mb bischoff (they/them) is a designer and developer in New York City. They are a founder and partner at Lickability, a software studio known for its apps and work for clients like The Atlantic, Houseparty, and Meetup.

mb began blogging and podcasting in 2003 and got their start in tech as IT Director of PodcastPeople at age 13. After high school, they studied human-computer interaction at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, before dropping out to join the mobile team at The New York Times. They worked at Tumblr during its heyday, as an engineer, engineering manager, and product manager.

All the while, mb and their business partners were working to grow Lickability from a side project into the ten-person team it is today. In 2015, mb went full-time at the company, and since then, they’ve worn multiple hats as a product manager, software engineer, sales lead, and token extrovert.

mb is an acclaimed speaker, giving talks at conferences around the globe focused on the intersections of technology and culture. They write about these and other topics here and on the company blog.

In their spare time, mb enjoys crafting classic cocktails, seeing live theatre, and trawling Wikipedia for interesting facts. They’re proudly bisexual, trans, & nonbinary. Oh yeah, and they were on Jeopardy!
