Work Experience


Software Engineer

GSA Capital - DSG (Data Services Group)

The team is responsible for the design, implementation, and maintenance of all data systems driving trading models. This includes decisions about data storage, processing and delivery. There is a heavy emphasis on robustness.

During my time at GSA, I developed multiple new systems which are heavily relied upon during trading. Frequently, I had to debug and fix production-critical systems in severe time constraints. Common tasks include - system / API design, implementation, and performance optimization. Database design and optimization (both via query tuning and more complex schema/index alteration).

Technologies used: Java, Python, SQL, Scala


Software Engineer Intern


Developed a real-time, code coverage tracking tool for a multi-user environment with a feature to let engineers modify local state inside processes executing on a remote machine. The tool allowed the company to significantly simplify the process of testing hosted applications.

Extended a code-coverage tool, for which the source code was unavailable, via reverse engineering.

Technologies used: C#, SQL
