About me

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.

    Why do people think that dev and ops goes together. Programmers are artist and System Admins are mechanics. Left brain, right brain. If you are good at one you are not good at the other.
