Elvin Efendi's personal website



Currently I work as a Production Engineer at Shopify - a Canadian based commerce platform that allows anyone to easily sell online, at a retail location, and everywhere in between. Some of my responsiblities at Shopify are maintaining Load Balancing tier, Lua scripted dynamic request routing using Nginx, protecting the platform from Layer 7 (D)DoS attacks and bots, Automated Certificate Management, reducing manual work for traffic engineering and others.

Before Shopify I worked at a startup called fitogram, a web based fitness and welness directory. There I built the MVP from scratch that included internationalized content, Postgresql based full text search, Google Map based UI for search and filtering, multi-tenant CMS with subscription for studio owners, appointment scheduling system etc. During my time at fitogram I did everything from HTML/CSS coding, dynamic UIs using Javascript/JQuery to full Rails stack, deployment and database administration.

While at fitogram I was also pursuing my master's degree at University of Bonn, Computer Science department. My main focus there has been Intelligent Systems(Machine Learning, Data Mining).

Oh last but not least I like olympic wrestling and soccer :)
