Although his specific birth place and date are unknown, it is known that Yishan grew up in Minnesota, and went to Mounds View High School, located in Arden Hills, Minnesota. After articulating, he enrolled at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and graduated in 1997, but then apparently waited for his first job until the early 2000s, when he was appointed as senior engineering manager at PayPal. He worked for the online payment service until 2005, when he joined Facebook, a social network in the making at the time. He was the first director of engineering, on such projects that included crowd translation, among others. No doubt his net worth grew at least steadily during his tenure with the company.
He left Facebook after five years and joined Reddit, and after just a couple of months there, he received an offer to become CEO of the website. He took the role, and served in the position until 2014, when he decided to leave the company due to several internal disagreements, including aversion to his proposal to move the company’s operations away from San Francisco, proposing San Mateo County south of the city. Regardless, his net worth certainly benefited from his time with Reddit.
After Reddit, he became advisor at Quora, a question-and-answer site. Furthermore, he started the Sunfire Offices, a co-working space in Mountain View.
Yishan is also an accomplished author; starting in 2011 he has been a regular contributor and editor at the financially orientated Forbes magazine, focusing on articles about technology. This has also increased Yishan’s net worth.
Regarding his personal life, Yishan has stated that he is married to Kimberly Algeri-Wong, however, there are no further details about whether the couple has children or not. The Wong family resides in Mountain View.
