Senior Programmer – Developement
I have been with MENTIS for a long time, having joined when there were close to only ten employees in the company. My joining happened by chance – a relative of mine knew Rajesh (CEO of MENTIS) and had passed on my resume to him. I cracked the interview and joined, along with five others. Since then, we became a close-knit group, and today I have the pleasure of calling my teammates my best friends.
In terms of learning, I didn’t really know what to expect since this was my first corporate stint. Looking back now, I can tell you that it was immense. I have had the freedom to work on a countless number of computer languages, and company projects. One of my absolute favorite projects would be the creation of a new User Interface in Angular Java. It wasn’t a language I knew before, but the confidence my superiors and teammates had in me gave me the drive to learn it and excel at it. They also did a brilliant job in tutoring and training me, and it helped me learn the intricacies that went into the development aspect of it.
“I often work along with senior staff who are not only excellent mentors but are also very humble and fun to work with”.
Having started off with projects, I now work on our product developments, and I am proud to share that I have been recently promoted to a Senior Programmer. I often work along with senior staff, including Rajesh and Padma (Vice President – Customer Success), who are not only excellent mentors, but are also very humble and fun to work with. Similarly, I am glad to say that I have always worked with amazing teams, and everybody is very supportive of each other.
Coming to work-life balance, I never had much of an issue since my mother manages most of the household tasks, and I chip in wherever I can. However, with a pandemic going on, I really miss coming in to office, meeting my friends, interacting with them, brainstorming for new concepts and having fun working together. I hope this situation cools down, and I look forward to being back in office soon.
