Vilas Veeraraghavan
Bill.com, Sr Director of Engineering

Vilas has spent his past work life at Comcast, Netflix and Walmart building high performance teams that focus their attention on automation, chaos engineering, CI/CD at scale and improving developer productivity across the enterprise by enabling engineers to do more with tools. He recently joined Bill.com to help drive engineering effectiveness and enable engineers to deliver better and reduce toil. 


High performing distributed/remote teams require a concerted effort to remain productive, healthy and happy while continuing to operate with excellence. In this talk, we will talk about how to set the right metrics to measure productivity and refactor team design, day-to-day work, onboarding process with a goal to stay nimble through constant changes to work environments, needs of the customer and a rapidly growing cloud native distributed software stack.
