At bankbazaar, I was also involved in hiring 20 odd engineers. I introduced functional programming and migrated the service layer from soap to rest. I was involved in training the campus hires on web services and functional programming. I was also responsible for health of all webservices @ bankbazaar. I left bankbazaar just before series B to pursue entrepreneurial activities.

I build sokratik where we build a good product which did not have any customer. Post sokratik, I have been in a startup trying to sell used vehicles online @ gozoomo. Here in I have built the technology product and organization that saw two rounds of funding.

Prior to bankbazaar, I worked for a year @ partygaming and was a part of the team that took care of all transactions across products.
