Hi, I'm Rachit.
I'm from Pullman, WA, a small college town in Eastern WA.
Afterwards, I worked as a quant and programmer at DE Shaw.
I was part of the YC W22 batch, though I'm working on a new company now.
I mostly like to work on technical problems, though they can vary a lot from day to day. A lot of my earlier work as a quant was on numerical optimization (both in the sense of optimizing an objective function and optimizing numerical code). You might be able to nerd-snipe me into optimizing your code (especially if it's open source).
I also enjoy designing things, and getting my hands dirty. A few years ago I liked making t-shirts, and maybe it's time to do it again.
