I’m a NYC-based full-time sector-
agnostic angel/seed investor in tech startups, including Wish, Pilot, and 280 North. Next quarter, I'm teaching SBIODS 253 — Software Engineering for Scientists at Stanford University . I'm also spending more time thinking about and working on projects at the intersection of software engineering and biotech.


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.


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