Work experience

At Meeshkan

As the second most senior employee at Meeshkan, I've been actively involved in defining vision and mission for the company.

With my colleagues I've created front-ends, backends, command-line tools, databases, logging, monitoring as well as analytics solutions to power our build-measure-learn cycle.

We've written code mostly in TypeScript and Python, using tools such as PyTorch, Amazon SageMaker, GraphQL, Next.js, Gatsby, GraphQL and Prisma.

At IndoorAtlas

I developed radio positioning algorithms using Matlab and implemented them in production using Java and Scala with Apache Spark and Cassandra. I also lead the bluetooth positioning project.

I stored algorithm performance metrics to ElasticSearch and created a front-end UI for comparing algorithms.

I was the Data team lead responsible for processing high-volume end-user positioning data and exposing data through a REST API and front-end UI.
