Senior Engineering Manager at Heroku.

Control Planes

Focus is on safety and reliability, with some UX added for good measure. In other words, both state and coordination are my problem.


Control planes also require humans to operate them in times of need. Looking at ways to improve how we act as extensions of complex systems, especially when they break. Learning a lot from Engineering A Safer World and Designing Distributed Control Systems, as well as peers.


Learning how to effectively manage a team, manage up and be a force multiplier within the organisation.
