The most amazing...

...thing I've worked on is a framework to design and develop data-centered microservices without needing any coding.

Work Experience

Senior Technology Architect

2004 - PRESENT
Cognizant Technology Solution
  • Automated the approval/rejection of manual business processes using machine learning as well as exposing it as a service and deploying it in Azure.
  • Created a framework to enable the design and development of data-centered microservices without any coding.
  • Built a highly performant data processing pipeline using Spark RDDs to process millions of records from COBOL copybook, JSON, CSV, etc. into a Janus database and HBase including data quality, data validation, entity transformation, and lazy loading.
  • Served as the primary developer for building the MetLife WALL (batch jobs for the WALL and UI for the Research WALL) application, which changed the way that business operated at MetLife (Tiny.cc/m0q2pz).
  • Developed a library/product to build rich internet applications at the beginning of the web 2.0 era using Adobe Flex. Yakov Fain (a Java champion) had reviewed the product and provided his approval to use it across the enterprise.
  • Created an online application to automate deployment from StarTeam and LiveLink to multiple windows servers which saved $1 million per year for the client.
Technologies: MongoDB, Angular, React, Spark, Scala, Python, JavaScript, Spring Boot, Jakarta EE, Java

MetLife WALL

The MetLife Wall provides a 360° view of a customer’s policy, cutting across lines of business while consolidating and simplifying the presentation of data. The interface keeps a record of all the past interactions each customer may have had with MetLife across all its omnichannel touchpoints, such as the call center, in-person interactions with agents, as well as claims and policy updates. Since the software platform provides a complete timeline of customers’ transactions—claims, records, status, etc., it also enables MetLife’s agents to quickly retrieve and cross-sell solutions.
I worked as one of the senior technology leads and also managed a very talented team on the Cognizant side. I developed many back-end and UI components of the WALL. The challenging journey to achieve success in three months was an experience in itself, which I will remember for a long time.
