📖 Summary

Director of Software Development @ Amazon I led a globally distributed team of ~100 engineers, development managers and program/product managers to build software systems that enable optimal planning and execution of Amazon’s Line Haul Freight Transportation network. The systems enable optimal route planning, vehicle scheduling, and execution of the vehicle runs to move items between Amazon warehouses, sortation centers, delivery stations, and vendor locations using different modes of transportation (trucks, planes, rail, ships). We built high volume, low latency, and high availability services which handled thousands of requests per second, made business decisions impacting billions of dollars a year, integrated with a network of small and large carriers worldwide, and improved delivery experience for millions of online shoppers. From November 2014 to July 2016 (1 year 9 months) SeattleVP of Engineering @ Postmates Inc. Postmates is disrupting local commerce by providing a marketplace where consumers can purchase goods from any local restaurant or store, and local couriers deliver the goods to their home in minutes. Postmates has unlocked on-demand local shopping — providing consumers the convenience of super fast delivery for the largest selection of goods (anything in the whole city!); the benefit and scale of e-commerce for local merchants; and more flexible work for couriers. From the love shown by millions of customers in 300 US cities; to the hundreds of millions of dollars that our investors have trusted us with; to 2M+ orders (and growing) that we deliver every month -- Postmates' success story is one that I am proud to be part of.I lead the worldwide engineering team, having tripled it in last year to ~120 engineers now, developing all technology for Postmates. This includes mobile and web applications for our buyers, sellers and couriers, backend services to power these applications, data science and machine learning systems (e.g. for predicting fraudulent transactions), algorithms to optimally match buyer demand to fulfillment supply, and engineering infrastructure like logging and monitoring services and build systems. From July 2016 to March 2018 (1 year 9 months) San Francisco Bay AreaDirector of Software Development @ eBay I led the team building "Services Development Infrastructure" for eBay Marketplaces Services. This is a real-time monitoring, anomaly-detection, and auto-recovery system. The system automatically collects a large amount of data (~1GB/s) from various eBay services, aggregates it and slices it in millions of time series, does automatic anomaly detection on the data, raises alerts, and attempts to do auto-recovery for certain class of issues. The system works in real-time – and uses highly efficient algorithms for processing & storing the large stream of data. The backend system is built using Java, using Cassandra for storage. The front-end includes web-UI, and the iOS/Android mobile apps.In addition, I led the team building the Shopping Cart & Checkout services for, and delivered >$250M of revenue (GMB) growth from shopping-cart innovations. Technologically, in one line, we built a front-end UI using the latest browser based technologies powered by a distributed java-services based highly-scalable backend.Key highlights of my tenure in eBay include:- Led hiring efforts for eBay Seattle in 2013, and built a brand new team of ~20 developers & managers in ~7 months.

The system is battle tested, already being used & appreciated by >40 services across eBay.- Delivered products using a variety of technologies – including high-scale backend services written in Java, data storage solutions using Cassandra & Oracle, web-applications and mobile applications for iOS & Android.- Delivered >10 company-wide trainings/talks to junior and senior managers on various leadership competencies.

The tool, designed using the object oriented paradigm, uses an embedded server to communicate with its Java based client. My role was to design the tool and write the embedded server. The coding was done in C++, using Tornado and Visual C++ as development environments. 2) Worked on the low level design of 'CDMA channel management', an internal network management module of Halibut BTS software. The module was responsible for managing (fault handling / allocating / deallocating) all the CDMA channels available in the subsystem. The design was an object oriented one, with a proposed implementation in C++.3) Worked on integration of the Tetra BTS software with the Base Station Controller(BSC), Base Station Manager (BSM) and other components of the system.

V.25bis is a call set-up protocol between a DCE (the TES subsystem) and a DTE (a router). Supporting this layer on top of the existing data-communication layer provided an over the satellite data connection between two remote routers. I was solely responsible for designing, implementing, testing and integrating the protocol layer with the rest of the subsystem.2) Data layer support and refinement : Refined the design and implementation of the data-communication layer to reduce errors at high data rate. Was also responsible for supporting this layer, fixing bugs and providing enhancements as necessary.3) In two side projects, led a team in developing a Visual C++ based debugging tool called 'Call Analyzer' for TES product line and was part of another in developing an X-Motif/C based Handset simulator for CLAIRCOM, an airplane to ground communication system.
