About

I am a software developer / indie entrepreneur. I enjoy building dev tools, talking to people, solving problems and hiking. I am currently building:

  • ReviewNB, review tool for Jupyter Notebooks on GitHub (think diff, commenting etc. for Notebooks)
  • Nurtch, a platform to write interactive runbooks for incident response

I have a graduate degree in Software Engineering from Carnegie Mellon. Prior to entrepreneurial bug, I was a developer at Amazon Music team in Seattle & also helped build location stack at HyperTrack.

Proficient with Ruby on Rails, Python/Django, Java, and recently picked up some (serious?) chops in VueJS. I have built & managed infrastructure at scale with <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 ReviewNB & Nurtch, I help companies / dev teams with specific problems. Currently on an engagement with GitLab to help build executable runbooks for DevOps. Write to me at hello@amirathi.com if I can help in any way or if you just want to say hi.

Open source projects I built:

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

Some blogs I wrote about my work at HyperTrack.
