Description

I've been pushing code to production since I was 15. Quick overview of my experience:

  • 2020 - Present: Co-founded a startup in the hospitality industry. Raised a pre-seed round, hired three FTE developers. Signed on 800 restaurants across the UK. This represents 1% market penetration. Led the engineering team in developing a web app and a mobile app, using best practices for CI/CD. Consistently won grants and awards. Ruby (Rails) and Python (Django), React/React Native and Typescript on AWS.

  • 2018 - 2020: Co-founded the first entirely student-run satellite development organisation in the UK. 50+ engineers, scientists, salespeople and operations people. Raised £500k from institutional investors. Developed satellite control software on top of a Linux-based real-time operating system, managing ten volunteer developers. The software components such as the radio interface, the storage engine, the camera interface and others interacted through an event-based messaging system. Rust, C, C++.

  • 2017: Developed a basic web portal where IB Diploma Programme students can interact. Sold access to this portal to UAE schools on a similar business model as Piazza. HTML, CSS, JS, Ruby (Rails).

  • 2016: Joined a small team developing auto nomous drones for the government sector in the UAE. Wrote a basic test suite for the flight operating software and computer vision algorithms. C++.

  • 2015: Wrote a homework management app for Android because I couldn’t find a well-designed app on the market. Java (Android), Ruby (Rails).

During my two stints as a founder, I learnt how to prioritise and deliver a high-quality product efficiently. Happy to take on any project involving a Rails backend, especially with mobile/web clients.
