Meet Quidizen Sriram Somasundaram, engineering intern on #teamengineering

Tell us a fun fact about you.

My brother and I have maintained a private version of Yelp, influenced by the Food Network. When we go to a restaurant together, each scrumptious dish is rated in creativity, presentation, and taste.

What is the coolest project you’ve worked on since joining the engineering team at Quid?

Developing a gateway to connect the current organization’s pipeline with a company that could write tech descriptions for the organizations. Working with the platform team, we (myself and my fellow interns) were able to remove a pile of tech debt and replace the current in-house tech description model with a scalable outsourced one. The project taught me several full-stack skills, from version control and virtualization to setting up web servers and using databases. I used cloud storage, as well as key-value stores and search tools, and even learned some front-end skills for a user interface that we made.

What do you like the most about being a Quidizen?

I love interacting with fellow Quidizens at the office and enjoy the casual yet productive meetings. I look forward to eating lunch with my intern friends every day. The support that we have for each other on the engineering team has really helped me develop.
