Tejus Parikh

After 14 years of working on startups in Atlanta, GA, in 2018 I moved cross country to be an IC for Amazon.com in Seattle. This blog contains occasional musings about software development and working in the field. If that sounds interesting, follow me on or connect on Linkedin.

Hi There

I'm Tejus Parikh, a father, husband, software engineer, cycling enthusiast, and a fan of most things tech. I work for Amazon as a software engineer after 14 years of building startups in Atlanta, GA.

Yep, that's me.

Prior to Amazon, I co-founded WideAngle. Our company's application helps managers and their direct reports prepare for their regular 1 on 1 meetings.

That's me presenting our software at Atlanta Startup Village

Prior to WideAngle, I put in stint as a Team Lead R&D at Outbrain, working out of the Atlanta, GA office. Our group has created a syndication platform to provide brands the content fuel needed to engage their audience through social media and Outbrain's amplification platform.

Outbrain's technology office is in Netanya, IL.

Scribit was the company we sold to Outbrain in 2012, where I was the Principle Engineer. Leading up to this position, I've worked at a number of Atlanta startups, including Vocalocity, Appcelerator, Scoutmob, and Mobilization Labs. I did have one personal digression where I worked for a large company, but the enjoyment from working in exceptional environments with very talented people keeps drawing me back to the world of early stage startups.

Our dog loves his toys and clothes.

My wife, Sonali, and I have been married since 2004. We started our family with a few plants. They died, but we persevered and got a dog, Ajax. Contrary to popular belief, Ajax is named after AFC Ajax, not AJAX.

Mira, ready for action.

In October 2012, we welcomed our daughter, Mira, into this world. Being parents is nothing and everything like what people say. I don't think it's possible to put the experience into words.

In 2018 we moved from Atlanta, GA to the opposite corner of the country, Seattle, WA.

The Parikhs.
