Brian Campbell
Distinguished Engineer
Ping Identity

As a Distinguished Engineer for Ping Identity, Brian aspires to one day know what a Distinguished Engineer actually does for a living. In the meantime, he's tried to make himself useful with little things like designing and building much of PingFederate, the product that put Ping Identity on the map. When not making himself useful, he tries to build his legacy by sneaking his name onto technical documents that few people will ever actually read, including some identity and security standards in the IETF and OpenID Foundation. He holds a B.A., magna cum laude, in Computer Science from Amherst College in Massachusetts. Despite spending four years in the state, he has to look up how to spell "Massachusetts" every time he writes it.
