Hi! I'm Jonathan Browne. I'm an incoming software developer at Amazon. I've spent my whole life designing, building, and digging into computer systems.

I'm naturally quiet and thoughtful. I'm very curious; in my spare time, I enjoy experimenting with different technologies and learning how they work. I also try to be helpful and ethical whenever possible.

My Projects

SpongePowered: In 2015, I first became involved in open-source work through several contributions to Sponge, an open-source plugin API for Minecraft servers. I became a core developer in 2017, where I worked on maintaining the API and implementation and reviewing community-submitted issues and pull requests.

The University of Texas at Austin: I attended UT Austin from 2019 to 2024 studying computer science in their integrated BS/MS program for computer science. I graduated with both my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and my Master of Science in Computer Science in May 2024.

UT Austin Building-Wide Intelligence Lab: I joined the UT Austin Building-Wide Intelligence Lab through UT's Freshman Research Initiative in the Autonomous Robots stream. From 2020 to 2023, I contributed to several projects within and collaborations involving the lab, including:

Vectra: I worked as a software engineering intern at Vectra during the summer of 2021. I worked on enhancements to customer-facing and internal reporting systems and worked on several internal security hardening features.

UT Information and Systems Security Society: I joined ISSS, a cybersecurity student organization at UT Austin, in my freshman year. Through ISSS, I learned many techniques on how to attack and defend computer systems. From 2022 to 2024, I served as an engineering officer for ISSS, where I helped plan events, talks, and competitions like UTCTF. If you'd like, you can see the challenges I wrote for UTCTF 2023, UTCTF 2024, and other competitions on GitHub.

Amazon: I worked as a software development engineer intern at Amazon in the summers of 2022 and 2023, and will be returning to work full-time in 2024.

  • In 2022, I interned in Amazon's Supply Chain Optimization Technologies organization. I designed and implemented a web service integration for their delivery planning systems and worked on improvements to our development and deployment processes.
  • In 2023, I worked with Amazon's Exports and Expansions organization to build an internal dashboard for cross-team collaboration. I designed and implemented the full web stack for the dashboard, from the frontend to the backend with inter-service integrations.
  • I've been hired by Amazon for a returning full-time position starting in summer 2024.
