Project Manager and Lead Software Architect (Was this your original title at Spokeo?) No, I started as Senior Software Engineer
Tell us about your job. What do you do?
I make sure everyone in backend engineering is happy coming to office for work every day. As a team, we support the backend data and infrastructure to reach our company’s goal and vision.
Life before Spokeo:
I was a graduate student at USC finishing my masters and PhD in computer science.
Most interesting Spokeo Project:
Merge in 1 day. We came up with a scalable infrastructure that enabled us to link any number of raw records into people records in less than a day (currently at 12B in 18hrs). This technology is still evolving and will help our company moving towards the next level. I am really proud of this technology and thankful to people like Jun-young and Xilong who spent days and nights with me to get this done.
Favorite Spokeo event ever:
First office expansion party in 2011 at the office. There was no limit of +1’s. It was just crazy and amazingly fun.
