About Abhinav

You have reached homepage of Abhinav Singh. I am from Lucknow, India and currently living in San Francisco, California. Husband, Father, Musician, Engineer, Dog lover, Photographer.

I work with Google Cloud team. Before joining the Cloud team, I led several projects in Firebase. Prior to Firebase, I was hacking into Android and iOS mobile operating system for automation. I came to Google through the acquisition of Appurify, Inc. (now Firebase Test Lab) where we were making tools for debugging, automated testing and performance optimization for native, hybrid and mobile web applications, enabling testing on real iOS and Android devices.

Before joining Appurify, I was consulting on building large scale messaging systems primarily using Erlang Open Telecom Platform and served as a member of XMPP Standards Foundation for 3 years. During the same period, I worked on my startup Jaxl that provided a real-time push transport for business applications over the cloud that works cross-platform. wp-chat, a WordPress plugin providing real-time chat between customer and site owners built on-top of Jaxl platform. Some generic code written for Jaxl was open sourced on Github. I started my career at Oracle where I was building Supply chain management systems (OBIEE Technology). My first experience with large-scale distributed systems came at Y! where I worked with Yahoo Cricket, News and Movies platform.

I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering in 2007. For the major part of my graduation, I worked on Automatic music information retrieval systems which involved extracting music features using speech processing and feeding into supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms for automatic music recommendation and categorization. I did my schooling from City Montessori School, Lucknow, which holds the Guinness world record for the world’s largest school.

While not at work I am either playing guitarclicking pictures, playing chess or spending time with family and friends. I was introduced to the guitar by my school friends in December 2002, we used to play Rock and Bollywood music. Nowadays, I enjoy playing Blues with a mix of Indian Carnatic music. During my spare time, I love reading and hacking into systems and sometimes creating applications for non-profit, fun and learning. Some projects I worked in the past Gtalkbots (down), Altertunes (down), IIT Guwahati Alumni Association Portal (down), Mobile apps search engine, Letsjam (down), Web demos (from early 2007 when I started learning web development).
