Headshot of Corban Mailloux

Hey! I’m Corban Mailloux. I’m a senior software engineer at CloudHealth by VMware in Boston, MA where I build and maintain several components of our SaaS platform. I’m particularly focused on scaling our data ingestion pipelines, including one system running more than a million jobs per minute. Before CloudHealth, I was a software engineering intern at EnerNOC (now “Enel X”) with the identity and access management team.

I’m an alumnus of Rochester Institute of Technology where I majored in software engineering with a focus on computing security. I also minored in communications.

I enjoy riding electric unicycles, especially my current favorite: my KingSong 16X. When not in the middle of a pandemic, I frequently go rock climbing indoors and out.

At home I train our two cats (Maya and Sasha) to do various tricks including jumping through hoops, walking upright, and heeling by my side. You can follow our progress and see lots of wonderful cat pictures on @theladies_sashaandmaya’s Instagram .

As you’ll see in my projects, I like to work on home automation projects and generally enjoy DIY electronics. For my home automation system, I use Home Assistant, an open-source, Python-based platform that integrates with just about everything. You can find my complete Home Assistant configuration on Github, with documentation of some of the major parts in the repo’s wiki.
