Hi! My name is Roberto Vitillo. I have over 10 years of experience in the tech industry as a software engineer, technical lead, and manager.

After getting my master's degree in computer science from the University of Pisa, I worked on scientific computing applications at the Berkeley Lab. The software I contributed is used to this day by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider.

Next, I worked at Mozilla, where I set the direction of the data platform from its very early days and built a large part of it, including the team.

Then, in 2017, I joined Microsoft to help scale an internal telemetry platform and launch multiple analytics products on top of it, such as Playfab and Customer Insights. The data ingestion platform I was responsible for is one of the largest in the world, ingesting millions of events per second from billions of devices worldwide.

In the fall of 2022, I joined AWS as a Principal Software Engineer in the DynamoDB organization.
