Founder & CEO, Scalr


Sebastian is the founder of Scalr, a multi-cloud management platform relied upon by NASA, Expedia, Samsung and many others; the founder of SVCCG, Silicon Valley's second largest user group; is a guest lecturer at Carnegie Mellon on entrepreneurship; and sits on the cloud advisory boards at Google and Microsoft. He has been developing products and services that leverage AWS and other cloud providers since 2004. When he is not working on Scalr, Sebastian likes to make sushi and play rugby. He also writes in the third person but feels slightly weird about it.
