Biography

As Director of Engineering, Ahad leads the team responsible for building and maintaining the software infrastructure that helps Factual crunch through the large amounts of data required to build high quality datasets. Ahad joined Factual in 2010.

Before Factual, Ahad helped lead engineering efforts at the CommonCrawl project, where he was an early adopter of Hadoop and Amazon’s EC2 platform. Prior to this, he held technical and leadership positions at Google, AOL, and others and worked on a variety of interesting projects including distributed systems, web browsers, and control systems, to name a few.

When not compensating for the ever shrinking half-life of engineering knowledge by revisiting the beauty of code-as-data in Lisp (but now Clojure), exploring Category Theory in Scala, debating the pros and cons of Rust vs. Go or Spark vs. MapReduce, or trying to comprehend which Flux framework to use, Ahad splits his remaining free time between teaching his kids stuff and exercising.
