Jubal Harpster

  • Whether he’s developing spatial technology or bicycle racing, Jubal lives on the leading edge. He’s been working with spatial information and related technologies for more than 15 years.

    “I thrive on challenges,” said Jubal. What’s the biggest challenge he’s faced? “A performance requirement that a query using a one billion-row table be returned and mapped within two seconds.” How did he manage it? “We had to organize the data differently and orient the application toward total performance for the user. We came up with a fairly elegant solution and one that didn’t require a server farm to deliver.”

    When he’s not working or traveling, you can usually find Jubal at the local park playing tag with his two daughters. You may also see him riding bikes around the Northwest or working on his motorcycle and waiting for the sun to show up in Seattle.
