Farhan Kathawala

Full Stack Web / React Native Developer

Hi! 👋 Welcome to my personal website. I’m a full-stack developer with 3 years of experience in frontend development (worked with Angular and Vue back then, now I mostly work with React/React Native) and 3 years of experience in backend development, writing and maintaining APIs and microservices. I also have 2.5 years of experience automating service provision and application setup on AWS/Azure/GCP.

Currently I work at Shopify, solving all kinds of interesting technical challenges in the shipping and logistics space while working on the Shopify Fulfillment Network.

Previously I worked at Passed Plates - helping rescue surplus food in restaurants around SF, SAP and Lively Inc. I’ve also interned at StartX and Stanford’s CVGL.

Fun fact: for a brief period of time I was involved in writing a Monero miner ⛏️

In my free time, I like to read and write poetry 📖. I also like to turn old computers into Linux 🐧 servers at my house and blog about what I do with them.
