Having 4+ years of experience in the IT industry, started my career as an ETL Developer/Administrator at Tata Consultancy Services, working for Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE). Being a huge movie buff, I never thought there would be anything else interesting other than movies in the workspace. But sooner, I was fascinated by the data and their ability to make the best decisions in the business. It was at this point that I realized, working with data is also a magical world like cinema. This carved my path towards data engineering and fetched me ‘On the Spot’ and ‘Walk the Talk’ Awards for delivering the best results as a Data Engineer.I was looking for an experience where I would get to work on all aspects of Data Analytics / Data Engineering project to understand and learn the process from start to end and work on the latest technologies in the Data world. That’s when I came to know about 5x and joined as a Lead Data Engineer on Feb 2022. With more than a year at 5x now, everyday I enjoy my work learning new things and I am also very glad in the way that I contributed to the growth of 5x.
