Hi, I’m Venil Noronha, a software engineer with a passion for distributed systems and software architecture. I have a decade of industry experience in topics ranging service mesh, microservices, distributed systems, software design, platform engineering, and cloud computing. I enjoy contributing to open source projects and sharing my knowledge with the community.
Currently, I work at Stripe, Inc., one of the leading payment platforms in the world. There, I’m building innovative products for online payments, and have also worked on the service mesh and service discovery platforms that power Stripe’s infrastructure. Before joining Stripe, I was at VMware, Inc., where I led several projects in relation with the Tanzu Service Mesh product. Prior to that, I developed SaaS products at Germin8, a Microsoft-backed social media analytics startup in Mumbai.
I love contributing to open source projects and really enjoy speaking at technology conferences. I’ve contributed to projects like Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, gRPC, Golang, Kubernetes, RabbitMQ, etc. on GitHub. I’ve been a maintainer of subprojects in the Istio and Envoy communities, and I’ve donated one of my projects, Spring Cloud Config Server MongoDB, to Pivotal’s Spring Cloud Incubator. I hold a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Southern California, and a Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from the University of Mumbai.
