Mike comes from Parse, a mobile backend as a service, where he worked with a small team to manage one of the largest and most complex MongoDB footprints in the world. While at Parse, Mike worked on getting the first production instances of MongoDB with RocksDB as the underlying storage engine. This doubled Parse’s write capacity and dropped storage utilization by 10x.
Mike was also part of the “Tech Surge” for healthcare.gov back when the initial rollout crumbled because there was no accountability, monitoring or communication.
Mike graduated from University of California Santa Barbara in Computer Science, and proudly represents the UCSB Gauchos roller hockey team.
