About

I am a Software Developer. I enjoy talking to people, solving problems, hiking, and writing code. Software Engineering graduate from Carnegie Mellon. I was a developer at Amazon Music team in Seattle for 4 years. Most recently I helped build location stack at HyperTrack. I am currently building Nurtch, a platform to write interactive runbooks for incident response.

Proficient with RoR, Python/Django, Java. I have built & managed infrastructure at scale using <all your buzzwords go here>. Strong proponent of automated testing & code reviews as they help us build faster. Also interested in human side of software engineering: development processes, collaboration tools and such.

I currently live in New Delhi, India. Outside of Nurtch, I try to spend some time tinkering with new tools, working on side gigs, helping companies/dev-teams with specific problems. Happy to chat if you think I can help in any way. Write to me at amit@nurtch.com

Open source projects I built:

  • rubix: Python package to enable DevOps tasks in Jupyter Notebooks
  • numcompress: Simple library to compress numerical series into strings
