About Jason Ernst

I'm Jason, senior software engineer at a robotics startup in the Bay Area.

Prior to this I was the CTO and first developer at a startup in Vancouver called RightMesh which was building a mesh networking library for Android phones. During this time I was also an adjunct professor at the University of Guelph and was the industrial PI of a $2.13M MITACS grant to improve connectivity in Northern Canada, specifically Rigolet. RightMesh raised $30M in an ICO in 2018.

Before that I was the CTO of Redtree Robotics which was working on a robotics hardware software platform to enable plug-and-play swarm robotics. I started this company with a friend during grad school and we raised some seed funding from Real Ventures.

I've won, sponsored, and mentored hackathons. I love to give talks and present papers.

I also enjoy driving, working on cars, video games, contributing to open source, cycling, running, and travel.
