My name is Rudi, currently a full-time software engineer at Figma (we’re hiring!). I currently work in the infrastructure team on a framework for serving real-time data. I’ve also worked on many other areas of the design editor including product features, stability, and the plugin API.

Previously, I finished a degree in Computer Science at University of Waterloo. I have interned at Airbnb, Jane Street, Dropbox and Side Effects Software and was in the Recurse Center Summer 1 ‘17 batch. In this blog, I try to put words together in sentences such that they may be interesting and occasionally useful.
