👩🏻‍💻 Work experience

Senior Software Engineer

OnceHub, Dehradun, India – (June 2019 - Present)

I am working as a full stack engineer, looking after core areas like the dashboard of the application and a few micro services which are responsible for piping the data into the dashboard.

I primarily work with JavaScript based technologies like Node.js, TypeScript and Angular. Besides that, I also dabble with some DevOps related stuff everyday, using tools like Kubernetes, Docker and Jenkins.

Software Engineer

Tata Consultancy Services, Gurgaon, India – (Dec 2011 - May 2019)

I have held many roles during my tenure at TCS. I have worked with various tech stacks like J2EE, Android and Node.js. At the beginning for my career, I also doubled as an Oracle database administrator.

Due to the nature of work at TCS, I got the opportunities to work on several projects from various fields. This helped me to build good interpersonal skills in addition to the technical skills.


🛠 Skills

💻 Technology

Javascript ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My "native" programming language, I have worked with it for over 4 years. I've used it in the front-end with React and Angular, in the back-end for APIs with Node and Express and for testing automation using Mocha and later on, Jest. I am also proficient at TypeScript, which is a type safe superset of JavaScript.

React ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It is the front-end library of my choice. I have been working with it for almost 3 years now. Although I don't use React at my work, I am maintaining an open source project CourseLit. It uses React heavily as it is based on Next.js. I actively follow the developments related to the library.

Docker + Kubernetes + Jenkins ⭐️⭐️⭐️

DevOps is the new normal. Technologies like containers and continuous delivery are ubiquitous. I have used Docker containers to package and distribute micro-services at my job. I am also maintaining a few images of my own open-source project.

I have hands-on experience with Kubernetes. We use Kubectl every single day to develop, test and ship our services.
