My name is Hamel Kothari. I’m a software engineer currently living in New York City. Before that I was in Palo Alto, before that Berkeley and even before that I grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts.
I attended UC Berkeley where I got a B.A. in Computer Science. I worked at Palantir Technologies for 3.5 years as a Software Engineer and Forward Deployed Engineer before leaving in late 2015. I worked at Bloomberg as a senior software engineer for about 6 months, and then I left for Two Sigma Investments, where I am currently employed.
My interests are in Spark and learning about scalable web technologies. I like to think that I’m interested in finance as well although lately I haven’t been to great about that.
All thoughts/posts are my own and do not necessarily represent those of my employer.
