I'm Nathan Marz. I'm most well-known for creating the Apache Storm project and writing a book about the Lambda Architecture as a foundation for large-scale data systems. Storm has been adopted by many of the world's largest companies, including Yahoo!, Microsoft, Alibaba, Taobao, WebMD, Spotify, Yelp, and many more.

I was the Lead Engineer at BackType before BackType was acquired by Twitter in July of 2011. At Twitter I started a core infrastructure team that supports countless critical applications throughout the company. I left Twitter in March of 2013 to start my own company (currently in stealth).

I'm always happy to give advice or connect with people doing interesting work. You can contact me directly at nathan@nathanmarz.com.
