About Me

Hi there, I'm Nikki.  I'm a senior software engineer developing and supporting the core search service infrastructure and algorithms behind GIPHY's search engine.
The work also involves introducing features, new signals to search via natural language processing, computer vision, and user engagement data analysis.

Previously, I worked on product discovery and search for, where I was involved in indexing, query execution, relevancy, metrics tracking, creating reliable and performant systems, and scaling for the future. Ask me about Black Friday scaling!
