  • Ben Guillet

    I get to deal with awesome technical challenges like how do you handle 10-20 k req/s throughput? Why do the worker processes freeze up, and why only under this sustained load? How can we get our messages through in seconds instead of in minutes?

  • Ted Ying

    I had a lot of fun at Remind. One of my favourite bits was the big impact: build entire features from scratch and change the engines under the plane while it’s flying in the cloud (hopefully without crashing it). Then, watch the users blast the servers with load.
