Yoni Samlan
Engineering Lead - Software Hacker - Mobile Builder


I'm the head of mobile at LevelUp, where my team builds the Android and iOS apps. The SDKs we write are under the hood of hundreds of apps used daily at thousands of merchants around the US.

I originally joined LevelUp in 2010 to develop SCVNGR, a mobile location-based game we used to make. Millions of people used it to check in, shared photos, and leave tips at places around their cities.

I co-founded Active Frequency, a web and mobile development consulting shop in Cambridge, MA. I now serve as an advisor.

I speak about mobile development at events like Thoughtbot Boston I/O, Tech In Motion, Google I/O, MITX, and FITC Mobile.

I have a BS in computer science and philosophy from Brandeis University.

I live in Cambridge, MA. You'll find me around town running, playing Ultimate, taking pictures, or with a guitar at the odd open mic night.

My résumé is available as a webpage or pdf, if you’re into that.
