Website | @owen_omalley

Owen O’Malley is a software architect on Hadoop working for HortonWorks, a startup focusing on Hadoop development. Prior to cofounding HortonWorks, Owen and the rest of the HortonWorks team worked at Yahoo developing Hadoop. He has been contributing patches to Hadoop since before it was separated from Nutch and was the original chair of the Hadoop PMC. Before working on Hadoop, he worked on Yahoo Search’s WebMap project, which builds a graph of the known Web and applies many heuristics to the entire graph that control search. Prior to Yahoo, Owen wandered between testing (UCI), static analysis (Reasoning), configuration management (Sun), and software model checking (NASA). He holds a PhD in software engineering from the University of California, Irvine.
