As a Software Engineer, with a degree in Information Technology (Computer Science), I have an intense ambition for building software, especially Web Scale Systems. I am especially passionate about building mission-critical systems that require the cutting-edge in performance and scalability requirements.
At Freelancer.com I have worked with a multitude of open-source projects to help build the best systems I can. These include RabbitMQ, Apache Thrift, MySQL, Redis, Memcache, Varnish, Nginx and HAProxy.
The systems I have built at Freelancer.com mostly use Python, PHP and Go as the basis for implementation. As part of the deployment of these systems, is a required knowledge of Puppet, which is used as the basis of deploying our systems to our Amazon EC2-backed stack, which requires an intimate knowledge of Networking and managing Linux instances.
