Co-Founder and CEO
Before co-founding Qubole, the world’s first cloud-based autonomous data platform-as-a-service, Ashish ran Facebook’s Data Infrastructure team. Under his leadership, the Facebook team built one of the largest data processing and analytics platforms in the world. This platform achieved not just the bold aim of making data accessible to analysts, engineers and data scientists, but drove the “big data” revolution. In the process of scaling Facebook’s big data infrastructure, he helped drive the creation of a host of tools, technologies and templates that are used industry wide today. Ashish also contributed to the development of the Apache Hive data warehouse infrastructure project for Hadoop.
