Hi there. My name is Karan Goel.
I design, build, and ship things that make the world a better place. Obviously "better" is subjective.
Founded the first student-led, and the biggest ever hackathon in the PNW. Led a team of 10 students, hosting 350+ students from all across the US and 30+ sponsor companies.
I interned at Google with the Street View (Maps) team where I worked on making the data ingest pipeline more reliable and faster (for data center uploads).
In Summer 2013, I interned at Lenskart.com as a Data Analyst and shipped two custom dashboards with realtime data streams using Tableau.

I started the first maker club at the UW called Sudo Soldiers. With an awesome team of officers, we have almost made the club a cult by organizing weekly student-led technical workshops.
