/ / What I do at Synechron

Agile methodologies

I work as a Lead in Software at Synechron. My primary work deals involving Open Source CMS(s) and website development using HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL. Over the last 4-5 years I got a chance to work with a variety of clients and their websites. I have also been actively involved in project management where we have delivered 2-3 websites involving aggressive clients and deadlines. I play a key role in maintaining the client relationship for these projects and worked as a technical project manager. I like to use tools such as Basecamp and Jira in my projects. Agile methodologies is what I follow in most of the projects.

A DAY IN THE LIFE

Challenges never stop coming

/ / Why I joined Synechron

Challenges never stop coming

I always like to challenge myself. It had been almost 5 years working at a start-up doing the monotonous work. I had the thirst to work on some emerging technologies and fresh content websites. Synechron offered me just what I was expecting when I joined in June 2011. The challenges never stop coming by and this has become an on-going process since then. The exact work for which Synechron hired me was related to an e-commerce website with close coupling with an ERP. This website had to be built from scratch using Magento Enterprise. This kind of opportunity, website, architecture and of course the work involved, pulled me towards joining Synechron.

I am a sports person. Being a football lover I am a diehard Manchester United fan and I follow the English and European football very closely. I am always keen to know the latest things ongoing in the gadget world. I love playing console games like FIFA, Call of Duty, etc. I watch all kinds of movies. I have a fascination for the CGI effect in the movies like Transformers, etc. I read books where I am big fan of Dan Brown. Video documentaries on famous worldwide conspiracies sometimes become my weekend entertainment!
