Shirshanka Das grew up on the eastern side of India, near Calcutta. He did well in school, and got into IIT, choosing Computer Science as his major. Post undergrad, he got his PhD at UCLA, eventually working at PayPal and Yahoo on massive architectural systems. Outside of tech, he’s married with 2 kids, he’s an accomplished Indian vocalist, and has a passion for swimming, which he states is his therapy.
After spending over a decade at LinkedIn, Shirshanka had led the teams supporting all things data. He created a unified approach to data discovery, governance, and observability – while he was at the company. He open sourced the product, called DataHub, and eventually created a managed version.
This is the creation story of Acryl Data.
