Number 23: Facebook’s Aparna Ramani
Did she dream of doing great things, just like you? Of course! And then she worked hard and now Aparna Ramani is the director of Engineering, Realtime Data at Facebook. She runs the team responsible for real-time data processing and analytics at Facebook, which is one of the major technologies that Facebook uses in Newsfeed. These tools are also how Facebook figures out which new features users like the most. Aparna’s team is all an Exabyte-scale lake of big data — which is all kinds of new, fancy and exciting technology!
Prior to Facebook, Aparna led product development at Cloudera, the unicorn big-data startup.
