Andrew Chalfant, AB'06
Engineer, Facebook
I was a true believer in the academic bent of U Chicago, and so graduated with a political science degree and no firm idea of what to do with myself after graduation. I eventually abandoned my default plans, becoming an ex-future-lawyer, and applied myself to learning all things computers. I have now been at Facebook for nearly five years working as an engineer on high scale infrastructure; including data systems, ads backends, and most recently messaging and real time infrastructure.
