What I'm looking for

A results driven fast paced environment. Looking foreward to working in a team with the drive for excellence. Seniors and leaders who appreciate initiatives and leadership is what I am looking for in my next workplace. This brings along the chance to learn and grow, which is very cruicial for me in my next job.

Results‐driven Software Engineer and tech geek with a diverse skillset and a passion for innovation and problem‐solving. Experienced in delivering robust solutions and optimizing software performance. I excel in fast‐paced environments, tackling complex challenges with analytical precision.

I hold a Bachelor of Technology degree with majors in Information Technology from Birla Institute of Technology (BIT), Mesra. Throughout my career, I've been fortunate to encompass my desire to be product-oriented, from thinking through the product implications of what I am building to contributing your unique ideas of how to improve the product. This has been showcased multiple times in my job roles and the experience has equipped me with a deep understanding of core engineering concept applications and a proven track record of exceeding expectations when it came to delivering results.

Currently, as a Software Development Engineer at Captain Fresh, I am an integral part of the team responsible for designing and implementing user-facing product features. I developed the finance backend for the firm, working closely with the Product Managers, and taking active part in business-product-tech discussions. Through close collaboration with superiors and Product Managers, I successfully streamlined processes, leading to an outstanding 400% performance enhancement over the pre-existing payments setup. My technical expertise spans Java/SpringBoot and Javascript/ReactJS with exposure to PostgreSQL and MongoDB.

During my tenure as a Software Engineering Intern at D.E. Shaw & Co., I developed an in-house full-stack toolset for the ABS team. This toolset significantly reduced time wastage by eliminating the dependence of Finance stakeholders over Ops team, demonstrating my ability to optimize workflows effectively. I employed ReactJS, Redux and Python to implement this project.

Throughout my academic journey, I have undertaken diverse projects spanning WebApps, Android applications, including the latest one upon Google File Systems. Apart from these, I was also an active participant in Capture the Flag events.

My academic background has equipped me with a solid foundation in Software Development, Data Structures, Algorithms, DBMS, and OS concepts. Proficient in Java and Javascript, I possess a strong grasp of Object-Oriented Design Patterns, SpringBoot, SQL and NoSQL databases, NodeJS, ReactJS, and Linux environments.
