Providing simple yet innovative solutions to ambiguous customer problems is what I do on a daily basis at Amazon. My work revolves around identifying customer pain-points, prototyping technologically innovative and automated solutions for it and then the process of productionalizing the product. With a combination of Customer Obsession and Ownership, My focus is on delivering high quality projects to the customer in a timely fashion.
As a tenured engineer at Amazon, majority of my work is around designing systems and architecting software for problems at scale. My range of experience across Amazon is also varied from having created a Geolocation Service to facilitate Alexa customer experiences to creating big data process system to process world wide Amazon finance operation data. I am also a Security Certifier, Student and University Panel Interviewer, SDE Bootcamp Trainer and a Mentor at Amazon.
My biggest strength is my velocity for delivery of products and technology. I continuously balance my skill to deliver with speed and emphasise on software quality and operational excellence. Training fellow engineers and establishing processes and standards from scratch is another forte that has helped me excel at my job. I have mentored about 25+ new Amazonian and trained 1000+ new SDEs as they begin their journey at Amazon. I am deeply invested in everyone I train or mentor. I have worked across countries in Silicon Valley, Seattle and India. I can help my mentees with the international tech interviews as well and how to excel at them.
Within Amazon, I am an interview panelist with around 60+ interviews hiring for roles like SDE, Data Engineers, Support Engineers, Software Development Manager and Technical Program Managers. Being a seasoned interviewer and a University hiring panelist, I understand the tech requirements for FAANG companies very well, and can definitely assist one on what it takes to get to them.
I've created a dedicated Slack for all my mentees with common goals. You get to meet and collaborate with people all over the world. The self sustained community of engineers or to-be engineers provides constant motivation, prep material, e-books, regular coding challenges and peer reviews!
We will send you a quick email if Sagar has new open spots for mentorship, and only in that case!
