Hi I'm

Saurabh Bora.

Leveraging technology to solve problems!



I am a software engineer who loves to solve business problems using technology. I have always been fascinated by how we can express our thoughts into code and produce the desired output. I believe programming has the power to explore new possibilities and improve people's lives. I have enjoyed working on multiple software roles throughout my career in web, mobile application development, UI/UX, and machine learning. Being a tech enthusiast, I love to read blogs & articles that showcase the latest technologies and inventions. Other interests include listening to music, playing cricket.


Things that I'm good at.

Urban Company - Software Development Engineer 1 (Nov 2020 - Jan 2022)

Part of the Matchmaking engineering team

Our job is to find the best-suited partner that can serve a customer's request. It involves calculating complex predictive metrics using multiple signals around partner availability, skills, current inventory, preferences, location, historical behaviour, and other parameters. We need to make constant trade-offs between partner economics, marketplace economics, and customer delight while maintaining the overall fairness of the system.

  • Implemented a workflow to sync matchmaking configuration files between local storage & google drive which helped the product managers & business folks to cut all their manual efforts by 60%
  • Built dashboards for visualising & comparing matchmaking configuration files thereby improving the overall transparency of the matchmaking process
  • Worked on the end-to-end deprecation of matchmaking's monolith & migration to microservices. This reduced the overall response time by more than 50%. Was responsible for redesigning, migrating, and platforming many fulfillment use cases. Migrated 46 APIs, 12 Kafka events & backfilled 8 database collections. This drastically helped to reduce the tech debt. It also improved the overall system performance since the new system scaled well during peak times
