Max Stoiber was born and raised in a small town, just outside of Vienna, Austria. From a young age, his biggest influence was his mother, who left her job to start her own business as a medical expert in the courts. It has been inspiring for Max to watch her find her place in the world, and to box through everything life threw at her. He still finds great inspiration from that today. And, very early on, he was focused on doing something on his own.
When he’s not staring at his computer screens, he likes to get outside and boulder with this friends. He got into the sport through other fellow geeks, and he feels that bouldering in Vienna is pretty much a nerd sport. He’s also a trained skiing instructor, and really into coffee, as a certified barista.
Prior to his current venture, Max has had some great success in the open source world, and building a chat tool called Spectrum – which was a platform for community chat. Eventually, Github acquired the product, and opened a whole new set of problems around architecting a large scale, real time system. Through a difficult period of learning and service outages, he learned and figured out a better way to reduce traffic up to 95% with edge caching.
