About Me

I’m Josh Owen. I recently moved to New York, NY after graduating from Rutgers University with a double major in Computer Science and Economics where I was co-captain of the Ice Hockey team, and received the Ralph L. Taylor ’43 Unsung Hero Award. While in school, I worked at a startup in the sports collectibles industry for 3 years as a Senior IT Analyst, and currently work at a big bank as a software engineer.

I’m currently working on a high performance web framework and toolkit suite using ExtJS and Asp.Net MVC.  Before this I was part of a portal development team as a frontend engineer and created developer productivity applications on the side.

At the startup I developed their inventory management system automating data entry using a web crawler.  I also created a secure portal for clients to view their consignment information and items’ status in real-time and integrated this with the inventory management system using a set of secure APIs.  I also developed many other smaller applications including an online store based on osCommerce, a contest site using eBay’s APIs, and a tool for selling our items on multiple venues (on our site and eBay, although it would scale to other sites as well).

In college I developed network-centric Java applications.  Some were a BitTorrent client and a distributed simulation tool with byzantine node detection with and without a Law Governed Interactions middleware. I was a group leader in both of these projects. My responsibilities included designing the system architecture and programming. I excelled in Internet Technology, Computer Security, Operating Systems, Database Management, and Distributed Systems courses.

I enjoy traveling, playing Ice Hockey, Lacrosse, Sailing, Fishing and generally being outdoors.
