Mark Wong-VanHaren :: Software Engineer

Mark has 30 years experience in software development. He co-founded Excite.com, was CTO of ecommerce site Glyde, and served as VP R&D at Wordnik. Over the years, he's designed and built a wide range of tools and products, including: a special-purpose search engine, a columnar DBMS, a category-best iPhone app, and a templating language and compiler. At Groq, Mark works on our compiler as well as developer tools. He especially enjoys taking complex problems and mercilessly simplifying, usually using a functional programming language. Mark studied computational linguistics at Stanford and maintains a strong interest in natural and programming languages. Outside of work, Mark enjoys tandem biking and creating music with his family band.

Adrian Macias :: Machine Learning Systems Specialist

A principal technologist with advanced degrees in both Communications and Signal Processing, Adrian Macias has over 20 years of experience in every aspect of development. He began his career as a NASA engineer, and then became a tech startup entrepreneur before moving to technology and leadership roles at major fortune 500 semiconductor companies. As a machine learning system specialist, Adrian is passionate about helping others to use Groq’s technology to build elegant solutions for machine learning workloads.

Jennifer Hwang :: Director, Hardware Engineering

Jen is an engineer at heart. She has spent her entire career building ASICs, with over 30 successful tape-outs under her belt. Starting at MIT, Jennifer graduated with her Masters and Bachelors in Electrical Engineering. No stranger to startups, she was a part of Silicon Spice startup, which was acquired by Broadcom. Jen became a Director of Engineering responsible for Broadcom’s cellular processor division for hardware verification with a multi-site global team. At Groq, she is leading the Hardware verification team creating ASICs for machine learning. Specifically, she loves to roll up her sleeves and up to her elbows in the details of how things work. In her free time, she supports her family — reading, skiing, and serving as a parent-volunteer for her two growing kids at school.
