Director of Technical Operations, New Relic

I have been doing Ops and IT for about 17 years. I have focused almost exclusively on rapid growth start ups. I went through various specialties, sysadmin, DBA, network before taking that blue pill and becoming a manager. I have been working at New Relic for a bit over 4 years. During that time the company has grown from 6 to 110 people and we are now serving 1.2 million requests a minute.
