I'm Zachary Wasserman, recent Computer Science graduate at UPenn, and KPCB Fellows Software Engineering intern at Opower.
Zachary Wasserman recently graduated from the computer science department at the University of Pennsylvania. Zach's studies have brought him through a full undergraduate curriculum, and into graduate classes with a focus on systems and security. During his summers, Zachary has worked first as a software engineering intern at Hulu, developing an internal cloud management system, and later at Opower, working on Hadoop and data infrastructure. In his current position at Opower, Zach is also a fellow in the KPCB Fellows program.
In 2013, Zach will begin working full time for Facebook as a Software Engineer. Before he begins, he will be traveling the world, rock climbing and adventuring.
