Super excited and thrilled to share that I am joining the Production Engineering team at Meta/Facebook in London! My first day is tomorrow, and I can not wait for it.
Production Engineering was created at Facebook to work with engineering teams and partners to champion the Reliability, Scalability, Performance, and Security posture of production services. PEs are hybrid software and systems engineers; they are the glue holding things together, whether that’s infrastructure and software or teams and processes.
The true power of Production Engineering comes from developing strong relationships with partner engineering teams and valuing collaboration and knowledge sharing to build technical expertise and community. PE’s write production code and solve hard problems in systems serving billions of people across Facebook, services like Instagram, WhatsApp, and Oculus, and in diverse infrastructure areas like machine learning/inference, storage, and networking.

Or you can watch this presentation at SRECon 2015 that talks about Production Engineering at Facebook and how it evolved:
Can not wait to get starts on a journey of challenges, learnings and hyper growth!
