Dave Sliwa

Director, Software Engineering at Adobe Systems


Dave Sliwa is the current Director of Software Engineering at Adobe Systems. Dave has been with Adobe since February 2011 and in their current role since February 2022. In their role, Dave leads two engineering teams, Data Landing and Compute, that support Adobe's Experience Platform.

Adobe's Experience Platform allows enterprise customers to consolidate all their digital marketing touchpoint data streams into a single platform and provides tools to give customers insights into their data that they cannot get anywhere else. Attribution, Unified Profile, Unified Identity, Machine Learning, Query Service, and other applications are all powered by AEP.

The Data Landing team is responsible for ingesting Adobe's internal solution data along with Adobe's external customer first and third party data. Each day, terabytes of data are ingested, validated, cataloged, and made available to customers and solutions within minutes. This highly skilled team uses Spark, Scala, Java, Kafka, Iceberg, and other big data technologies to ensure data is ingested on time with no data loss.

The Compute team provides a gateway to allow internal and solution compute jobs to run on several platforms with consistent experience. Today, the compute gateway team supports an internal DCOS spark execution cluster along with a Databricks integration to execute millions of daily on-demand workloads.

Dave Sliwa has a BA in Management Information Sciences from The University of Iowa Tippie College of Business.

Their manager is Bryan Latten, Senior Director, Software Engineering. Some of their coworkers include Brian Watson - Director, Software Engineering, Malay Sankar Barik - Senior Software Engineering Manager, and Nipun Nair - Director, Engineering, Adobe Experience Platform.
