Faces of HashedIn
Get to know our Hashers up close and personal!
Though a South Indian by birth, I grew up in the ‘Steel City’ of Bhilai, Chhattisgarh. Honestly, I was never deeply passionate about technology. I have been one of those people who developed an interest in this field over time, after making plenty of mistakes and gradually learning from them. Like others, I also thought that the IT industry would provide me a career path with endless progression and opportunities depending on my ability to learn new technologies. Thus, I chose software as a career mainly for the varied work structure, which is project-based. Good pay was definitely one of the deciding factors, but after being a part of this industry, I figured that there is much more to this job role than money.
I joined HashedIn by Deloitte as an Intern in February 2020, and I was trained in various tech stacks such as HTML, CSS, React, Python-Flask, DotNet-GraphQL, etc. During the HU bootcamp. The best thing about the internship was being taught from scratch. It was a journey that started with many new faces and concepts and ended with a great group of friends and sound technical concepts and tech stacks.
I am currently a Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET)-I and I have had the opportunity to be a part of some amazing projects. I am grateful to begin my career with a company which has great colleagues and understanding seniors. So far, I have been a part of two long-term projects and one short-term project. These have provided me with tremendous learning experience and exposure to different frameworks and methodologies. I am glad to have mastered the art of working under pressure and interacting seamlessly with clients.
As a Hasher, I have the freedom to grab opportunities that come my way and work on a variety of projects, both large and small. My typical workday begins with taking interviews, followed by attending project calls. The daily morning discussions on our progress and blockers for our tasks help us plan for the rest of the day. I do enjoy my current role but would like to explore other career tracks as well in future.
Learning new things has perennially excited me, and I always give my best to whatever I do. I usually try to communicate about my potential blockers to get help on time. These are some of the things that help me succeed and stay positive. In my free time, I am often found hogging on pizza and watching something fancy on Netflix! Else, I usually sing or play a sport as a hobby.
