Rishi Goomar

Hey, I’m Rishi! I’m 31 years old. I am currently residing in Chicago, IL. I’m a Staff Site Reliability Engineer @ Lattice and Advisor @ Qpoint.

Beginning my career in Front End Development, I soon broadened my horizons to encompass Full Stack Development, mastering JavaScript and Java. I didn’t stop there - drawn to the challenges and intricacies of underlying infrastructure components and developer tooling, I ventured further into the tech stack.

I have been on teams focusing on Continuous Integration & Delivery, Developer Tooling, Site Reliability, and Cloud Infrastructure. I aspire to grow both technically and as a leader.

I am a…

Software Enthusiast

I am curious and enjoy digging into different aspects of software. I got the nickname “Spelunker” at my first job because of this. I spend at least 30 minutes every day reading news, blog posts, or articles around technical concepts or what is going on in the tech industry. Occasionally, sharing those links with others (#tech-news for those of you that know). I actively experiment with new frameworks, languages, and tools always keen on balancing the use of new and old technology for different use-cases.


I always look for opportunities to improve, whether it is personally or professionally. Empowering those around me to succeed and trying to inspire as much as possible. I give people the benefit of the doubt as people can change given the opportunity to do so.


I’m big on having empathy for those you work with and those around you. I am a foodie and love to try new restaurants or different foods & drinks. My love for new culinary experiences extends to my professional life - I’m always hungry for new challenges and opportunities to learn. I enjoy dancing, even if I’m the only one doing so. Occasionally, you’ll find me playing League of Legends with my friends.
