about me

Code Monkey Supreme

My name is Mahram and I’m an Android Software Developer based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Software development isn’t just what I do. It’s what I love to do. Although I’ve been an Android developer for the past 5 years, I’ve dipped my toe in a number of platforms. This is my story.

Code Monkey Supreme @ Hookt Inc.

I’m currently the lead Android developer at Hookt (a subsidiary of airG). Hookt is best described as light social meets instant messaging. We’re a small team with big dreams. When I’m not coding up a storm, I’m maintaining and/or improving our Gradle build files.  I work with great people, which is a part of why I enjoy what I do.

Platform Engineer @ Vision Critical

Before joining airG, I was a Platform Engineer at Vision Critical. Vision Critical creates a cloud based customer intelligence platform (think surveys on steroids). My job at VCI mostly involved coding in C# and maintaining  MSBuild and nAnt scripts.  I worked with great individuals who contributed to my betterment with their knowledge and experiences. I am grateful to have known and worked with them even though it was only for a short time.

Test Engineer @ EATech

My very first real job was testing the core technologies at the central technology group (EATech) in EA Canada.  EATech was mostly responsible for harnessing abilities of the next generation platforms and making them available under a single API (where possible). Most of the said technologies were written in C/C++, but some internal tools and pipelines were developed in C#. One of my main projects at EA was testing the build framework, which is where I mastered the art of hand-editing Visual Studio Project and Solution files. I still somewhat posses those skills and I’m disturbingly proud of it! Needless to say, I met a lot of bright developers and learned a great deal from them. I still keep in touch with many of them.

I’m in the Game

It would suck to work at EA for nearly 4 years and not make it to the credits page of one or two games, right? My favourite game credits are

  • NHL 2010
  • Need For Speed: Shift
  • FIFA 2005
  • FIFA 2007
  • FIFA 2008
  • UEFA Champions League 2004/2005
  • Mirror’s Edge

Student @ Simon Fraser University

I received my BSc in Computing Sciences from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia. Lucky for me, before I officially graduated, I landed the job at EA.
