OkCupid

Tom Quisel is OkCupid’s Director of Technology. For the past four years, he’s been devoted to helping millions across the world find love through smarter algorithms and better data analysis. Currently, Tom is giving his all learning to lead the phenomenally talented technical team at OkCupid. The path is as littered with pitfalls as it is with opportunities, but he wouldn’t trade it for any other position in the world. Tom has a B.S. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon where he focused on Statistics and Machine learning. Tom also studied bioinformatics at EPFL in Switzerland, where he co-authored a paper on extracting meaningful information from large but noisy biological datasets. In his free time Tom loves to hike the hills of upstate New York, crossing his fingers that the servers stay up.
