I am an enthusiastic (software) engineer with passion to learn and build new things. Currently, I work at Google in ads infrastructure. I am passionate about computer science and in particular programming languages and machine learning.
I have done extensive backend and frontend work and I would say that I am a full stack developer:
- Developing Backend APIs in C++ and Java
- Working with MapReduce systems
- Working with Databases such as MySQL, MongoDB, Google’s BigTable and Dremel
- Developing HTTP server to serve APIs in C++
- Developing HTTP server in NodeJS
- Experience with (Google’s) Cloud infrastructure
- Mobile development(Android)
I am also well experienced with release management, bug triaging, code review process, and distributed version control systems such as git. I have successfully hosted three interns during my career so far. I work well with my teammates and other teams to reach the goals that are set for us and company.
And… Linux is the only operating system I use for everything computing.
