I am an engineer, currently working on the backend at GitLab

Distributed systems and infrastructure topics interest me and that is what I hope to work on in the future.

I love working in small, autonomous teams, with a focus on good software engineering practices. Having experience working and studying remotely, I can work both independently, or while pairing.

Industry Experience (2013 - present)

Backend Engineer at GitLab | June 2019 - present

Platform Engineer at Travis CI | May 2016 - May 2019

At Travis CI, I build the Travis API and other backend systems in Ruby and Elixir. Most of my work is open source. Some of my important projects were:

Backend and Infrastructure Engineer at Blacklane | December 2014 - April 2016

Some of my important projects were:

Backend Engineer at early stage start-ups | May 2013 - November 2014

For a couple of years I worked at early stage start-ups - HowDo and Smart Checkups, where I learnt to take up several responsibilities in a small team. I wrote the Sinatra API at HowDo and worked on the web front-end at SmartCheckups.

I also worked at a social media marketing analytics consultancy, TD Reply, with clients like Coca Cola and Volkswagen. I worked on the Ruby backend, responded to outages and worked on provisioning infrastructure with Ansible.

Earlier Experience (2012 - 2013)

I started out as an engineering graduate, learning from amazing engineers through internships at 6WunderKinder, SlideShare and also participated in Google Summer of Code.
