Developer and Former Staff

Shameel Arafin is a web-application architect, back-end developer, database wrangler, and system administrator. He studied engineering and literature at Caltech and Harvard. Following college, he worked in investment banking during the (first) dotcom boom, at Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse First Boston. After five years on Wall Street, he returned to his engineering roots and joined the team at Massify as a developer and project manager, where he helped launch a social network and crowd-sourcing web application for the film and TV industry.
