Vijay's Job

I was an Exec Vice President of Software Engineering at a company called WideOrbit in San Francisco till July 2023. WideOrbit is the leading provider of business management software for media companies. Our software is used by many, many TV stations and Radio stations all over the world. It is an exciting space and a great company. I worked for them for 12 years and in 2023 they got acquired by Lumine Group which is a subsidiary of Constellation Software. Lumine Group also went public in 2023, so it is exciting times for everyone. I am now trying to figure out what I want to do next

Before that I was the Senior Vice President of Engineering at Vendavo Corp, a company that focuses on an exciting new area called Price and Margin Management. I was at Vendavo from the start and worked there for over 10 years and helped them build their strong product and customer base. I left Vendavo in early 2011. They were subsequently acquired by a Private Equity company. They are still very much in business after all these years.

I specialize in Software Engineering management which I summarize as building and retaining high performance teams that build high quality software. Delivering high quality software on time, on budget with a robust architecture and good quality is one of the hardest challenges of this job. In addition to building Enterprise software applications, I have experience in Data Engineering, AI, Cloud tech, eCommerce tools, building complex Web Sites and in the areas of Enterprise Application Integration, Databases, and Distributed Computing. I have a Masters Degree in Computer Science from University of California, Santa Barbara and an Electrical Engineering degree from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras. I am also fortunate to have a number of US patents, in each company I worked for starting at Borland International.

I strongly believe that all companies must continue to innovate strongly despite how big they are. I am a big fan of Apple right here in Silicon Valley and in my home town of Cupertino. Google was great also - in the early days :-) And now of course you need to experience ChatGPT, which is quite amazing and which is bring Microsoft back into the lime light. I am also a big fan of Adobe and its products like Lightroom and Photoshop.

Vijay's family and interests

I have a wonderful wife, a son and a daughter. Both my children are grown up and have their own jobs. Apart from magic, I love to play tennis, read and take pictures. I love photography and think the digital SLR is one of the best modern inventions, though iPhone camera is now wonderful also. And in recent years Drone photography and videos are a lot of fun also.
