Hi, my name is

Gufran Mirza.

I am building software of Internet Scale.

I’m a software engineer specializing in building (and occasionally designing) large scale Distributed systems & Softwares. I have an entrepreneurial mindset and I am interested in building exceptional products & experiences. Currently, I’m focused on building new products and services at IBM Cloud Platform.

About Me

Hello! My name is Gufran and I enjoy building software that is scalable, robust, and secure by design. My interest in software development started back in 2012 when I tried to build a simple website.

During my college days, I heavily got interested in building Community Platform for Developers, Ednsquare — Blogging & QnA Platform It serves as a playground for developers to learn & share knowledge.

Fast-forward to today, and I’ve had the privilege of working on large-scale enterprise software and solving challenging problems for customers. I also works with a few early stage startups. Currently, I’m focused on building new products and services at IBM Cloud Platform

Over the course of time, I got the chance to work on various technology and frameworks, but I am more interested in building exceptional softwares rather than just being attached to specific framework or technology and I believe in Software Craftsmanship. Here are a few areas of computing that I am interested in

  • Distributed Systems & Networking
  • High Performance Computing
  • Software Architecture and Design
  • Confidential/Trustless Computing
