Nick is the Founder and CTO of Dagster Labs, the company behind Dagster, a popular open-source data orchestration platform.

Before Dagster Labs, Nick Schrock was a Principal Engineer and Director at Facebook from 2009 to 2017, where he founded the Product Infrastructure team and co-created GraphQL.

After cutting his teeth at Facebook, Nick Schrock pursued his passion for working on engineer pain points after hearing that data infrastructure was a big issue. He founded Dagster to address this issue, highlighting how quickly open-source projects were able to make an impact at legacy companies.

Dagster couldn’t come at a more critical time as data and ML engineering are beginning to drive both human and business decision-making.
