I’m a senior backend engineer at Quartz, where I lead the design and development of the backend systems that drive the Quartz’s website and apps. This work includes the launch of Quartz membership, Quartz’s first paid subscription service, and the U.S. expansion of NewsPicks, Japan’s leading business news platform, which was later acquired by Quartz.
Prior to coming to the news industry, I worked for e-commerce companies of various sizes. These includes Rakuten, Japan's largest e-commerce platform, and Gilt, a luxury apparel flash sale site, where I focused on developing and maintaining the backend and infrastructure for product search, inventory management, and payment. Here is a list of projects I have recently worked on.
