Meet our People: Mukesh
Mukesh builds robust back end systems. When he is done with that, he wants to turn his focus towards social service.
When did you join DataWeave?
I joined DataWeave around mid November, 2013.
What is your role?
I work with the Back end Engineering team of PriceWeave. I am a Python developer. I am responsible for building some of the crawler components as well as diagnostics tools.
What is your background?
I have been a programmer throughout. Before joining DataWeave, I was working with another Bangalore based start up called PromptCloud for a few years.
Why did you join DataWeave?
I have always been curious about upcoming start ups, especially in the data aggregation and analytics space. I also wanted to explore more of me. After interviewing with DataWeave I found the work and the people very conducive for this.
Can you share some highlights from your work?
Many things, actually. We are a start up, so we face a lot of interesting engineering challenges on a daily basis. I recently implemented a customizable “user friendly” generic crawler that meets most of the crawling needs of PriceWeave. I also implemented and integrated a logger into the crawler pipeline. These systems improved the scalability and robustness of our crawlers.
I am the more curt and serious member of a boisterous team.
Our greatness doesn’t lie in never falling but in rising every time we fall.
