Kyle Soeltz is a Front-end developer and works on the Growth Lab's Atlas of International Complexity. He is passionate about building great user interfaces and supports the Atlas with new features and improvements. Prior to joining CID, he built and designed front-end systems at Motivis Learning, an education software startup looking to help revolutionize the way our country learns. He also worked at COMSOL Multiphysics, a physics simulation software company where he built tools and resources for the engineers that use the product.
In between his time at Motivis and his start at CID, Kyle spent nearly 6 months hiking from Mexico to Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail. While on the trail, he promoted his trip online and used it to raise money for mental health research and trail conservation efforts.
Kyle holds a degree in Graphic Design and a minor in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, climbing, cooking, and creating side projects.
