Hi, I’m Elias. By day I’m working at Stripe. Before that, I led search and recommendations at OLX, optimized VLDBs at EPAM, and built “real” things in a few mechanical eng startups.

I’m writing a newsletter for engineers, focused on data applications, diving deep into systems, architectures, and foundational papers. In the blog part, you can find more random observations about other things I like - charts, books, photography, movies, football, and tennis.
