Resume

Software Developer

Raven

January 2019 - Present (2 years 8 months)

Raven is an IDE for Go, written in C++ and heavily optimized.

  • Developed IDE for Go. Wrote window manager, vim keybindings, jump to definition, autocomplete, parameter hints, find all usages, auto format/lint on save, build and run, and more. Involuntarily memorized the Go grammar. 
  • Optimized code to death. Wrote custom parser, code analysis, and OpenGL renderer. Wrote several specialized memory allocators (calling malloc all the time is way too slow).

Senior Software Engineer

Opendoor

August 2018 - January 2019 (5 months)

  • Worked with the “Seller Experience” product team. Worked on a React-based app where home sellers managed the entire sale in one place, including sign pending documents, view escrow status, and upload necessary assets.
  • Moved to Open Listings team, which Opendoor acquired in late 2018. Worked on (newly christened) “Buyer Experience” product team, building a great user experience for buyers to browse and send offers to homes for sale in the area.

Senior Software Engineer

Armory

February 2018 - August 2018 (6 months)

Armory.io is a B2B startup that helps large companies install and manage a Spinnaker installation.

  • Worked on various tools to facilitate this.
  • Developed an easy installer script for customers to install Spinnaker onto their existing Kubernetes setup in minutes instead of hours.
  • Built React-based tools for customers to customize their Spinnaker installations with an intuitive UI, instead of tediously editing their .yml configuration files.
  • Worked on a “pipelines as code” feature that allowed users to programmatically specify a Spinnaker pipeline as a source-controlled file inside their repositories.
  • Added features upstream into OSS Spinnaker that were critical to Armory, such as the Spinnaker Kayenta integration with Datadog.
  • Created an “Insights” dashboard for customers to view their deployments and SLA failures in one place, enabling them to correlate their service outages with specific times.

Software Developer

Independent

September 2013 - February 2018 (4 years 5 months)

  • Built a web-based tool for annotating 3D lidar data for a self-driving car company, increasing throughput of their ML data pipeline.
  • Developed a modular, extensible adapter for a ridesharing company to make API calls to vehicles, allowing engineers to treat the vehicle as a black-box interface, increasing engineering output.
  • Created a generic framework for a voice analytics company to import call data from customers' existing call systems. This enabled them to offer a stronger user experience to customers, who could now log in and see all of their existing call data in the dashboard.
  • Built a gift-recommendation app for IBM to demonstrate their new Watson technology. They launched it at SF Westfield mall over Christmas mounted on an iPad kiosk.
  • Worked on various contract projects for about 50 clients.
