Sr. Manager, Software Engineering

Red Hat

Public Company; 5001-10,000 employees; RHT; Computer Software industry

September 2013Present (1 year 1 month) Pune

I lead the delivery of Certification Engineering Services in Red Hat’s Customer Experience and Engagement Organization. Certification Engineering covers the complete range of products on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Platform and amplifies the value of Red Hat's subscription model. Adopting agile software development principles allow us to deliver quick iterations of high quality software models across the range of products which are aligned with partner technologies. This allows us to bring new technology services to the end-customer at a very quick pace.

In my current role I participate in initiatives for new partner ecosystem discovery, and large-scale internal process/business efficiency improvement. Thus, I am heavily involved with Technical Partner Engineering Engagements for new product streams like Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure and Red Hat Container Certification Program.

I work with a global team comprising Partner Product Marketing, Partner Engineering and Support Services inside Red Hat and our Partner ecosystem to ensure that there is a deeper technical understanding about our product lines and define a true collaborative effort.


January 2004Present (10 years 9 months) is a group of volunteers who collaborate to promote localization and internationalization with the specific aim of improving usage of Bengali in Free and Open Source Software projects. The group is involved in internationalization and localization especially translations, content development, development of tools, utilities, widgets and APIs that help facilitate a wider community of like minded collaborators to participate in a community building process.

I coordinate the developer outreach program through participation in programs like the Google Summer of Code. We try and operate on a bootstrapping model - projects selected and delivered in the previous years are often considered in the current cycle for further improvements. Our current interests lie in the fields of OCR, IVR, Information Retrieval from digitized documents.
