About

Ashwin PhatakI’m a software engineer & independent software consultant with almost 15 years of experience building products for startups & large enterprises. I also help fellow travelers at the start of their entrepreneurial journey, sharing my experiences and technical know-how, and helping them avoid the same mistakes I’ve made.

Over the last 7 years, I’ve worked exclusively on agile, remote & distributed teams building stuff like e-commerce products, mobile backend software, distributed query processors, database/platform as a service software and custom web applications. In earlier stints at other companies, I’ve worked on core banking software, chat/IM servers, and a Text to 911 solution, among many other products.

I love working with nice and talented people on interesting and hard software engineering problems. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch to explore how we can work together!
