Ajillion by Crossrider


Senior Python Developer

Core developer, worked on a high load distributed service serving
millions mobile ads per second.

· I developed a high load distributed service hosted on Amazon AWS (EC2, S3), based on Django, using Python, Redis, MySQL, HP Vertica, Twisted, Celery, gevent and a little bit Lua on top of Nginx for lower level networking.

Fixed a system to scale linearly by profiling and eliminating critical bottlenecks, and dramatically reducing IO usage on each cluster node.
Implemented a global lock feature on top of a Redis DB. Whenever it should be guaranteed that the shortcode section has exclusive access to some portion of data, it just acquires a lock, and other instances won't be able to reach it until release.
Dramatically reduced latency by adding memorization on top of a local process memory and 2-level caching (local and remote Redis).
Integrated with Google Ads, MobFox, and other RTB partners (real-time bidding).
Created a special filtering layer on the level of Nginx. Lua scripts apply all the filtering efficiently by dropping not-useful connections very early, even before it gets to the Python back end.

Simple OTP Demo

Simple OTP is a functional and secure solution demo. It allows users to verify their email or phone number by entering a unique One-Time Password (OTP) code. The demo app was built using a combination of cutting-edge technologies, including React, Material-UI, and AWS Lambda, DynamoDB, and the Serverless framework.

With Simple OTP, users can enter their email or phone number, receive an OTP code, and then enter the code to receive a signed JWT token that contains their email or phone number in the sub claim. This demo app demonstrates integration with third-party APIs such as Twilio and Mailgun for SMS and email services, respectively. It showcases use of Python, PyOTP, PyJWT, PynamoDB, and Requests libraries for server-side programming and API integration.

Push To Notion (web app integration)

Push to Notion" is a tool that allows users to quickly and easily add items to their Notion to-do list from various sources, such as Siri, Alfred, Slack, and Telegram.
