Brian Porter He/Him/His

Brian is a veteran polyglot full-stack software engineer who has also been leading engineering teams since 2008, driven by a belief that focusing on people produces superior software outcomes. Following a BA in Computer Science, Brian spent time first as an Operations Manager in IT, then serving as a team lead for a CakePHP consultancy before joining Wirecutter as Lead Engineer.

He continued as a Principal Engineer at 8th Light, and his consulting experience has taught him to enjoy engaging with users directly and finding creative, cost-effective solutions to both business and technical challenges. Frustrated with wider tech industry’s frequent myopia and self-aggrandizement, Brian joins Binti to focus his skills toward visible public good.

When he’s not at his computer, Brian spends time with his spouse and two daughters, occasionally sneaking video games in between. He’s slowly improving at telling dad jokes.
