Engineering Manager @ ● Hired as a tech lead in 2010. Worked on a variety of projects in my first 2 years at the company -- reduced www CPU load by 5% (resulting in tens of millions of dollars annual savings), developed and launched an open graph 'likes' API that is used by a variety of platform partners (including Instagram and Pinterest), and deprecated large amounts of legacy code/features that were infrequently used and carried a disproportionate ongoing maintenance cost.
● Moved to London in 2012 to open the Facebook London engineering office
● Hired and managed a team of 25 engineers (three teams of ~8) to build infrastructure that supports the creation, measurement, and improvement of Facebook's knowledge graph.
● Responsible for setting the vision + roadmap for each team and ensuring each team has a sustained high level of impact.
● Identified team needs, set recruiting goals, and hired tech leads and managers for each team. Effectively delegated responsibility to key leaders on each team.
● Coached many engineers through the transition to management or larger tech lead roles (including engineers in other teams/orgs).
● Worked with senior leaders in the company to develop/scale coaching and mentorship programs that support the ongoing career development of engineers across the company. These programs have been proven to be highly effective both qualitatively and quantitatively -- students consistently say they are very satisfied with the programs and data shows that past students get better review scores and have a higher promotion velocity than non-students. When I first became involved these programs supported a few dozen engineers each year; they've now been scaled by an order of magnitude to supports hundreds of engineers/year, and we've also introduced new programs to cover gaps we identified (e.g. helping new engineers without industry experience accelerate their ramp-up by teaching the practical 'nuts and bolts' of being an effective software engineer).
