About me

Dio Phung

I’m an engineering leader and lifelong learner with a mission to transform lives with technology. Over the last 15+ years, I have been leading teams to build large and scalable platforms and products for millions of users.

Currently, I am at AWS (Amazon Web Services) as a member of the engineering leadership team. My works involve platform engineering, distributed systems, micro frontend, micro-service, cloud architecture, data analytics and AI/ML. I partnered with Product Management, Customer Experience, Developer Experience leadership to drive multi-year roadmap.

Prior to AWS, I was at DocuSign and Tesla engineering team, doing similar platform works. In the past, I worked in several startups.

My area of interest includes high-scalability distributed systems, large-scale system architecture, disruptive technologies, data mining, and the rise of Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning.

I graduated from National University of Singapore with Bachelors and Master’s degrees in computer science and from Stanford GSB with executive education.

What gets me out of bed every morning, is the chance to work with brilliant talents who do not just care deeply about their works but also care about other people. I’m truly grateful to work with these amazing people and I’m lucky to have some of them as my mentors.


Mentorship is a deeply meaningful experience for me. That’s why I’m actively involved with Vietnamese Professional Network to help promising talents grow their career in Silicon Valley. I am also part of PlatoHQ network where I learn from other industry leaders, and I worked with the wonderful team at steamforvietnam.org to help with their educational mission.

In addition, I’m working on a platform to democratize the future of A.I. development. I live in the sunny Bay Area, California, feel free to grab a coffee with me to chat.

Last but not least, I am a competitive badminton player. I train weekly so if you are into badminton – join me in a game of badminton like this.
