👋 Hi, I'm Takuya

Takuya Kitazawa is a software engineer based in Vancouver. I have worked as a full-stack software engineer, OSS developer, data scientist, machine learning engineer, and product manager for 6+ years.

I'm passionate about bridging a gap between scientific theory and real-world practice in industry. Throughout my career, I have practically acted as a data scientist, technical evangelist, sales engineer, product manager, machine learning engineer, and software engineer through the experience of contributing to OSS for scalable ML, building out-of-the-box ML application, presenting at conferences, and working on a variety of customer-facing opportunities.
