To further enhance my professional skills and in quest for learning I joined Wiotel Inc as a Software Engineer. During this period I was involved in developing a web based control system to monitor and report remote hosts/services using REST web services. The unique startup experience taught me about analyzing solution for problems, breaking down tasks, researching for solution and learning required things on fly.
Presently, IÃ‚â€™m working as a Software Engineer in Retail Solutions (formerly T3Ci) which has provided me an opportunity to explore ETL Processing/Data Mining techniques. My current responsibility includes analyze/design/developing a test framework for QA process, maintaining/enhancing our SAAS based analytic products and assisting production team.
