Hello, I am Anjana Seevaratnam a Senior Engineering Leader, Technologist, and Technology Delivery Enthusiast. I am passionate in building high performing cross functional and cross cultural technology engineering teams focused on individual growth. With over 18 years of experience in the tech industry, I have cultivated skills and knowledge needed to succeed in this field.

I help organizations define and deliver strategic technology vision focused on enterprise and digital transformations, and help Software Engineers accelerate their career and professional growth. I have been mentoring and coaching new grads, Engineers either kicking off their career or transitioning to engineering management for several years through work, and other volunteering networks. I am excited and looking forward to offer my mentoring services on MentorCruise, as I will be able to empower and help mentees to achieve their career and professional aspirations.
