Mat Owens

Kansas City Software Engineer

I'm Mat, a technical lead and full stack software engineer living in Kansas City with over a decade of experience handcrafting modern web applications and services.

Currently, I'm the Development Manager at Thruline Marketing, a leading education marketing company empowering students to seize their dream career through free – employee sponsored – higher ed learning and guaranteed job placement.

I also serve on the board for the Rock Chalk Roundball Classic, a local 501(c)(3) non-profit that raises funds to support families with children battling pediatric cancer. Though we fundraise for families through several different events, our keynote is an annual Kansas Men's Basketball alumni game where our beneficiaries get a chance to interact with their favorite Jayhawk legends.

I'm Midwest proud. I love exploring the great outdoors and losing my voice in The Phog, Arrowhead and The K. I never pass up an opportunity to stuff my face with Kansas City BBQ (easily better than Memphis, Carolina or Texas BBQ), or indulge in our unmatched selection of local libations.

I hang out in various realms throughout the web, let's connect.
