About Me

My name is Jeyabalaji (Jeya). I am a product focused technology leader obsessed with building usable and scalable products using cutting edge technologies.

I possess more than 15+ years of expertise in ideating, conceptualizing & delivering products across FinTech & Supply Chain verticals. I have worked across multiple geographies viz. Western Europe, Australia, Middle East and the USA.

I specialize in architecting & delivering cloud native, event driven modern applications that scale but yet are cost-effective.

I love leading in the intersection of Product Management & Technology. I am a polyglot & a full stack developer too.

When I am not working, I love running & reading books. My interests span across spirituality, life & productivity.

Simple Serverless Rule Engine

Simple Serverless Business Rules Engine

A lightweight, yet powerful framework for declaratively authoring business decisions. From a business perspective, the framework provides a clean segregation of data from the rules, thus enabling business users to model decisions easily.

Since the rules are declaratively specified, this framework frees the developers from writing repetitive code and enables them to focus on their core priorities.

This framework already powered more than a million decisions and can be deployed as a serverless function (FaaS) or as a container.

Mongogress Bridge

Mongogress Bridge - A serverless tool to transfer data from MongoDB to PostgreSQL in near real time

Mongogress Bridge is a near real time & horizontally scalable data transfer tool that ingeniously leverages MongoDB stitch trigger functions (Node.js) & AWS Simple Queue Service (SQS) to capture data changes in MongoDB and load them onto a target PostgreSQL database through a serverless function.

I designed, developed & deployed this tool within a week to enable Business Analytics on a separate Production BI database. This home-grown tool achieved a huge cost reduction in license costs. I wrote a tech decision on this tool and it has garnered 80K+ views (and counting). You can checkout the decision here.
