Elasticsearch Architect at PayPal

I am an architect at PayPal with a proven track record of delivering simple, scalable and innovative solutions who has been recognized by the CTO, Engineering Managers, and Product Managers. I am skilled at efficiently managing relationships with the leadership teams and the client partners.

At PayPal, I am responsible for the delivery and the availability of the Search Platform which offers Elasticsearch as a service to cater to the needs of all search and business analytics use cases across the company.

My technical expertise complemented with my relationship building skill has been the core strength for my success in delivering the quality product in time leveraging the onsite-offshore model. The key strategy engaged was to highlight the contributions of the offshore team when it was time for kudos/rewards and shield the team from escalations. I take responsibility for failures and track the issues to closure to the utmost satisfaction of the customers.

NO-SQL, Elasticsearch, Couchbase, Relational Databases, Oracle, MySQL, Google Cloud Plaform, AI Machine Learning, Java, C++, Python, Automation, Puppet and Ansible.
