Will Murphy's CV

Current Interests / Introduction

I’ve worked on, and love to work on, a wide variety of technologies and products. I love a challenge, and I love shipping a feature that makes life fundamentally easier for users; projects are most rewarding when they deliver increased happiness and reduced frustration to real humans. I also find mentoring new engineers especially rewarding.

In terms of technology, I’m most interested in Linux containers (e.g. Docker), Rust and Go, and serverless and containerization technologies. But for me it’s about the people and the outcomes, not the tools.
