About Yourself |
Tell us about your educational background and previous experiences.

From a B.Tech. grad in Electronics and Communication to a Cloud & DevOps Architect, my career has been an adventure! Calicut University equipped me with electronics and communication knowledge, but life had other plans. I began my career as a System Administrator, transformed into a Middleware Engineer, and eventually embraced the role of a Cloud Engineer. Finally, I embraced the all-encompassing world of DevOps. After all, the Cloud and DevOps are like blurred lines, so Cloud & DevOps Architect it is!

How did you hear about us and what interested you in joining our team?

My journey to CloudifyOps was serendipitous, guided by connections that spanned professional and personal realms.  Here’s how it unfolded:

A common friend who understood my passion for cutting-edge technology introduced me to the CEO of CloudifyOps. Over a telephonic discussion with my CEO, I glimpsed the company’s vision which is a fusion of Cloud Innovation and DevOps excellence. Curiosity arose, and I reached out to my former managers and mentors. They held the company in high regard, acknowledging its remarkable growth and distinctiveness compared to other organizations. Their insights aligned with my vision and aspirations. Finally, I met the CEO and CTO in person. Their enthusiasm was contagious, the vision unwavering. That conversation sealed the deal — I wanted to be part of this journey.

About Your Profession |

What do you love most about the Cloud and DevOps field?

The Cloud and DevOps field is like a dynamic puzzle that never stays the same – It’s an ever-evolving landscape where innovation is constant.

Here’s why I’m hooked:

Imagine a tech landscape that’s always evolving, like a living organism. That’s the Cloud and DevOps world. It keeps me on my toes, learning, adapting, and staying ahead of the game.

Every time we architect a solution that runs like a clock (It is tough!), it’s a victory. It’s the satisfaction of knowing that – we’re not just keeping up but shaping the future.  We’re like digital wizards. We tackle challenges such as scaling, security, and efficiency and devise refined solutions.

What is on your wish list for CloudifyOps?

Firstly it’s important to me that we stay ahead of the curve regarding technology. We should always be eager to embrace changes, innovations, and trends. The digital tide never waits, and neither should we. Whether it’s AI, serverless computing, or be it anything, let’s embrace change with open arms.

Additionally, I am looking forward to expanding our knowledge of emerging technologies so that we’re always ready to tackle challenges head-on.  When the next big wave arrives, we won’t just ride it; we’ll ride it like pros.  My vision also includes empowering every team member to reach their potential by fostering an environment where ideas flow freely and partnerships thrive.

How do you motivate yourself to do the best for yourself and the organization?

Motivation is the secret sauce that propels us beyond the ordinary. For me, it’s a blend of personal satisfaction, a dash of curiosity, and a whole lot of comradeship. Let me break it down.

  • Picture that moment the code “compiles” flawlessly, and the “deployment” sails smoothly. It’s like nailing a high note in a symphony.
  • Imagine you step onto the field, and your team surrounds you. They’re not just colleagues; they’re cheerleaders. It’s like having an IPL crowd chanting, “You’ve got this!” except it’s for every sprint, every deployment.
  • Then it is about constantly wanting to get better and find new, better, or smarter ways of doing things.

So, it’s a mix of wanting to do great things, personal growth, and the awesome people I work with – that keeps me motivated to give my all, not just for myself but for the success of our organization.

I’ve had the privilege of working on high-impact projects, which has deepened my technical expertise and leadership skills. It’s all about projects that move mountains—cloud migrations, DevSecOps fortresses, you name it. Each project has been a masterclass.

The collaborative and challenging environment here has been instrumental in my growth as a technology leader. We’re not lone wolves here, rather we’re like a wolf pack. The collaborative buzz here is electric.

What was the most fun moment with the team?

The most delightful moments with the team often occur during cultural festival celebrations. Forget deadlines, the most epic team fun explodes during these celebrations! We ditch work worries and unite to celebrate. Sure, there’s feasting, merriment & games, but the real blast comes from diving into the spirit of our traditions. These shared experiences – the laughter, the colors, the delicious chaos – become priceless memories that forge an unbreakable bond between us.
