Torrey Payne '09: Uber Software Engineer

For Torrey Payne ’09, a software engineer with Uber, days are filled with writing code, reading code, and collaborating with teammates to build features for apps. Given the international nature of the company, his work takes place at high speed and involves teams from across the globe – something he is comfortable with from his time at St. Anne’s-Belfield School.

“The international presence at the School exposed me to a lot of diverse people from the entire world,” he said. “Making those connections has had a lasting impact on me in immeasurable ways and motivated me to do my own exploration and connect with so many people in so many places.”

In addition to his fellow students, Payne credits the teachers he had at the School as having a great impact on his current career. He names Mrs. Robertson, Mr. Taylor, Mr. Bartholomew, and Mr. Johnson specifically for their support.

“Mr. Johnson had an immense impact on me and my family; he was so supportive, and had a strong connection with my mom, insisting that she get me a laptop to help get my work done, among other things that I needed as time went on. He had my back when I struggled, and our homeroom was very close with each other,” he said.
