Blanca Garcia Gil is a Principal Systems Engineer at BBC. She currently works on a team whose aim is to provide a reliable platform at petabyte scale for data engineering and machine learning. She leads a team focused on improving access to data and making sure the data warehouse is performant and reliable for business critical workloads.

Prior to the BBC she has had a variety of roles from developing web applications for an agency, mobile prototyping (before smartphones came about!), developing a content management system or writing highly scalable APIs. She always enjoyed working closer to the backend and since she started developing in the Cloud she took on the challenge of learning about infrastructure. This has led to her deciding to move to an infrastructure automation, performance and reliability role.

In her free time she loves traveling, reading, swimming and trying out different foods. She has been learning machine sewing and clothes making. She has lived in Spain, United States, Australia and is currently based in London, UK.
