Hello! Welcome! You made it to my website and I'm so glad to see you here.

Picture of Angus Lam

My name is Angus, a software engineer based in New York currently at Stripe. My skills include full-stack engineering, product design, and project management, and I specialize in building technology enabled products with delightful experiences.

I have experience working at technology startups of sizes small and large in San Francisco, New York, and Buffalo. Before Stripe, I've worked at Lugg, Optimizely, and a few Buffalo startups. I've built software from zero-to-one MVPs to scalable enterprise grade features.

On this site, you'll find a collection of my professional and personal work from a breadth of my interests, hobbies, adventures, and brainworms.

Why does the site look like a default nginx page?

I have very fond memories of snooping autoindex pages on poorly configured servers back in the late 2000s. It's hard to find those nowadays. "Browser default" HTML also has a brutalistic and uninstrusive quality in the comtemporary time. It has allowed me to focus on creating more novel works rather than tweaking every pixel on this site to stylistically tie together everything I work on, no matter how disparate, in a futile manner. That is not to say there's no styling here—every detail is still meticulously chosen. I could have went for a more conventional modern minimalist design, but what's the fun in that?
