About
With over 15 years of experience in programming since my initiation in 2007, following a year at CDI and another at Jerusalem College of Technology, my career has been dedicated to designing scalable software solutions. Passionate about software development and scalability, I currently serve as the 'Chief Software Architect,' leveraging my expertise to oversee and guide various teams, facilitating the accomplishment of their distinct goals.
  • Gluwa Inc.

    Chief Software Architect & Head of Engineering

    2021 - Lead Software Architect

      • Brought in to enhance the scalability of the GluwaAPI while establishing communication with EVM-compatible chains.
    • Developed an API for the seamless execution of Ethereum transactions, internally referred to as the Ethereum Relayer.
    • Assumed leadership of the DevOps team, transitioning from manual deployment to Infrastructure As Code.
    • Contributed to the deployment of the CreditCoin blockchain for another team in the company, incorporating centralized load balancers for decentralized RPC nodes.

    2022 - Lead Software Architect & DevOps

    • Conducted a comprehensive assessment of the Gluwa API's current state and formulated a re-architecturing plan.
    • Restructured security permissions on Azure using AAD Groups for each development squad.
    • After completing the assessment, the execution of the plan involved moving the Gluwa API from a static currency system to a dynamic currency system. The new system was now aware of different networks and their types of blockchain networks, such as bitcoin vs ethereum. Currencies became dynamic on top of networks. To make this happen, the project had to get rid of shared projects in favor of shared class libraries. It had to create a proper class library with separation to handle networks and currencies. Many services were built around to make things more dynamic, like gas services for Ethereum and new fee services to estimate blockchain fees more efficiently.

    2023 - Chief Software Architect & Head of Engineering

    • This clear vision allowed Gluwa to develop investment products and deploy them on multiple blockchains like the Ethereum mainnet and Binance Smart Chain without the code needing to be specific to a chain due to its newly introduced dynamicity.
    • The next objective involved using the Ethereum Relayer that was built to provide future calling proof transaction submission.
    • The same concept was duplicated to add Substrate-based chains to the Gluwa API, but had to build another relayer specific to Substrate due to its lack of support for DOTNET. This was done in NodeJS, and communication between dotnet and NodeJS was done via async messages using Azure Service Bus topic/subscriptions.
    • Returned to the CreditCoin team to take over the leadership of the research team, helped the research team understand the requirements and expectations, worked hard to promote transparency of the work, and usability of the research.
    • This eventually led to me being added to the role of Head of Engineering, taking over all teams and coordinating the different teams and objectives.
