A little bit about me.

I am an incoming software engineer at Stripe. Prior to this, I was a Staff Software Engineer at HBO working on HBO Now and HBO Max Commerce and Billing Services. I completed my Master of Engineering at Cornell Tech in 2022 and my Bachelor's in Computer Science, with a minor in Entrepreneurship, at the University of Washington (UW), Seattle in 2017. During my time at UW I interned at HBO, Shippable, VMware and IBM. During my time at UW I was an Executive Organizer for DubHacks, Vice Chair for UW-ACM and Co-President, StartupUW. My passions lie in writing, cooking and digital photography, where I blend creativity, art and technology. In our spare time, my fiancè and I enjoy hikes and are very passionate about animal rescue and have had the pleasure of fostering several dogs. Feel free to reach out to me at mk@mahirk.com
