About

Hey there! My name is Raja and I'm a software developer. I am a fourth year student at the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University in a double degree program. I enjoy going to hackathons and I occasionally write - click below to go to my blog or my Medium page.

Work Experience

I've gotten to work at a couple of cool places over the years, check them out!

Product Manager Intern at Vidyard

Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
Vidyard is the video layer of the internet. As a Product Manager Intern, I worked with engineers on different projects (the biggest one being a remodel of our system notification architecture which reduced the time required to send a system notification by over 50%), analyzed a lot of data and prepared reports with HEAP and Periscope and wrote product briefs.
The tools I used include Sequel Pro, Periscope Data, Heap Analytics and Jira

Software Engineering Intern at ATRIO

Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, USA
Atrio is a Microsoft Gold partner that specializes in offering custom CRM solutions and consulting. I got the opportunity to work with clients in developing custom CRM software, create an official Atrio product that is being sold to clients, and even got to create a couple of product demos.
The tools I used include C#, JavaScript, Scribe, SQL and PowerBI.

Technical Analyst at RBC

Toronto, Ontario, Canada
RBC is Canada's largest bank (by annual revenue) and I worked in the Risk Management division. I was working on a stress testing tool that calcuated potential losses for RBC if a financial crisis was to occur (ex. recession).
The tools I used include VBA, Excel and SQL.
