Emmett Hitz

R&D Engineer

Emmett graduated from RPI with a Bachelor’s in Engineering in 2017.  Following this he worked at Apprenda as a Systems Engineer, where he worked on the Kismatic Enterprise Toolkit, and made small contributions to Kubernetes SIG-Windows.  Prior to that, he worked at the Rensselaer Center for Open Source on RPI’s Yet Another Course Scheduler (YACS: yacs.cs.rpi.edu).

Outside of work Emmett enjoys weightlifting, skiing (you’ll find him at Killington during the winter), and juggling (which he’s been doing since the age 0f 7).  Fun fact: Emmett went surfing out at Montauk during Hurricane Irene!
