Jeaye has a background in C++ systems programming, focusing on games and game engines. After 5 years of that, he co-founded an esports tournament startup written in full-stack Clojure for another 5 years. These days, he’s at Electronic Arts (EA) building tooling used to make some of the world’s top games.

In each space, C++, Rust, Clojure, NixOS, etc, Jeaye aims to make an impact with his open source projects. For Clojure, at first, that was with Orchestra. Now, the flagship is jank.
