About Me

Hi there, I’m Ronak. Welcome to my site!

I am a Software Engineer leading the Kubernetes team at LinkedIn. As part of the compute team, I am helping build LinkedIn’s next-gen compute infrastructure on top of Kubernetes and enabling rest of the company to deploy all workloads on it. Before this, I was leading initiatives to automatically upgrade OS across LinkedIn’s compute fleet.

Prior to LinkedIn, I worked at Insight Data on the Data Engineering Fellows Program. At Insight, I worked on

  • Setting up an internal data platform
  • Developed internal tools and set up a CI pipeline
  • Co-led the Data Engineering Fellows Program

I love spending the time to understand the systems I work on and the systems underlying them. I deeply care about understanding why incidents happen, when they happen, so that we can build better, reliable systems moving forward. And when developing + operating software, I like to believe in what I once heard - “No Black Boxes!".


I also host a podcast, Software Misadventures, with my very good friend Guang. This podcast is about not just the technologies, but the people and stories behind them. In every episode, Guang and I sit down with engineers, founders, and investors to chat about their paths, lessons they’ve learned and of course, the misadventures along the way. You can check out the latest episodes here.
