Emma Spencer
Software Engineer

Emma is a Software Engineer at Maxwell, helping the team build new features and make the web app awesome.

A Massachusetts native, she found her way back to the city after graduating from Columbia University with a degree in Archaeology. Emma taught herself to code for fun while working at an environmental health nonprofit, which led her to think about the impact technology can have on changing public health. She decided to study web development at General Assembly and is excited to combine her passions for health and coding at Maxwell.

An avid runner, Emma trains with the Boston Athletic Association and spends a lot of time thinking about her next workout (and next snack). Like any good Somerville resident, she can usually be found riding her bike to buy vegetables and playing lawn games when the weather is nice.
