About Me

Howdy! I'm Ayush Gupta. A mobile & web app developer, who enjoys building, learning and exploring things that live on the web.

Fondly known as GuptaJi. My fingers are either on a keyboard or on the shutter button.

I'm currently working as a Senior Mobile Frontend Engineer at Razorpay - India's payment product suite for businesses, where I'm a part of our payments mobile app & GraphQL team.

Here are a few technologies I love working on:

  • React Native
  • React
  • JavaScript
  • GraphQL
  • TypeScript
  • NextJS
  • HTML5 & CSS3

Fun Facts

For a joke I wrote on Twitter, I once received a ₹1 tip through my tip jar on Twitter. Someone else tipped me ₹2 for my art & shitposting, when I posted this story on Instagram. I can now declare with certainty that I have made money off of shitposting!
