Hello, I'm DENİZ ALTINBÜKEN.
I'm a Software Engineer in the Technical Infrastructure team at
I completed my Ph.D. at Cornell University Department of Computer Science
My work is focused on building very large-scale distributed systems.
In my work, I first focus on understanding and defining the bits and
pieces of what makes complicated systems work. Once a strong theoretical
basis is established, I love designing and implementing large and
complicated distributed systems that balance simplicity,
maintainability, scalability, reliability, performance, and strong
In addition to my technical work, I serve as PC member in Distributed
Systems Conferences, mentor students and junior engineers, and
generally volunteer to spread the idea that there are many different
ways to excel at what you do, and one does not necessarily have to
follow the currently accepted recipe for success.
