I'm Jay. I'm working on Highlight.io.
I'm currently the ceo @ Highlight.io; we're building an open source observability distribution. I occasionally invest in founders who I develop good relationships with. Most of these businesses are in the dev-tools/infra spaces. Some of the public investments I've made include OpenMeter, MagicPatterns, and Trigger.dev.
In school, I had interests in hardware/software co-design, software
architecture and robotics. After taking a few jobs throughout college, I
developed a deep interest in web infrastructure.
Before working on Highlight, I went through YCombinator with a company called Reploy, where I built/designed the product and drove sales. At its core, Reploy used Kubernetes to schedule ephemeral environments.
Before that, I spent time working on product at Handshake, anti-abuse infrastructure at Google, and most recently on machine learning infra at Deepmind. In high school, I was a captain of the 2015 FTC World Championship Robotics team, which started my wanderings in tech.
