Ruby on Rails/JS Engineer

Private information
Hire me


A software engineer with 4 years of experience working with Rails, JS and PostgreSQL. Also have reasonable knowledge of C++, Java, Python and MongoDB.
​I am a natural problem solver possessing excellent communication skills, interpersonal skills & a right mix of empathy. My hobbies are reading, reading, reading and chess. I can think in English, Urdu and my mother-tongue and can communicate at different levels in Turkish, Pashto, Punjabi, Arabic, Persian, Spanish, French and Hindi as well.

My primary motivations are better pay and better work environment. Living in a third world country while possessing skills worthy enough of developed nations is harsh. Any individual or organization that gives me a chance to step up will definitely have my loyalty and benefits of my skill set. It counts.

Challenges faced:
In a software engineer's career, every working day is prone to big challenges but some of the memorable ones I encountered are:
- Problem: Remove bugs and deploy for the first time ever in less than 48 hours in a challenge given by my company CTO, having close to 1 year of experience.
Solution: Removing bugs was the easier part that I was familiar with. I had to learn about everything from scratch about web servers (passenger, nginx) and installing ubuntu remotely and then configuring the web server on it. They were rough 48 hours with only 3 hours of sleep but I managed to learn and implement with success at the end.
- Problem: Learn and implement GTM with 90+ event triggers and 20+ data points with every trigger to track user behavior in a website open to 200+ million users while no one in my organization of 200+ engineers had experience of using GTM.
Solution: I learnt about implementation of GTM in 3 days, implemented the whole event triggers required (2000+ lines of code) in 3 weeks and became the focal person for user tracking in my team (communicating with 10+ executives).
- Problem: Through monitoring our website on New Relic, we discovered that our marketplace site had become considerably slower after our recent releases and new increased traffic (due to sale).
Solution: I, along with our team's solutions architect, searched (through) and pinpointed the area slowing down the website and cached its content in a pragmatic way to improve the loading time by 160%.

Moreover, I have had the pleasure of working with a company in Italy. I can fetch references from them.
​Hoping to connect with you and find ways to collaborate for mutual benefit.
I eagerly look forward to hearing from you.
