Dave Cliffe

Dave Cliffe

Dave is a software engineer who adopted a more peaceful role on the Product team at PagerDuty. Before PagerDuty, Dave worked in cloud computing at Microsoft (Windows Azure) and at launching their Grocery business. Frequently, he wonders which is scarier: being on-call during an outage or being a parent. The debate continues.

Sarah Kowalik

Sarah Kowalik is an Operations Engineer at PagerDuty. Previously an Ubuntu & Kubuntu Core Developer, Sarah is currently automating the DevOps world with ChatOps. Having moved across the world, she’s becoming an expert at standing on her head.

Sean Walberg

Sean Walberg

Sean is a problem solver: a software developer that loves applying software principles to infrastructure automation and web applications. Sean wanted to program most of his life, realized he didn’t like it during his first job, spent 13 years as a network guy that wrote a lot of code, joined an awesome web startup as a web developer, and has rediscovered his joy for software development. After that ended, he moved into a more devops type role where he can have his feet in both camps. He’s currently with a consulting company that’s responsible for the infrastructure and applications at a large American sporting league.
