Brian Grant

Principal Engineer
Brian is the co-Technical Lead of Google Kubernetes Engine, co-Chair of Kubernetes SIG Architecture, Kubernetes API approver, Kubernetes Steering Committee member, and CNCF Technical Oversight Committee member, where he's sponsored 11 CNCF projects (not including Kubernetes). His experience while technical lead of Google's internal container platform, Borg, motivated some of the key APIs in Kubernetes, such as Pods, labels, and watch. He started to work on the API design for what became Kubernetes around October 2013, before coding started, and has since at some point led numerous areas of the project, including API machinery, kubectl, workload APIs, scheduling, release, documentation, contributor experience, and many others.
