Casey Rosenthal is currently the Traffic and Chaos Engineering Manager at Netflix. His teams fortify availability in anticipation of failures on one of the largest distributed systems in production. In his past as an Executive Manager, Senior Architect, and Software Engineer, Casey has managed teams to tackle Big Data, architect solutions to challenging distributed systems problems, and train others to do the same. He leverages experience with distributed systems, artificial intelligence, translating novel algorithms and academia into working models, and selling a ‘vision of the possible’ to clients and colleagues alike. For fun, he models human behavior using personality profiles in languages like Elixir, Ruby, Erlang, Prolog, and Scala.
Casey has worked on large sets of unstructured data for many years, from managing NASA’s metadata on images from heritage telescopes to more recently being the General Manager for Professional Services at Basho, whose unstructured, NoSQL database Riak is used by over a third of the Fortune 50.
