Hey there! I’m Pranav Agrawal. I began studying computer science because I felt that it gave me the opportunity to work on so many future projects. To get started on a product or an app today all you need is a computer, access to the Internet and your own knowledge. That’s it.
My name is Mo Mozafarian. I’m a designer by trade and a hacker by passion. I grew up around computers and was introduced to computer graphics at an early age. Ever since I’ve been keeping myself busy by designing and building a variety of online and offline products. I always thought I’d become an engineer since I was good at math and physics but I ended up going to university to study visual arts and after that graphic design.
Hi, my name is Michael Kral and I’ve just joined the Mokriya team as an iOS Developer. I started developing iOS apps almost 5 years ago after finishing up my Bachelor’s degree at Arizona State University. Since graduating I’ve worked on many iOS apps from startups to corporate B2B apps in both Objective-C and Swift. I’ve also created my own app named Humidex that allows cigar enthusiasts to catalogue and create review notes about their cigars.
“I’ve been traveling since April. I have no deadline,” says FJ, an iOS Engineer and a member of the Mokriya team. Originally from France, FJ is now on the road permanently, bouncing from continent to continent, all while holding down a steady job.
Welcome to our new series on the blog, where we sit down with individual team members and discuss their challenges, triumphs, and adventures. For our first interview, we’re speaking with Michael Corrigan, Mokriya’s Head of Growth, about how he combines travel and work.
I’m Nelson Glauber and have just joined Mokriya as an Android developer. I started working with mobile development in 2006, creating games for cellphones in Java ME. In 2009 I began working for a cellphone manufacturer where the focus was customizing the Android operating system for its new production line of smartphones. This was my first contact with the Android platform. Since then I’ve worked almost exclusively with Android in platform and application levels.
My name is Frida Issa and I have been developing for mobile for the last 9 years. I have been an entrepreneur for 6 years, co-founded and led two startups in the field of Augmented Reality.
My expertise started with mobile applications, especially with Android. It then developed further into computer vision algorithms for Android and iOS to recognize images, faces or motion, 3D engines in OpenGL and wrapping any code into simple and usable SDKs. Recently, I also worked in the field of Virtual Reality helping Madrid’s University to provide a software kit for its new patented headset.
Intro from Mokriya CEO, Sunil Kanderi: “We were talking to Google about a project that required someone with a Math background, image processing and VR experience. I knew it was going to be hard to find someone with all those skills. One of our iOS developers, Francois, mentioned in a Slack conversation that he knew a “crazy genius”, that might actually tick all of those boxes.
Intro from Mokriya CEO, Sunil Kanderi: “Pavan is a quintessential Software Engineer with a deep sense of craftsmanship towards coding. In India most programmers move on to team management roles after three to four years of coding, essentially becoming deskilled and non-technical. What I liked in Pavan is the fact that he hasn’t lost his passion for programming since the early days of his career as an Embedded programmer (8 years ago) to his current evolution as a senior Android Engineer.”
One of the fastest ways to level up your game in either business or life is to read books. That’s right. Good old books. They’ve been around forever, but they represent the fast lane to learning.
