I am a curious person based out of San Francisco Bay Area in California, USA. As a technologist, I am C\R Strategy Partner's Chief Technical Partner, bringing the expertise of more than 25 years of building and launching products to the firm's clients. I honed my skills in product architecture and engineering management at leading companies, including Yahoo, where I designed and delivered the company's global application architecture.
I built my entrepreneurial muscle at a half-dozen Silicon Valley startups, providing technical leadership to global, multi-disciplined teams working in the mobile, edtech, and fintech sectors, among others. A collaborator and builder at heart, I specialize in efficient and effective product development, cloud migration strategies, and digital transformation.
I work with the C\R Strategy Partner teams to evaluate clients' technical capacity, identify gaps, and guage opportunities. Then, as builders do, I get to work to make those opportunities real.
As an entrepreneur, I cofounded my first company in 2003. I exited (unprofitably, I must add) after 16 months when my inexperience in other aspects than technology brought me down. "Brought me down" may not be the right metaphor, "elevated me up" could have been equally apt since I learnt things that nobody can teach but experience and failure. I also helped built the first online Bengali magazine Parabaas in 1997. Ask me about this sometime. I have some interesting stories.
As an writer and songwriter, I work in my native language Bengali.
