Snap Inc., San Francisco | Software Engineer

June 2022 - Now

Returned to the Data Mesh Catalog (DMC) team to improve data searchability at Snap. This meant making it easier to find and reuse useful data stored in different media (e.g. BigQuery tables, GCS buckets, Looker dashboards, etc.). I am responsible for:

  • Using React and Typescript to maintain an SPA that allows users to search for data to see how often it’s being used and where.
  • Developing the Java backend for the above service to provide data from BigQuery, Spanner, and Hbase datastores (primarily querying using SQL).
  • Creating pipelines to catalog metadata, primarily using Apache Airflow, BigQuery, and Spanner.
  • Maintaining and monitoring our services using Grafana, Kubernetes, Docker, Jenkins, and other tools.
  • Providing excellent and timely customer support.
  • Onboarding new hires to the project.

Our team is also spearheading the effort to make BigQuery a tier 1 service at Snap. This means that we:

  • Save millions of dollars per year by identifying unused resources for deletion.
  • Monitor query cost and performance with Grafana dashboards to maintain a high quality of service.
