THE WORLD’S LARGEST
Technical Lead Manager, Uber
Chris is currently a Technical Lead Manager at Uber. He manages the Corporate Productivity Tools team. In that time, his group has leveraged open source software to create an in-house messaging platform that deeply integrates into the life of the company. The team is also creating a new search platform to unify the many domains of knowledge at Uber. In his tenure, DevOps has become the key practice to enabling rapid development.
Chris has been building web technology since the early 2000s, however he spent a decade traveling the world as a Tennis Professional and training at world-class facilities. He loves the art of teaching and crafting strong teams. Inevitably, the desire to empower through technology was too strong and he focused on tech exclusively. Since the switch, he has help found multiple startups and has worked with all layers from backend to frontend. He calls back on his experience teaching thousands of students to help humanize development and operations.
