Steven Jens - Bio
I was born in Ames, Iowa, and spent twelve of my first seventeen years living in Iowa. The last seven of these years were spent in Ankeny, a city of about 20,000 (at the time), ten miles north of Des Moines.
I left Iowa to attend MIT, where I got a degree in Math with Computer Science and minors in Economics and Mechanical Engineering. I wrote software for USPowerSolutions for three years (to the day) before I was laid off.
I ended up getting another software job, though, for athenahealth, which helps doctors collect on their bills.
I lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for 15 years.
