I started programming with C in 2006 and the most complex program I wrote that year was a Tower of Hanoi algorithm along with a DOS based graphics screen that showed the disks moving step-by-step that looked something like this. I qualified for INOI in 2006 by brute forcing a O(n3) solution in the qualifying round, although I did not know what "algorithms" were at that age so I terribly failed the training camp for the International Olympiad. I graduated with Computer Science in 2011.
I started my career building and maintaining web applications and backend systems for Sokrati. I was also part of the oncall rotation team and I got exposure to a lot of internal tools for deployment, monitoring and end-to-end testing.
At Birst (later acquired by Infor), I was building backend systems and APIs. I was actively involved in devops and helped improve and scale production infrastructure. Led multiple teams before moving on.
I was a Backend Engineer and then eventually the Head of Engineering at Novo, a fintech startup building products for small and medium businesses in the US. I led the engineering team in building features and core infrastructure from Seed to Series A.
Currently I am a Staff Engineer at Postman, building an API development platform loved by developers all around the world.
