What is your role at Indix?
I’m a Software Engineer, currently a part of the CAM (Classifier – Attribute Extractor – Matcher) team. My work is focused on decreasing the time it takes data to reach the API from the moment it is first ingested. Prior to this, I was a part of the Data Ingestion team for more than a year.
What did you do before Indix?
I was a Software Engineer at Ivy Comptech (a part of PartyGaming) in Hyderabad. They made online gambling games and proclaimed themselves to be “the officiated criminals of the internet.”
Why did you join Indix?
I was impressed by the company’s ideas of creating a new space in product analytics, and the team which was spearheading it. The challenges were at a totally new level and realm compared to where I came from.
What have you learned working for a startup?
Maintenance and evolution are key to maturity. Different perspectives of looking at a problem make it simpler more often than not. Taking some extra time on a task and doing it better always pays off in the long run.
What technologies or trends get you most excited?
The trend of “using the right tool for a solution” excites me. Given the plethora of options today, getting work done most efficiently and easily needs experience. I believe we, as a company, do take this as a motto at work.
What do you do for fun?
I have my guitar (dabbler alert). I like playing (outdoors and indoors), listening to live and loud music, traveling and am crazy about soccer.
What is your favorite technology product?
Google Maps. It really has been a friend in need on both long and short journeys.
How would your friends describe you?
That I’m mad and lost maybe. I’d rather let my friends do this honor. Other than my bike riding skills, I’ve never really taken any feedback from friends.
