Speaker Details

Jose Avila
VP of Engineering, Crowdstar

Jose (known to all as Tachu) started out at CrowdStar 7 years ago as Director of Operations. In this role, he oversaw the architecture and operations of a portfolio of Facebook apps that reached 12 million daily active users. He was responsible for scaling these apps on a homogeneous infrastructure architecture.

Now, as VP of Engineering, Tachu leads both development and operations for Covet Fashion, one of the top grossing apps in both iTunes and Google Play. His team is focused on deploying infrastructure capable of handling a high amount of users and of rendering 1 million “looks” in the app daily. Once again, his challenge is to adapt the current infrastructure so that it is scalable, portable and resilient for the future.  

Tachu held engineering positions at Kickapps Corporation/Yuku, Cisco and Ezboard before joining CrowdStar. Tachu studied finance at Universidad Francisco Marroquin in Guatemala and is an avid football (as in soccer) fan.
