Suraj joined PayPal as an intern over three years ago, and today has grown to be a Software Engineer for the Global Data Sciences ART team. He works towards building tools and frameworks in the Data Science space and deploying real-time/batch pipelines and models while collaborating with stakeholders from the Platform & Analytics teams.
Suraj is very passionate about the culture at PayPal whether it is the Community Impact team or Unity, our employee resource group, which have given him opportunities to volunteer and give back to society.
If not for engineering Suraj would have pursued a career in music and chess. He enjoys life as an engineer as it gives him the opportunity to take his theory and experience to build innovative designs and tangible products which in turn result in making a real business impact. Suraj also reminisces that his most enjoyable projects have always been the most challenging ones.
In his own words, “The opportunity to constantly dabble in new technologies, brainstorm & collaborate with multiple teams and the positive feeling that one receives while being a part of the solution are some of the perks that I enjoy as a developer, and they have always excited me”.
* In the spirit of Engineer’s Day, the #EngineersOfPayPal series is aimed to spotlight all the remarkable work they have done across the Tech Centers in Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad for PayPal, globally.
