About Me

Zain Rizvi

I build the infrastructure used by millions of developers around the world.

I’ve helped build Google Cloud Platform’s AI Platform Notebooks and Microsoft’s Azure App Platform, and nowadays I'm building Stripe. I even worked on Windows when I was a wee lad.

You can also find me on Twitter and co-hosting the podcast The Nonintuitive Bits.
