Jake Englund

Jake Englund

Sr. Site Reliabilty Engineer

Jake is a Senior Site Reliability Engineer at Blameless. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, he has an insatiable curiosity for learning about how complex systems work, which led to his degrees in Computer Science and Statistics from the University of Washington in Seattle. Ever since his serendipitous introduction to SRE, Jake has been fascinated by the unique challenges and innovative solutions which come with scaling web services by orders of magnitude. In his spare time, he enjoys video and tabletop games, dancing, and cooking.

Matt Davis

Matt Davis

Senior Infrastructure Engineer

Just as at home with analog synthesizer electronics as with Infrastructure as Code, I find joy in operating inherently chaotic complex systems. My expertise brings to bear a variegated background including data-center operations, storage hardware and distributed databases, IT security, site reliability, support services, observability systems, and techops leadership.

With degrees in music performance and composition, I have a passion for exploring the relationships between the artistic mind and operating distributed software architectures. This is reflected in my subjects for technology talks and musical output, both of which seek out diverse ways to introspect and learn from our adaptive universe.

My experiences have led me to talk about reliability and resilience at QCon, SRECon, Music City Tech, Disney JETA, RE:Deploy, and close to home at Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE).
