Joseph Lynch
Software Engineer, Yelp

Joseph Lynch is a software engineer for Yelp who focuses on building data store and service infrastructure. Joey is a core contributor to Yelp’s data store platform, which has allowed Yelp to go from a primarily MySQL data tier to a polyglot data tier including Elasticsearch, Cassandra, and Zookeeper. He loves pushing the edge of how Yelp uses DevOps tools to automate infrastructure and never met a problem he didn’t want to automate away. When not wrangling clusters of data stores, Joey enjoys building service discovery, reliable communication, fast deployment, and monitoring into Yelp’s SOA.
