Current Position (since January 2021):

Software Development Engineer II @ Amazon

TEN Search Team

Joined a new team (formed in 2020) dealing with search-related issues in new and emerging marketplaces at Amazon.

Challenges:

  • Improving Search Result quality in new and emerging marketplaces
  • Guiding team in building scalable systems

Current Project:

Ethereum Smart Contract: A Blockchain powered Casino

Technologies: Typescript, ReactJS, Solidity, Truffle.js

As Cryptocurrencies and Blockchains are a hot topic at the moment, I decided to take a look into how dApps on the Ethereum Blockchain work and how to implement an ERC20 token (the standard for cryptotokens such as DAI, USDC or COMP). In addition to the token, I wrote a Smart Contract that allows interacting with the token based on fixed rules, similar to how DeFi apps such as UNISWAP or COMPOUND operate.
