Hi, my name is Charity Majors, and I am professionally caremad about computers.
I am currently the cofounder and CTO of a new startup focused on making machine data explorable and delightful. Until recently I was a Production Engineering Manager at Facebook, where I spent 3.5 years working on Parse (both pre and post-acquisition). I also spent several years at Linden Lab, working on the infrastructure that powers Second Life.
I was a classical piano performance major in college, but dropped out because it turns out I prefer making money. I have been building systems and managing engineering teams ever since. I love startups, chaos and hard scaling problems. Somehow I always end up dealing with databases.
