Adam Lazur
Production Engineering Manager, Facebook


Adam has spent the past 8 years diffusing the firehose of traffic for some of the biggest web sites on the internet. He has wholesale replaced the front end load balancing architecture on a massively growing site while it was serving… twice.

Adam is currently a Production Engineering Manager in the Traffic team at Facebook. He and his team build simple, reliable, and scalable components that adapt to the demands of the fastest moving site on the internet.

When Adam is not evangelizing the tenets of the UNIX philosophy, he is a dedicated father and amateur racing daydreamer.
