You’ve reached Bogdan Popa’s personal website. Welcome!

I’ve been working as a professional software engineer for the past 13 years. In that time span I have worked on a variety of problems ranging from low-level video streaming on mobile devices to real time mobile analytics, device fingerprinting, landing page optimization, fraud detection and scaling databases and systems containing tens of terabytes of financial data.

I built and operate Matchacha, a Romanian e-commerce business that imports and sells Japanese green tea and I currently work part-time at Nomics, where I run the API and the data ingestion platform. I’m also working with Marc Kaufmann on congame, an experimental economics platform. Previously, I was the CTO of BlockFraud, a mobile fraud detection SaaS, and, before that, I was a Principal Engineer at Leadpages.

In my free time, I like to contribute to the Racket programming language and ecosystem. I maintain koyo, dramatiq, molten and a bunch of other OSS which you can find on my projects page and on my GitHub profile.
