Maude is a Senior Staff Engineer at Slack where she is a founder and technical lead for the backend performance infrastructure team. She's responsible for large-scale load test tooling, performance regression monitoring, and successfully onboarding the world's largest companies to Slack. Over the past six years, she's helped the product scale from just 60,000 users per team to over 2 million. When she doesn't have her nose in a flamegraph, you can find Maude building strong, empathetic engineering cultures. 
In October 2020, Maude published "Refactoring at Scale" with O'Reilly Media, a blueprint for how technical leaders can successfully navigate large, complex refactors.
