the way I opened a coworking space in Brooklyn called The Makery.

In my mid-twenties I quit my first spell in the tech industry to spend four magical years studying philosophy at St. John’s College, where I wrote a thesis on Stéphane Mallarmé’s Crise de vers. I also spent the first three years after high school living out of the back of a pickup truck traveling North America; I've seen 48 US states and six Canadian provinces.

I’ve had writing appear on The Awl and Wonkette and Gizmodo. Other things can be found on my tumblr.
