Hi. My name is Jason Weill (pronounced “while”). I like to build products that change the way people think and act. I also think a lot about the city — not just Seattle, where I live, but the idea of bringing the world’s peoples together in a single exciting space.

I’ve worked in software development at Tableau Software since late September 2014. I worked at Amazon.com in Email Platform and Kindle Content Store from May 2006 to September 2014. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in December 2002 and worked at CombineNet, a Pittsburgh-based software company, from January 2003 to May 2006. For more information, see my resume.
I grew up in Syosset, New York, on Long Island, and attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. More info in About Me.
As I’ve traveled to places near and far from home, I’ve been posting my photos. Also check out Weill in Japan, my travelogue from a six-week study abroad and homestay program in Tokyo in 2002, which includes hundreds of photos and thousands of words from the trip.
In 2001 I wrote Livestat, a Perl system for tracking statistics for quiz bowl games. Livestat is available freely and has been used to track many events years after I finished work on the most recent version.
Thanks for stopping by!
