my name is jackie luo, and i'm an engineer at square building square console on the platform engineering team. i'm working to build a better tech industry. if you are, too, get in touch.

when i have time, i run irl society (a monthly event series), the framework project (an interview series with people thinking about tech and its impact on society), and the dream machine (an erratically published newsletter with my essays on technology, society, and life). less formally, i like to shoot photography, write, and cook.

before square, i worked at nylas and studied philosophy at columbia university. once upon a time, i ran a fashion and arts publication called ache magazine and a nonprofit called fashion cares.
