Present

I’m a NYC-based full-time sector-
agnostic angel/seed investor in tech startups, including Wish, Pilot, and 280 North. I'm also spending more time thinking about and working on projects at the intersection of software engineering and biotech.

Past

I consulted with PACT pharma, a cancer immunotherapy biotech company and I am a founder of Sprink — Enterprise Whiteboarding for Distributed Teams. I’m passionate about remote work and in creating tools to allow for better collaboration.

I was an entrepreneur in residence at Benchmark Capital in San Francisco. I led Twitter’s New York engineering office and managed a number of consumer engineering projects including Moments. I was CEO and founder of Mitro, a startup that exited to Twitter,
and an engineer at Google from
2002-2009 where I built a number of distributed systems and infrastructure systems.

I often write articles:
I fixed a Linux kernel bug in the veth driver
I discovered that NYC’s Taxi and Limousine Commission released improperly anonymized taxi logs
I analysed how employees collaborated across sites at Twitter.

Future

I’m very interested in biotech, data privacy, machine learning, telepresence, and distributed systems. Please email me or DM me (@vijaysays).
