Hamel Ajay Kothari writes about computers and stuff.


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 too think that I'm interested in finance as well.

If you're interested in contacting me about any of my posts, my email address is my first and last name at gmail dot com.

All thoughts/posts are my own and do not necessarily represent those of my employer.
