Scaling Marketplaces at Thumbtack



Nate Kupp shares some of Thumbtack’s key learnings on their journey to scale: from a PHP/PostgreSQL monolith with a self-managed Hadoop cluster, to Dockerized microservices paired with managed/serverless data infrastructure, and their future with fully-managed systems.


Nate Kupp leads the Technical Infrastructure team at Thumbtack where he has worked on scaling both engineering teams and infrastructure to support Thumbtack's rapidly growing marketplaces. Before joining Thumbtack, he spent a few years at Apple, where he built out data infrastructure for iOS and watchOS battery life analytics.
