“If you don’t like what’s being said, change the conversation.”

Which industry has been your métier and what has your work portfolio been like over the years?
I started my career in insurance and financial services and had the opportunity to work in hi tech and investment services as well.

What was your discipline in college?
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Electronics and Communications and a master’s in Business Administration.

According to you, which technical and business skills are your forte?
During my “tech” years, I worked a lot on data transformation and warehouses. I have also picked up business analysis skills along my journey and requirements elicitation is something that I enjoy and am good at I think :).

What do you like the most about Enquero and what attracted you to Enquero?
I admire three things about Enquero: The leadership encourages an entrepreneurial mindset and is always willing to hear new ideas
The flat hierarchy structure where everyone is accessible
The opportunity to mold a unique culture at a young company such as us.

What do you do in your leisure time?
I enjoy reading, watching Netflix and playing table tennis. The popular bay area pastime of hiking is something I am picking up.

Can you tell us a little about your journey? Your first job and lessons learnt from your experience; that you would like to share as inspiration for others:
My first job was as a software engineer at an insurance client. The skills that I learnt during the first year of my job really set the path for the next 5 years and gave me opportunities that otherwise would have been difficult. Hence, I would say that choose your first job carefully as that will have long-term influence on your career.

I have lived and worked in the following cities / countries (I am a global citizen)
Mangalore, Bangalore, Milwaukee and Bay Area.
