Yiren Lu


I am a NYC based writer and software engineer currently running a technical content agency called Frindle. Previously Maps infrastructure at Google and Observability at Uber. My engineering related profiles and projects are on my engineering page.

I write on technology for The New York Times Magazine and New York Magazine. My articles are on my writing page.

I am especially interested in long form narrative journalism that offers a new or insider's perspective on companies, people, and trends that audiences are only broadly familiar with.
