From Winning SXSW Impact Pediatric Pitch competition to Gold Stevie awards to PHL Startup of the Year
I started coding in 6th grade and absolutely love building softwares esp. SaaS. As a hands-on technical product manager, I have a proven track record of defining novel product concepts and leading product development from concept to launch.
As a PM, my expertise lies in understanding customer needs and defining innovative solutions, setting up high-performance teams and communicating with both technical and non-technical stakeholders across multiple teams and clients.
As a former entrepreneur, I lead with purpose and a style that promotes excellence. I believe in empowering teams to do their best and then trusting them to deliver results.
As a fellow in the Managing Director's office at SAP Labs India, I implemented predictive algorithms on SAP HANA to analyze 6 years of historical Cricket data.
This helped the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team in analyzing strengths and weaknesses of different teams and individual players during the auction process, and while selecting the playing eleven. KKR won back to back tournaments, and publicly credited our technology for their success.
Within 3 months of joining as an FTE, I was selected as the Employee of the Year in 2013, across 4500+ SAP Labs India employees.
While I took a leave of absence after my 1st year at Penn to build Keriton, building a mini search engine on AWS (based on the PageRank algorithm over 1M crawled pages) was one of the most interesting projects I completed while at school.
During that time, I also won 3 awards at PennApps - the world's largest hackathon - held twice annually at Penn.
One of my PennApps projects is what eventually became Keriton.
While I never had formal design training, I always had a keen design sense. Over the years, I have designed several web-app and mobile-app screens, one-pagers, brand guidelines and more.
A passionate Basketball player for the past 19+ years, I have played in several open-national and collegiate-national level tournaments, as well as in NBA India.
Amongst other things, Basketball has taught me a special way of life.
