Welcome to hyperbola, the online portfolio and web presence of Ryan Lopopolo. This is mostly a microblog and contact page. For projects, see my GitHub.

oh hai!

I'm a software engineer working at Stripe in Seattle. I am a generalist with experience building APIs, mobile SDKs, backend services, ETLs, and infrastructure automation.

hyperbo.la is a way in which I keep my skills sharp when I'm not working. The site is built with python, django, webpack, AWS, vagrant, ansible, and terraform. The code is open source.

I am a git fanboy. I think I like ruby better than python nowadays; but I prefer django to rails. Scala is slowly seducing me and golang is giving me goosebumps. Terraform and AWS are my new toys.

ESPN is my favorite news source. I love sneakers and discovering new music.

Current Pursuits

Working on expanding Stripe into Latin America. Focused on supporting new payment methods and financial rails in Brasil and México like Boletos, OXXO, and card installments. Building APIs, settlement pipelines, and ops reporting jobs.
