Tatsuya Oiwa


Hi there, I’m Tatsuya 👋

I’m a software engineer from Japan currently living and working in New York. 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 iOS app. This work includes the launch of Quartz's first paid subscription service, Quartz membership, and the U.S. expansion of NewsPicks, Japan's leading business news platform, which was later integrated into Quartz through mergers and acquisitions.

Prior to coming to the news media industry, I was a backend engineer at GILT, a flash sale site specializing in luxury apparel, and Rakuten, Japan’s largest B-to-C and C-to-C e-commerce platform, where I worked on developing services such as product listings, membership and payments, as well as DevOpts for a large-scale, self-service, distributed search platform.

You can also find me on LinkedIn, Github or Twitter.
