What drove you to a career in Technology?
Since childhood I was very much impressed by newer technologies, whether it was a CD player (yes, remember old times) or it was teen-time with mobile phones and video games making me wonder how these things work. Though starting with graduation in Math’s honors, I felt no interest and decided to go for advanced degree in computer science and that’s how I started the journey in tech.
Were there any struggles for you to build a presence in Technology space?
Against the family wishes of me pursuing a career as teacher, revolt was interesting but dampening was the 2009 slowdown effect on market – not a great year to start in tech; it was a indeed a slow start where choices didn’t mean much.
I had to pick whatever came my way and started with not so engaging and repetitive work on server support, but I stuck out the long hours and non-innovative tasks, learning java on weekends to advance the career which finally yielded into a coding profile.
Coming to the United States again required switching to completely new technology, but I adapted and actually loved working in the new tech domain. Adaptability and persistence were the keys and will remain the traits to overcome the adversities and challenges in this ever-changing tech world.
What has your experience been to ‘find your place’ at Bitwise?
Bitwise gives true meaning to “Family @ Work.” I had never seen people come together so fast to help each other as it happens here at Bitwise.
Switching to a newer technology or a new client team has been a much smoother sail with every Bitwiser standing alert to help in any capacity he or she can.
I won’t lie, it’s not been a struggle to fit in and it’s been a charm to create a place for myself where I can now help others. Technologies change but culture stays and it’s awesome to be part of this culture.
