About Jason Ernst

I'm currently Principal Software Engineer at a startup working on mobile networks on phones. I'm also an Adjunct Professor at the University of Guelph in Canada where I am on the committee of several graduate students who are studying wireless networks.

Prior to this I was a Senior Software Engineer at a two different robotics startups in San Francisco. Before that 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.
