“I have over 20 years of experience in the software industry. I started as an Applications Engineer for a Computer Aided Design (CAD) / Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) / Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software company called Autodesk in 1995, then moved on to work for Hewlett Packard (H-P) also as an Applications Engineer / Deployment Manager for an online collaboration application for Engineers. I also worked for Pitney Bowes as a Sr. Support Engineer and with Dassault Systems as a Sr. Product Support Manager. I worked as a Program Manager for Tech Mahindra, an India base consulting company, and as a Project Manager for FedEx.
I have about 7 years of experience as a Program and Project manager. As a Program Manager at Tech Mahindra, I managed a multi-year, multi-million dollars program that included the development, configuration, and support of a PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) environment with about 12 different downstream applications. I had about 55 developers offshore and 5 developers/team leads were onsite. Each quarter the team delivered 12 different releases, one for each application using a combination of Waterfall and Agile with Scrum methodologies. As a Project manager for FedEx, I managed several projects for software development, production support and systematic reports for the Target.com E-Commerce Program.
