Hey everyone, My name is Saran, and I am currently Head of Infrastructure & SRE at Twilio Segment. I live in Austin with my wife, Usha, and daughters Rithika (12) and Eesha (9). I'm a curious learner and avid reader of technology, entrepreneurship, and leadership books. I have helped several team members with their career options, and I continue to have career conversations with teammates from previous jobs. I enjoy helping others at their jobs or careers. I am looking forward to listening, learning, and helping you in any way I can.
