Hi all! My name is Eric Chiang and I’m currently an Engineering Manager at Netflix. Really excited to be part of the Plato community! I’ve been at Netflix for 8 years and have been a manager here for almost 5 years. When I first joined, I worked on a team that built out the Netflix UI for TV based applications. I recently transferred to the Delivery Engineering team where I lead the UI team that works on a continuous delivery and infrastructure management platform called Spinnaker (https://www.spinnaker.io/). Prior to Netflix, I was at Nvidia leading a team in Taiwan and China working on an automation framework for their GPUs. Looking forward to learning and sharing my experiences!

Hey, I'm available every Thursday at 1:00 AM (GMT)
