Having worked in companies like Practo, Amazon, and Unacademy, I have gathered experience building products at scale while also taking something from zero to one.
Want to launch and scale your startup, I can help. In innumerable ways.
The right tech stack could become your competitive advantage when you start up or are in your next growth phase. By understanding your current stage, team expertise, and plans, I can suggest the right tech stack that powers up your startup.
Before you even hit a PMF, it is a sin to over-engineer tech. This is something I have learned the hard way while I was working on a side hustle. With all the lessons I learned, I will help you test the waters in minimum time and at a minimal cost.
Building services that scale is no piece of cake because there are hundreds of decisions and thousands of pitfalls to navigate. With all my experience, I can help you design scalable services with the right tech stack and design.
When the product takes off, you will want to replace your legacy monolith with much more scalable microservices. Splitting your monolith into microservices is trickier than it seems, and I can make this transition smoother than the butter.
In my last ~9 years of experience, I have worked at D. E. Shaw, Practo, Amazon, and Unacademy; and have built systems, services, and platforms that scaled to billions.
Post my masters in CSE from IIIT Hyderabad I joined D. E. Shaw for a short stint of 2 months, before moving to Practo and working there as a Platform Engineer, building and owning close to 8 different microservices. Post Practo I worked at Amazon on their primary mission-critical E-Commerce Database and built Data Pipelines that cold tiered the stale data.
After quitting Amazon in 2018, I joined Unacademy as their first Technical Architect and there I designed, built, managed, and scaled services like Search, Notification, Logging, Deployment Engine, and many more. I have now transitioned into the role of a Sr. Engineering Manager, leading the Site Reliability vertical.
In January 2020, I started my newsletter where I write and share an essay about programming languages internals, deep dives on some super-clever algorithms, and few tips on building scalable distributed systems. The newsletter currently has close to 2000+ subscribers.
Hijack my calendar and pick a time slot that works for you and let's get talking.
