Julie is on a quest to build AI capable of doing things that humans find easy and today’s machines find hard, such as exploration, communication, creativity and accomplishing long-range goals. In 2014, she co-founded Order of Magnitude Labs to do just that. Julie spent the previous 10 years developing JVM server-side applications in a variety of environments, from startups to government institutions. Most notably, she was on the team that first brought Netflix to a variety of popular platforms and launched the service internationally. Along the way, Julie made several round trips between engineering and management. She has considered Scala her home language since 2012, while enjoying hardware hacking and occasional web development on the side.
