At Goldman Sachs, which I joined through campus placements, I worked both as a software engineer and security engineer. I made an internal web app for banking systems in ReactJS, which is in use across different teams even today. I promoted security best practices, organised talks, and a successful CTF for colleagues. I designed architectures of new systems and products, implemented new features, built data pipelines, and fixed bugs for the ’Honest Dollar by Goldman Sachs’.

Kayako as Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Intern May, 2017 - July, 2017

AWS Datadog Chef Redis Elastic Search

  • Configured Datadog and Newrelic for system-wide monitoring and alerting.
  • Wrote chef recipes for monitoring tools configs management.

It was a great place to get to know a large infrastructure and I finally started automating things in the cloud. I learned about SRE protocols, provisioning, automating deployments but unfortunately, I couldn’t work on those tools due to time limitation.
