Parveen Kaler

Entrepreneur • Developer • Engineering Manager

Hi. I am Parveen Kaler.

I am a Senior Mobile Engineering Manager at Earnin. I was the first hire in the Vancouver office and helped build the best mobile engineering team in the city.

I live in beautiful Vancouver, BC. I moved to Vancouver in 1998 to attend Simon Fraser University. I completed a Bachelors of Science in Computing Science from SFU.

I have lead small startup teams that bring version 1.0 of products to life. This includes building out a distribution strategy, product management, project management, and metrics while talking to customers, I build businesses. I recently shipped Impact.fit.

I have experience shipping projects for very large enterprise customers with millions of daily active users. I worked on the Product Page on Walmart's US iPhone App.

I am the owner of Smartful Studios. Smartful Studios is focused on mobile strategy and iPhone software development. The company was founded in January of 2008.

I have 12+ years building iOS Apps. I have 20+ years of software development experience on many different platforms (Web, iOS, Mac, PC, XBox 360, Sony PS3, Sony PSP). I am a polyglot programmer that writes code in Swift and Objective-C for iOS and Ruby for web development.
