About Ryan Mahoney

Software Engineer. Leader. Researcher.


The official line: I’m a director of technology for the customer-facing technology department of state of Massachusetts’ public transportation agency. I’ve spent the past two decades leading engineering teams as a founder, director, manager, and tech lead working with brilliant engineers that make a positive impacts with their work. During this time, I’ve learned a lot about recruiting, retaining, training, and aligning smart, effective engineers.

The bottom line: I believe in being radically candid with the leadership of organizations to identify and overcome barriers to having a diverse and exceptional team that builds great products. I’m not afraid to hold my peers and direct reports accountable to put in their best efforts. I’m not perfect, I make plenty of mistakes, but I know this has helped me get where I am today. I challenge my team to take risks and work in areas that are not always comfortable to maximize personal and professional growth.
