About Me

Hey! My name is Avijeet Sachdev, but you can call me Avi.

I love tinkering with technology to turn impossibile ideas into tangible products, especially ones that can empower people. I am a Software Engineer in New York City, currently working as an iOS Engineer at Healthfirst. My technical interests include Full-Stack web applications, iOS application development, and Internet of Things (IoT) systems. The languages I love to build applications with are Swift, Python, and Javascript.

Furthermore, I have a deep appreciation for art that pushes the needle forward, speaks volumes subtly, and exudes creativity. I’ve spent countless hours exploring the diverse works of UI/UX design, music production, street photography, and fashion. A selected few artists that hold great influence on me are A Tribe Called Quest, Madlib, Matt Stuart, and Ronnie Fieg. I am known to collect vinyl records and sneakers.


Previously

Throughout my experiences working for companies such as Avanade/Accenture, Viacom, Bond, to.be, Betaworks, and DoSomething, I have built functionality for projects including a dynamic advertisement configuration tool, clothing marketplace for user-submitted designs, and an interactive data-driven dashboard.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Informatics, with an emphasis in Human-Computer Interaction, with minors in Computer Science and Philosophy from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. My course work included Principles of Programming Languages, Data Structures and Algorithms, Web Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Philosophical Logic, Database Management Systems, and Computer Architecture. I served as President of the Rutgers Mobile App Development Club, coordinating workshops and mentor programs for students interested in applying Computer Science theory to iOS and Android platforms.


Philosophy

  • Dream in years
  • Plan in months
  • Evaluate in weeks
  • Ship daily

  • Prototype for 1x
  • Build for 10x
  • Engineer for 100x

  • What’s required to cut the timeline in half?
  • What needs to be done to double the impact?
