Software Engineer


Hi, my name is Hajime Shiozawa ("塩澤 元" in Japanese). I’m a software engineer in Tokyo. I have nearly 10 years of hands-on experiences and wide-range skills in software development.

Now I lead development of a mobile app "Scene: Organize & Share Photos" at Ripplex Inc.. As a senior developer I am responsible for overall development from server-side (AWS, Docker, Scala, Java) to client-side (Android, JavaScript, HTML/CSS). The app "Scene" has been downloaded more than five million times so far and nominated for Google Play best apps two times!

Prior to Ripplex, I was a software engineer at Fixstars Corp.. I developed middleware for financial applications using C++. See my LinkedIn profile for more career details.

I love productivity hacks and its tools, Pomodoro Technique, Get Things Done (GTD), The Cycle System, Todoist, Evernote and so on. I always seek to a new way to improve my productivity. Please let me know if you know good hacks or tools to improve productivity 😆.
