About

I am a Software Developer by profession and by my own pure  💖 for it. I believe that knowledge is power, and to keep that power with me, I like to explore new things and study about how the industry is growing and how big players are using the technology to provide the best in class experience to customers like you and me. Also I consider OSS to be a very important part of anyone who is in this industry, be it a student who is currently learning things or a tech giant.

I also love to drive and travel to see the beauty that the  🌏 has left there for me to explore. I participate in fund raisers for humane causes on a monthly basis and I suggest you to do the same. I consider my family and friends as the most important part of me and love to spend time with them. 😃

Work

smallcase (Feb 2019 - Present)

Presently I am a Backend Developer at smallcase. As Fortune India said, smallcase is a new way to invest in the stock market and could change the way how people invest their money.

At smallcase I mainly handle the smallcase API be it B2C or B2B. I have worked on products such as the smallcase platform, publisher and gateway. I took a good portion of my time to understand how stock market and brokers work and how we are providing our product on top of it. smallcase gave me an opportunity to understand the basics of how the financial system works which I had no idea about previously.


Education

I studied Computer Science and Engineering at Chitkara University, Punjab (Batch of 2020).

Community and Leadership
  • Was the Lead of Google Developer Student Club (DSC), lead a community of student developers, organizing various hackathons and workshops for university students on various topics.

  • Google Summer of Code 2020 mentor. Volunteered to work with the students to help and coordinate them with the best of my abilities and skills.
