Ryan Smith

Senior Full Stack Engineer
Who Am I?

I'm a former teacher & lifelong student. Engineering allows me to create tools that allow people to create, connect, and inspire. I like to make music, travel around the world when I can, and I always enjoy a good book.

Why Formative?

As a former educator and now engineer, Formative allows a powerful way to combine those skills and work on an exceptional platform. I am inspired to be able to help teachers & students maximize their academic growth with Formative.
