/ / Why I joined Synechron

A different DNA from other companies

The DNA of this organization is different from others. It is built for delivering quality and adding value in every task being carried out. From the conversation I had 6 years back, this particular point came out naturally. I always wanted to explore my entrepreneurial character while focusing on banking and IT world. This opportunity came from some like-minded people at Synechron and I grabbed it! I am enjoying the thrill of this leadership role which allows me to work with teams with high capability and capacity spread across the globe, helping make banking better!

/ / MY SKILLs, qualifications and experience

Post-graduation in Computer Science

After graduating from military college in degree, I completed my post-graduation in computer science from Pune University, India. The application of this discipline into various programming languages helped me develop my career in early days. As I was convinced that I could change my career path from a military college to computers, I made another successful move into the banking world and started learning banking as well as delivering solutions indirectly via a small organization and then large banks such as JPMC. Also, I enjoyed delivering some smart solutions in Fixed Income, Equites, Quant practice and Algorithmic trading at HSBC’s various locations globally, for a number of years before joining Synechron.
