Goranka Bjedov · Capacity Engineer · Facebook

Goranka makes Facebook run fast and efficiently. As a capacity engineer, she controls how to allocate all of the computers used on Facebook servers. She is also a tenured professor at Purdue University! She grew up in Yugoslavia where women are supported to be programmers and do math and passion for gaming prompted her to start coding when she was 13. She is most proud of building Look Back videos at Facebook and was amazed at the delight it brought people. Goranka says “when you see yourself getting comfortable then move on. You should always be on the edge. The field is changing on daily basis and if you are comfortable means you are not growing. You will become obsolete very quickly.”
