Dev Bala, EMBA

I am the Vice President of Product Management for Sentropy Technologies – a startup in Palo Alto, CA that is focused on building machine learning platforms to make the internet safer by helping companies detect and defend their platforms against malicious users and content.

I’ve spent the past 17 years at Facebook, Google, and Microsoft, leading teams in various roles and categories across the enterprise and consumer technology landscape.   I’ve built products such as the Facebook Portal, the Google / Nest IoT platform, Google Docs, and Microsoft Outlook.  Technology is my passion and I have been fortunate enough to learn from the best leaders at the most influential companies in the industry.

I have a BS and MS in Computer Science from Washington University in St. Louis, as well as an MBA from MIT.  I’ve also been a Computer Science professor at Washington University.  Finally, I am currently the Assistant Coach for Men’s Lacrosse at Stanford University (where I’ve been since 2010).  I live in Silicon Valley with my wife and two young children.
