Hi! I'm Saurabh, a dad, iOS engineer, Entrepreneur, and Cycling Enthusiast from Amsterdam.

Download CV

I am a full-stack iOS developer with more than 14 years of experience building apps with millions of active users for companies like Aol., eBuddy, Booking.com, Week Calendar, and eBay.

I have dual master’s degrees in Computer Engineering and Computer Science from North Carolina State University, and was once enrolled as a doctoral student in Biomedical Engineering at UNC Chapel Hill.

In addition to providing product development consulting services through my company, I am a co-founder of a new productivity app for families. The app is built entirely using Swift in the app as well as on the server. I am committed to helping develop amazing things, and so I would love to hear from you if I could assist you or your company.

I am currently available for contracting or freelance opportunities, and am interested in working out interesting financial terms for startups with novel ideas. Please send me an email!
