Software Developer
Optable Technologies Inc.

Sep 2022 - Jan 2024

As a Software Developer at Optable, I've been deeply involved in enhancing the backend of our cutting-edge data collaboration platform. I've consistently prioritized code quality, privacy, and performance, ensuring our solutions meet and exceed industry standards. In my day-to-day, I work extensively with Go, using gRPC for efficient service communication (API), and I also worked with React.js for any front-end tasks that arise. My role involves regularly using GCP services and Terraform for infrastructure as code. I have to work extensively with databases, particularly Postgres and Google BigQuery, to handle complex data queries. A significant part of my responsibilities includes writing comprehensive tests to maintain high code reliability and participating in code reviews to foster a culture of collaboration and continuous improvement. I'm proud to contribute to a platform that streamlines data collaborations, respects user privacy, and adheres to the highest security standards.
