Hi! 👋

My name is Monte Thakkar and here is a bit about me.

I am a full-stack engineer that lived in San Francisco until 2019. During my time in the Bay Area, I worked at a short-term rental startup - Pillow - which got acquired by Expedia in 2018.

I currently work remotely from Bangalore, India as an iOS engineer for Expedia.

I am also working on my own startup, Kandou which aims to help others make a positive impact in their community through volunteering. Kandou provides tools and resources to companies to help organize & manage their CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) programs easily. Reach out to for more information.
