Melissa Benua

Melissa Benua has worked in nearly every software development role—dev, test, DevOps, and program management—at companies big and small and somewhere in between. She's created and run high-availability, high-quality services for PlayFab, Bing, Cortana, and Xbox One, and now for mParticle's enormous data platform. Melissa discovered her love of massively scaled systems while growing Microsoft's Bing back end, where she honed the art of keeping highly available, complex systems up while undergoing significant code churn. Now an engineering leader with mParticle, she’s passionate about not only maximizing efficiency in her product code and in her developer tools, but also sharing best practices among colleagues and with the DevTestSecOps world at large.
