You've reached Bogdan Popa's personal website. Welcome!
I've been working as a professional software engineer for the past 14 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 analytics, device fingerprinting, landing page optimization, fraud detection and scaling databases and systems containing hundreds of terabytes of financial data.
For a while, I ran Matchacha, a Romanian e-commerce business that imported and sold Japanese green tea. I'm currently working as a Principal Engineer at ServiceBell and developing Franz, a native desktop client for Apache Kafka, in my spare time. I'm also working with Marc Kaufmann on congame, a platform for building & running economics studies. Previously, I worked on redacted at Intuit, I ran the API and data ingestion platform for Nomics, I was the CTO of BlockFraud, and 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.
