LaunchFast Logo Introducing - Astro boilerplate

Rishi Raj Jain


Hey, I’m Rishi Raj Jain. I'm currently looking for new full time roles (previously, Technical Support Engineer at Lemon Squeezy, Technical Customer Success Manager at Edgio, and Ambassador at Storyblok).

I love to bring a positive attitude to the table, and like to spend my free time in nature or enjoying myself with family. (Ultra) Bullet Chess is my favourite sport.


Laid Off From Lemon Squeezy

I was laid off from Lemon Squeezy in October (it's my birthday month but all is unfair anyways, haha). The time I worked on hell of a scale, crushing over 1200+ customer support tickets with the team to bring them down to 100+. Basically, achieved what I was hired for.


Inspired by Marc Lou, I launched and made 300$ from it nearly immediately. is a Boilerplate Code for Astro. Launch your SaaS in a day!

Joined Lemon Squeezy as Technical Support Representative

Lately, Lemon Squeezy was under the bus for a slow support. They hired me to fix it. Killed it with the team by bringing down the tickets from 1200+ to 100+.

Launched BookSpace: Bookings Made Simple For Institutions

Not the skin this time, a simple problem statement. Bookings in institutions are manual. It's a pain in the ass. Launched the SaaS in a month on Product Hunt that aims to automate the handling of bookings in an institution.

Laid Off From Edgio/Limelight Networks/Layer0

I was laid off in the later rounds of re-structuring at Edgio. The time I had was an exponential learning and exposure. Notably, Ajay Kapur, Howie Ross, Patrick Saweikis, Ishan Anand, Tevfik Sertel, Tom Mount, Jeff Patzer, Petr VečeΕ™a, Aleksandar Perkucin and Raees Iqbal have been the best colleagues anyone could've asked for.

Gave my first coding session! πŸŽ‰ Topic: 'Dynamically Static Blogs'

Establishing an online presence is hard, isn't it? Have you tried to launch your own blogs only to get stuck trying to do it "the right way"? I've been there. I'd waste time dealing with complex tech instead of bringing out myself. Then, I started building my portfolio from scratch with Next.js, TailwindCSS, Storyblok and Layer0 and believe me, it's the best tech stack ever. The session was all about how I deployed a performance-first, incrementally static regenerated blogs without compromising my requirements. Slides
