Gio has been working with data, architecting systems, and leading teams of engineers for over a decade. At Etsy he’s a Staff Software Engineer leading the Search Ranking Team. He’s focused on Search from the ground up: infrastructure, ranking and machine-learned relevance, diversity, fairness, autosuggest, faceting, navigation, experimentation, etc. His work sits at the crossroads of a number of disciplines so he spends his days collaborating with infrastructure engineers, data scientists, analysts, product managers, user researchers, and taxonomists.
Prior to working at Etsy, Gio worked at CapitalIQ where he designed, built, and maintained a multi-terabyte database, real-time processing-system, and search engine for globally-sourced financial reports.
