Stephanie first told us about the detours that led her from math, art and political science to computer science. We then discussed her first jobs and her first mentor. We then touched on how she joined Oculus and Unity and their respective interview processes before switching gears and talking about entrepreneurship and her creating her own business. Stephanie was then very open about her technical burn out and explained how she feels it coming back.
Stephanie Hurlburt is a graphics engineer and co-founder of Binomial, a software company based in Seattle that makes Basis, a popular image/texture compression product. Among other things, she previously worked on graphics engineering and engine programming at Oculus and Unity.
