  • Senior Software Engineer

    2012 - 2016
    Senzari, Inc.
    • Wrote the automation scripting for distributed tasks, using the Luigi library, written in Python - mostly for fetching a musician's social info and ingesting it into a big database for further usage/exposition.
    • Wrote, extended, and helped maintain a global Data Access Object for handling music's queries for playlists, musician's metadata, and musical recommendations.
    • Briefly wrote Hadoop routines for ingesting and analyzing XML/JSON data from specific clients/providers into a database using Titan + Cassandra.
    • Extended and maintained a playlist and music engine written in Django using Tastypie to expose the logic as a REST service.
    • Wrote a small REST service using Django and PostgreSQL to create music profiles of clients/users, for later consumption of the rest of the services pipeline (see the Portfolio for the rest of the details).
    • Wrote a set of micro/small services running on top of NodeJS to handle incoming requests, aggregate/filter/preprocess them and then pass them to a backend service (either a REST service, or a database).

    • Helped to implement the Mono's Class Library (the base library layer of the .NET reimplementation, written in C#).
    • Helped briefly with improving the MonoDevelop IDE port of Windows.
    • Implemented some features of the C#'s compiler for the 2.0 version of the language (properties accessor modifiers, friendly assemblies/libraries, external alias qualifiers).
    • Implemented some routines for the Reflection layer of the Mono framework, which expose the metadata of the running assembly/binary for further loading, binding, and inspecting (mostly done in the C side).
