Lars Rasmussen: Building Graph Search at Facebook


13 June 2013

Lars Rasmussen is a director of engineering on Facebook's Graph Search team in California and has a PhD in theoretical computer science from University of California, Berkeley.

In early 2003, Lars and his brother Jens co-founded a mapping-related startup - Where 2 Technologies - which was acquired by Google in October 2004. Lars became the lead engineer on the team that created Google Maps and worked out of Google's Sydney office until joining Facebook in late 2010.

Lars has probably the world's least developed sense of direction and consistently types faster than he can spell. In his copious spare time he enjoys advising early-stage startups and coffee.
