    Wonop
    • Made a front end in React and TypeScript, enabling the customers to sign up, create natural language processes, and execute them on the back end.
    • Made the back end using Django, Django REST framework, and Python. The back end was integrated with Stripe and allowed social login.
    • Built a high-performance natural language engine in C++ with Python bindings using PyBind11.
    • Built a background worker using Celery that allowed the execution of the C++ code through a REST interface.
    • Created deployment manifests for Kubernetes and Docker images for the above components.
    • Created infrastructure for continuous integration and continuous delivery.

    • Created a crypto-currency wallet using React and Electron to enable users to interact with the Fetch.AI network. This wallet enabled users to send and receive tokens on the Fetch.AI network.
    • Created block explorer using Django, Django REST framework, and PostgreSQL that kept a log of all transactions that had happened on the network.
    • Made a transpiler that could transpile Solidity code into the Fetch.AI native smart contract language Etch.
    • Led the codebase development that allowed the company to raise $6,000,000 in less than 60 seconds.
    • Managed the planning with the leadership team and oversaw code development.
    • Led four teams with different responsibilities inside the company.
    • Contributed to all parts of the codebase both on the front end, back ends, and the blockchain.

  • Senior Software Engineer

    2018 - 2018
    Fetch.AI
    • Designed an MVP crypto-currency wallet using React and Electron. This MVP had the ability to let users perform simple transactions and searches.
    • Designed the blockchain architecture and created an MVP using C++.
    • Wrote the first version of a vectorized math library based on fixed points in C++. This code used SSE and AVX intrinsics alongside template unrolling to optimize the code on the assembly level.
    • Mentored junior developers to ensure high code quality.
    • Oversaw the development and created the initial system for code reviews.
