A short and sweet version of this page is available at about.me/shashankmehta. If you’ve got time to burn, read on.

Hi, I’m Shashank Mehta! I am a Software Developer at Razorpay. Earlier I used to be an Electronics and Communication undergrad at IIT Roorkee.

I have been working remotely with Razorpay since December 2014 and full time since May 2015.

I interned at Zomato during the summer of 2014 and at Mango Man technologies in summer of 2013.

I started off with PHP but now use whatever feels right like Node or Ruby. I have worked with SlimPHP, Toro, Express, Rails, Backbone, SASS etc. I can work on frontend but I prefer working on the backend.

I code for food, MacBook, fast internet, noise cancelling headphones, a comfortable chair and desk. Pretty basic needs. Truly.

I maintain a post on my Setup at /setup.

I maintain a projects list at /projects.

I push most of my code to GitHub.

I have been member SDSLabs (Software Development Section of IIT Roorkee) and Watch Out News Agency (Official News Magazine of IIT Roorkee) since my first year in college. I went on serve as the Secretary of SDSLabs in 4th year and Chairman of Watch Out in 3rd year of college.

I have won a few hackathons with the folks at SDSLabs.

I also play squash. IIT Roorkee Squash courts is where you’ll find me most evenings. I served as the Joint Secretary of Squash IITR in 3rd year of college.

I am an HN addict.

I am a die hard Manchester United fan at club football level and Spain fan at international football level.

I can be stalked on Twitter or Instagram.
