Hi, I am Oitihjya Sen, a lawyer-turned programmer from India.

I am currently working as a backend engineer at Helpshift.

Prior to joining Helpshift, I attended the Recurse Center, New York, where I met some of the smartest and most curious programmers from across the globe.

In my erstwhile avatar as a lawyer, I worked as a Research Fellow at India’s leading legal think tank (2019-21), where I contributed towards modernizing India’s bankruptcy legal framework.

Here are a few of my personal projects:

I have written over 40 posts on my tech blog, on various topics ranging from OAuth framework, higher-order functions, JavaScript Promises to cache replacement policies and lazy sequences in Clojure.

I love participating in spirited debates, discussing politics over Darjeeling Tea, and listening to good old RabindraSangeet!
