I am a Software Engineer II at Booking.com, the largest travel company in the world. Before joining here, I was working as a Senior Software Engineer at Grab, the leading delivery, mobility, financial and enterprise services company in Southeast Asia.
In my career so far, I have always been working as a backend engineer. I have experience in designing and building distributed systems at high scale and developing microservices and backend systems from scratch.
I have a personal blog on Medium where I sometimes write stuff I find interesting, especially about tech. This is my blog: https://medium.com/@mottakin.
I am also an author at Educative.io. I have my own full-fledged course in the platform. The course is about the fundamentals of distributed systems targeted at people with little to no experience in the field. The course can be found here: https://www.educative.io/courses/introduction-to-distributed-systems-for-dummies
In 2023, I launched my own newsletter, named Biweekly Engineering. The purpose of the newsletter is to share curated software engineering articles to its subscribers. You can find the newsletter here: https://biweekly-engineering.beehiiv.com/
In the past, I have mentored people I have worked with. It is an exhilarating experience to see them succeed in reaching their goals under my guidance. Not only that, I have always felt that my knowledge is firmer when I share. This is what brought me to the platform - to mentor new people, and also to build a new network.
I can help you with career decisions, technical interviews (both system design and coding interviews), standard coding practices, promotions in tech, good engineering culture, and overall growth as an engineer.
At Grab, I learned how to grow as an engineer while pushing for a promotion to a senior role. When I decided to switch to a different company, I interviewed with Meta, Amazon, Microsoft, and Booking.com. I put rigorous effort into preparing, and quite fortunately, I managed to crack all of the interviews.
If you are in need of help in progressing your career, both from a technical and growth perspective, I can certainly help you. I am looking forward to sharing my experience and knowledge with you so that you can excel in your career ahead. :)

Mottakin was friendly and together we identified in which areas I should improve in to achieve my career goals. I would highly recommend him for anyone either working in software engineering or someone looking to break into the industry.

Motta is an amiable and patient mentor. He personalized his advice to my learning path, ensuring it matched my resources. What stood out were his thorough explanations, often using his own experiences as examples. He also pointed me to well-chosen articles for deeper understanding. Motta's guidance was practical, insightful, and incredibly valuable.
