Currently a BigData architect at DreamLab, Piotr is designing and building data-driven products for one of the largest Central European media hubs, aiming to solve business problems and get value out of vast quantities of data. In doing so, he touches all layers of modern BigData stack, from Hadoop (on premise), Hive/Impala, Spark, through Kafka, Storm, Druid, all the way to Tableau. Piotr specialises in online stream analytics, which he sees as the future of Data Engineering and is a committer to Druid ecosystem. Also, he hates buzzwords and loves building distributed systems. Ends up using many of those buzzwords in these systems as a result. 🙂 Previously in various capacity at Google, CERN and Base CRM.
