Bobby is co-founder of Interana, where he is building the next generation of tools for analyzing massive amounts of data in real time.
Bobby was Director of Engineering at Facebook where he led the infrastructure engineering team for 6 years. During that time the team scaled the site from just a few million users to almost a billion. He personally wrote a number of the early systems including Scribe and the first version of Haystack. His team built Facebook’s hadoop/hive analytics stack and the memcache/mysql stack – a database that served trillions objects and answered billions of queries per second. He received a B.S. in Engineering and Applied Science from Caltech.
