Work Experience

Software Engineer

2023 - 2024
  • Revamped the Go SDK from scratch to support various authentication flows for Okta.
  • Implemented passwordless login options using email and phone number and revamped standard OAuth 2 authorization code flow.
  • Implemented the 1st ever decentralized authentication mechanism using users' Ethereum keys via a wallet like Metamask. This empowered users to authenticate with their Ethereum keys through Okta, eliminating dependence on centralized mechanisms.
Technologies: Go, OAuth, OAuth 2, SDKs

Software Engineer

2022 - 2023
Reddit, Inc.
  • Set up Prometheus monitoring services for the ads serving team, helping them gain insights on metrics. Set up alerting and monitoring on top of those metrics, decreasing issue turnaround time by around 30% compared to a sentry-based alerting system.
  • Prepared, discussed, and led a company-wide initiative to migrate from thrift to gRPC communication. Reduced latency by 5% across ads service on an average, better load balancing across all the pods due to client-side load balancing.
  • Designed and led the integration test framework for the core ads services to increase the test coverage and discover bugs in the system. After the implementation, we were able to decrease the incidents by 10%.

Software Engineer

2021 - 2022
  • Reduced the order failure rates by around 27% by setting up the proper alerting and monitoring using Datadog.
  • Optimized the flow for menu availability, reducing latency and increasing throughput by almost 40%.
  • Oversaw the onboarding of new restaurants, which included creating a testing environment to integrate and publish the menus for the restaurant online.
  • Scaled the system to handle around 45,000 orders daily for McDonald's restaurants.

Software Engineer

2020 - 2021
  • Acted as a founding engineer to build the entire social and passwordless login system for the users using Auth0.
  • Created a compliance-aligned verification system using 3rd-party verifiers like Middesk and Alloy.
  • Designed and implemented the transaction models and transfer service, which facilitates the intrabank and ACH transaction functionality.
Technologies: Go, Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS), QLDB, Gin-Gonic, Technical Leadership


2019 - 2020
  • Developed an iOS Auto Layout feature and lazy loading of components to improve the performance of the flagship iOS app.
  • Implemented MVC architecture for the iOS app and used in-app storage solutions such as Core Data and Realm.
  • Built the components and layout of the iOS application of the marketplace used by hundreds of customers all around the country. Completed software version control through Git.
Technologies: Go, MVC Design, Git, Apache Kafka, Back-end, JavaScript


2017 - 2018
  • Founded a startup in the rental space whose goal was to provide a common platform for the renter and owner to carry out deals. Developed the business and revenue model and onboarded customers onto the platform.
  • Built the platform using Golang, GCP, and task queues. Implemented an easy-to-checkout pipeline for customers. Built the platform using microservice architecture and technologies such as Go, GCP, and NoSQL.
  • Built idempotent APIs and cron jobs configuration using Redis for caching techniques.

Pay Later POC

Pay Later is a POC application for leading fintech company Simpl (https://getsimpl.com/), enabling users to make immediate transactions with partnered merchants. Users can pay later (monthly) based on their billing. The idea behind this project was to model the architecture, designing the database models and microservices. The project was entirely built using Golang.

Decentralized Storage

A project that leverages an interplanetary file system to store files in a decentralized network and track and maintain the files' metadata on the Ethereum blockchain. It uses ganache and Go-Ethereum for development purposes.

Logs Analytics Using Elasticsearch

The project extracts logs from a huge log file of 16 GBs in seconds. The purpose of the project is to develop a Command Line Interface (CLI) tool that extracts logs efficiently from log files within a given range. The logs are then fed into an elasticsearch cluster for faster and more efficient querying and management. Hot-cold node architecture is used for time-based indexes. The project was built using Golang and features out-of-the-box elements such as synchronization primitives, memory pools, goroutines, and channels.

Twitter Mock Application

A Twitter-like back-end app built using Golang, MySQL, and GraphQL for querying. The app can log in/signup. A user can post a Twitter-like two-sentence text post, follow another user, and view their timeline. The app is deployed using Docker Compose into multiple containers of the GraphQL server and database server.
