Hi, I'm Jonas, a compiler engineer from Belgium, currently living in Silicon Valley.
I studied computer science at the University of Leuven and obtained my Master's degree in 2015. During my studies I spend several summers at Materialise, tackling 3D-printing related problems. After graduating I worked as a contractor for Amadeus, where I developed backend services for managing financial data.
Pursuing my interests in compilers, I joined GuardSquare in the beginning of 2016 as the first member on a brand new team. Here I had the amazing opportunity to develop a new product from scratch and work with LLVM in a professional context. Before the end of the year we released the first version of our iOS-targeted obfuscator iXGuard.
I joined Apple in the summer of 2017 to work full time on developer tools, in particular on debugging technologies. This ranges from generating debug info in the compiler, linking it with dsymutil to consuming it in lldb. I spent the first year working remotely from London before relocating to the Bay Area in the fall of 2018. Starting September 2020 I manage the "Debugger Core" team.
Outside work I like to remain involved with open source. When not behind a computer I enjoy cycling and rowing (indoor). I'm also a reviewer for ACM Computing Reviews.
