How to Contact Me

  • Please only contact me if you can offer something specific in one of my preferred focus areas, in an organization with values aligned with mine.
  • Please contact me only via email, and only at the address listed at the top of the page.

My Preferred Focus Areas

  • Computer networking
  • Distributed systems
  • Hardware-accelerated computing
  • Operating system kernel development
  • Real-time communication backends
  • Datastores, databases, and filesystems
Also note that I am specifically not interested in web development or quantitative finance. And while I have some experience with Machine Learning, it is not something I'm actively interested in.

What I Value in an Organization

  • Software Engineering Focus: I am mostly interested only in organizations whose primary products are computer software or hardware, and where the majority of the employees are software engineers.
  • Contribution to Open Source: I would highly prefer to work on a project that is either open source itself, or involves active contribution to open source projects as a part of the job.
  • Financial Stability: I prefer organizations already making profit, with well charted funding and expansion plan for the next 3-5 years.
  • International Presence: Presence in the US, Canada, Western Europe, and India is quite important to me.
