About · [Thinking inside a large box];


Hey there! My name is Benjamin Encz and I currently live in San Francisco. I moved here from Germany in 2013.

Currently I spend most of my time writing software, with a strong focus on iOS development. I’m working for PlanGrid where we are building software that makes the construction industry more efficient.

In the past I’ve been focused on building enterprise software & teaching software development. I’ve also worked for a year as a project manager and spent a decent amount of time with 2D and 3D graphics programming.

In 2015 I started to give talks at meetups and conferences and I’ve recently blogged more frequently. I’ve also started to work on some open source projects, such as ReSwift.

Besides software I love think and talk about economics, philosophy and politics.

In my free time I enjoy hiking the beatiful Bay Area, travelling and watching soccer.

I love getting touch with new folks, so let me know if there’s anything you want to chat about.
