Director of Applications Engineering
San Francisco, CA
Jamie Grier is now Director of Applications Engineering at data Artisans where he’s extremely excited to be able to help others realize the potential of Flink in their own projects. His goal is to help others design systems to solve challenging problems in the real world.
Jamie has been working in the field of streaming computation for the last decade. This has spanned everything from ultra high performance video stream acquisition and processing to social media analytics.
Prior to joining data Artisans, Jamie was at Twitter working on rethinking the realtime analytics stack with the goals of making it much more efficient and also capable of computing accurate results in realtime without relying on the “Lambda Architecture” for correctness. Before Twitter Jamie was one of the lead engineers at Gnip building their social media streaming, filtering and delivery system and before that was the lead engineer at Boulder Imaging working on systems that could ingest and process greater than 1 GB/sec of streaming video on a single machine.
Jamie is interested in streaming computation and mechanically sympathetic software architectures. He is particularly interested in building systems that are both high performance and highly scalable and his favorite quote is “You can have a second computer once you’ve shown you know how to use the first one”.
