Hello everyone, I’m Matthew Sanabria.

I’m a Software Engineer specializing in distributed systems, observability, and scaling infrastructure. I’m known for expert debugging skills, exceptional leadership, and using my breadth and depth of knowledge to unblock others and add value in minimal context situations. Let’s talk about developing backend systems in Go and Rust, writing frontend logic using TypeScript and your framework of choice, or anything Linux, containers, and infrastructure.

I’m a mentor that’s taught and upleveled hundreds of aspiring and current engineers, helping them understand complex technical concepts, land their first job in the industry, and earn promotions. Let’s talk about the difference between mentorship and sponsorship, how to break down complex concepts for others, and raising the bar of technical excellence.

I’m a speaker that’s able to give that last-minute, unplanned talk at your conference because I have a ton of experience to talk about and I’m not afraid to grab the microphone. Let’s talk about community building, bringing your real self to the conversation, and communicating with clarity, honesty, integrity, and kindness.

If you’re the type of person that needs to see credentials before you’ll believe in someone, then here are some of mine.

  • Extensive experience across the stack as a Software Engineer, Support Engineer, and Site Reliability Engineer.
  • Created and taught the Ultimate Terraform course at Ardan Labs.
  • Served as the Mentoring Chair for GoBridge.
  • Authored concepts and exercises for the Go track on Exercism.
  • Created an entirely new curriculum for the IT 340 course at New Jersey Institute of Technology.
  • Mentored and trained aspiring engineers in the 100Devs bootcamp.

Outside of technology, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful family, traveling, working out, reading books, working on my next house project, riding my motorcycle, and training with firearms.

Thank you for reading! Don’t hesitate to reach out if you want to chat!
