Hey! It's Me!

I'm a software engineer from Seattle. These days I work for Google in their Seattle office, helping to empower nonprofits with technology. Before that, I was part of the Google Drive team in Boulder, CO. In 2017 I graduated from the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern University with a B.S. in Computer Science. A long time ago I interned on the Google AdWords team in New York and at Dreambox Learning in Bellevue, WA.

In my free time I like to ski and hike in the Cascade Mountains. I'm learning to play golf, but so far I'm not very good.


Stuff I've Made

These are old, but I'm still proud of them

Adapting Elo for Relative Player Ranking in Team-Based Games (2017)

Statistics! In the early-to-mid 2010s a drinking game called Caps gained prominence at Northwestern University. This post is a result of my efforts to quantitatively identify elite Caps players as part of an iOS app called SplashTrack.

Startup Generator (2017)

Need a business model for your next company? Look no further.

Rainier (2016)

Rainier is a lightweight Sass framework. It's modular, has typography based on relative units, and is built to be extended and modified. I developed Rainier and released it under the MIT license. Check out the demo page!

RyanMadden.net (2015)

I started this site in 2014 to teach myself web development. A couple revisions and many years later, here we are. Enjoy!
