Amanda Gerdes
Data Engineer, Blizzard Entertainment

Amanda Gerdes is a data engineer with Blizzard Entertainment, focusing on the Blizzard Data Warehouse and its many supporting data pipelines. With eight years of experience in ETL development and management, she currently rounds out a team responsible for providing fast, accurate data at scale to Blizzard’s Business Intelligence team. Amanda holds a B.A. from UC Berkeley as well as an MBA and M.S. in Systems Engineering from Loyola Marymount University. Whenever she catches herself thinking that maybe she’s not doing too badly at this “life” thing, she looks up her World of Warcraft playtime in the data warehouse and is humbled once again.
