About Me


Hello there!

I'm Ben Vogt, and I'm a software engineer in Chicago, with a passion for technology, and biking around the city.

For a couple of years I worked as an engineer at Signal.co. Since then I've been working on protobase.io.

I code mostly in Java, Javascript/Typescript, and Golang, and I know a bit of python. Frontend development is also something I'm good at, and I like to think that I'm a full-stack developer, but that really depends on how deep of a stack we're talking about. :)

I love spreadsheets and I keep a running list of books, articles, papers, videos, and comics about them. You can find the whole list here.

In my spare time I enjoy biking around Chicago. I'm currently biking through all ~79 neighborhoods, and I'm at 53 so far!

You can find examples of my work at github.com/vogtb and you can contact me at benjvogt@gmail.com.

I'll email you when I've written something, which should be every month or so.
