Walter calls himself a “nerd” because he’s always loved physics and computer science. After 15 years of consulting in Silicon Valley, Walter started feeling bored by the tech scene. At the same time, big data started to become an exciting field that piqued his interest. Now he manages the systems in dealing with large data.
Walter starts his day at home, checking his Slack chats and emails. As the engineering manager of the West Coast office, Walter connects with his team on tasks that help keep focus. He’s also working on the future architecture of the data system, helping evolve it with a new, more scalable architecture.
