Senior Software Engineer at EPAM
Tell us about yourself.
I am Atul. I was born in a town in North India. I was quite a book- worm during my college days but now it has been replaced by a love for travel. I believe traveling is all about enjoying the journey rather then the destination. Even though I still enjoy reading books, I love watching 3D movies and also trying out different cuisines. I am married and blessed with a cute little daughter.
How did you become an engineer?
I decided to become an engineer because I have always been fascinated by how everything in life works. It is interesting to take up different and difficult challenges and try to solve them. The satisfaction I have after solving a difficult problem is an experience that I cherish and one that led me to become an engineer.
What brought you to EPAM?
When I learned about a job opportunity with EPAM, I did quite a bit of research since EPAM was a recent entrant in the Indian IT landscape. I learned a lot of positive facts about the company. The fact that EPAM emphasizes an engineering culture and the opportunity to work with exciting clients and on cutting-edge technology stacks made me want to join EPAM. Looking back, I believe it was a great decision!
What do you look forward to the most about working here?
I love working on some challenging development work that solves critical problem for a customer. Some of the solutions that we offer are leveraging areas such as Machine Learning and Big Data which is amazing.
What has been your best moment at EPAM so far?
I was part of a team assigned with a challenging task that previously a different solution provider was unable to deliver. We quickly suggested the architecture and process that was never done before. We were able to work on the task and offer the solution that amazed the client. It felt great to deliver advanced solutions to our clients that they previously thought were impossible, and we helped them achieve their business goals.
