We hope you’re as excited as we are about our newest team member, Philip McAllister (@phil), who is joining as a developer!

Philip has a degree in Computer Science from The University of Tulsa. He moved to Washington D.C. to work on computer visualization at the Naval Research Laboratory, but after a while he caught the startup bug and moved to San Francisco to contribute at companies such as Boxbe and 8tracks. Most recently, Philip was the Director of Mobile at Gowalla.

Philip’s passions, besides making mobile applications, include continually perfecting the margarita, and skiing/snowboarding in Tahoe. Philip also loves traveling to other countries for extended periods of time; most recently he spent 4 months in China, Japan, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Indonesia!

We’ve very happy to be welcoming Philip to our team today and are actively seeking more folks passionate about Instagram to join our team. Check out our Jobs page and if you think you’d be a good fit at Instagram, be sure to send an email to jobs@instagram.com
