Why did you decide to join Gyaan?
I enjoy being challenged with a new problem every day, and Gyaan is just the place to do that. Being an analytical thinker, I'm drawn to this early-stage startup environment of tackling complex projects using the right tools and strategies, and I hope to make a meaningful impact on the development and triumph of the team. I find it incredibly rewarding to see the successful implementation and deployment of projects from concept to completion.
In addition, Gyaan’s workspace is truly groundbreaking, offering an innovative solution to an age-old problem in the Sales and Revenue industry by equipping teams with the right insights at the right time to increase their chances of closing deals. Gyaan empowers teams with the necessary information to focus on what's important rather than getting bogged down by complexity. I’m excited to be here and look forward to being pushed out of my comfort zone, learning from my peers to hone my skill set, and solving fun, technical problems with an amazing team.
Can you give us a quick overview of your background prior to Gyaan?
Prior to Gyaan, I spent the last 12 years architecting solutions. I started my career as a Software Developer and quickly moved up the ranks to become a Lead Developer and then a Software Architect.
With experience in leading and mentoring teams and in architecting, designing, and building scalable, fault-tolerant, and high-performance technology systems, I’ve gained a strong background in Software Backend Development as well as Data Engineering and Infrastructure. Moreover, I’ve developed excellent problem-solving and management skills and am able to think strategically and communicate complex technical concepts to both technical and non-technical audiences.
What are you hoping to accomplish in 2023 as Gyaan’s new Lead Software Architect?
I am bullish on Gyaan’s growth trajectory, and as the new Lead Software Architect, I’ll be responsible for ensuring we’re prepared for any scale that comes our way—building a strong framework that will enable us to seamlessly roll out new products and features as we continue to grow.
So, to that end, my goals for the company include the following:
- Establishing a strong framework that will enable us to easily roll out new features as we continue to grow
- Improving the performance, reliability, and robustness of our existing systems to ensure they can handle increased traffic and usage
- Implementing effective Software Engineering and DevOps practices to streamline our delivery process, improve efficiency, and reduce lead times
- Enhancing our monitoring and reporting systems so that we can quickly identify and address issues
What is a fun fact about you?
Music holds a special place in my heart, particularly Indian music. I enjoy listening to a wide variety of genres, from classical to devotional to film music. Music is a powerful therapy for me, and I often find myself taking an hour out of my day to listen to my favorite songs to relax and recharge.
Despite multiple attempts, I’ve yet to fully commit to learning music. However, with the new year, I’m determined to allocate time to rekindle my curiosity and love for learning a new instrument!
