Shayan Hosseini


My name is Shayan Hosseini. I’m a computer science MSc student at the University of British Columbia. I’m working with Ivan Beschastnikh on distributed systems and software verification. I completed my BSc in computer engineering at the University of Tehran.

From 2015 to 2020, I worked at Cafe Bazaar, the most popular Android application store in Iran, with more than 35 million users. During these years, I served as a Software Engineer, Product Manager, Technical Lead, and Software Engineering Manager. One of my main contributions was building a distributed object storage and a content delivery network. Moreover, I was one of the co-founders of Cafe Bazaar Cloud, which is a subsidiary of Cafe Bazaar that provides public cloud services to other companies (rebranded as Sotoon later).

In 2021, I started the Peydaa project. Peydaa is a non-profit platform to make transparency in the Iranian job market. It is a website where people can anonymously share their salary and experience of working in companies with others. Currently, more than 600 users have shared their salaries and experiences on Peydaa.

I have an extensive background in algorithms, combinatorics, and graph theory. In high school, I won a silver medal in the Iranian National Olympiad in Informatics. Later, I achieved 2nd place in Tehran ICPC Regional Contest twice in 2016 and 2017. Also, I got 56th place in ICPC World Finals 2017.

I am now working on the PGo project. PGo compiles verifiable models of distributed systems into implementations in Go.
