Anshudeep Mathur

Hello, just call me Anshu.
I'm a tinkerer who loves to design + build complex systems that are simple to use. I have a particular interest in search systems, networks and data visualisation. I am presently based in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada

I currently work at Shopify as a software engineer. In the past, I've held positions relating to data analysis and data warehouse development at BlackBerry, and done a fair bit of web development on a contractual/ad-hoc basis.
