I'm Andrew Keturi, a Software Engineer based in the SF Bay Area.
I build thoughtful, responsible applications and games enjoyed by many. You can view some of my favorite projects I've created below.
Sessions was a platform for artists to make money through a variety of offerings: streaming events, selling personalized videos, sharing personalized content to subscribed fans, and more.
At its peak, the service had over 130k active musicians and 1.7m fans, generating $1m in paid ticket revenue during the pandemic. Headliner artists generated $200k monthly recurring revenue.
This was possible with the help of a close, caring, and focused engineering team. Contributing to the prospects of helping musicians earn meaningful income filled us with a strong sense of purpose. Here are some of my favorite things I worked on:
At Sessions we used 15Five to track team sentiment and highlight impacts individuals and teams had on others (via a virtual high-five). I've kept these snippets to remind myself the impact I've had on my former teammates.
