  • Friday 10th Feb7:30 PM

When I was growing up in India, I always thought how can I help the people around me to be a happy, productive, healthy and great human beings. Just doing a task or finishing a project was never enough for me. Engineering management fits very well with my passion of computer science and touching people’s lives. The biggest purpose for my job is the team that I manage and the responsibility that I have to create a positive impact in their career. I have worked in startups with less than 10 engineers and in corporates with more than 10000 engineers. I have managed developers, quality engineers, managers, devops and infrastructure teams. All engineers are great if you give them the right project or convince them that the project is right for them.
