I’m Felix Sargent, an Engineering Manager with years of experience working on high-throughput platforms at scale. I’ve been part of the larger tech community since 2008, and have driven industry-wide conversations around flexible product management, API design, managing technical debt, and building engineering teams. I believe teams work best when they feel safe, and are well equipped for their challenging work.

My specialties are backend product and engineering management, developer tools, cloud infrastructure, containers, and deployment pipelines. I’m great at taking existing platforms and scaling them up to be more reliable, secure, and performant. I love digging into obscure business logic and simplifying workflows. I’ve managed Engineering teams and Product teams and lead both with efficiency and empathy.
