I work primarily with the core services group which handles
creation of / access to Users, Tweets, Relationships, and URLs.
My first year was spent
working on the User Service and my capstone project was migration of
the user creation flow out of the legacy codebase into our service for
increased reliability and decreased maintenance costs. After this I
moved to Tech Lead the Social Graph Service where I spent time dealing
with both technical and organizational challenges. During my time leading
SGS we launched several new user-facing features as well as making major
improvements in our service architecture and culture around testing.
I recently transitioned SGS to the next Tech Lead and am currently
helping cover User Services while they ramp up new team members and
fill open reqs.
