I worked with Hewlett Packard Enterprise for 2 years as software engineer for our client SHAW Communications where we were looking after provisioning, network orchestration, mediation and authentication. We were handling more than 10 applications and after that I joined Exusia Inc as a Senior analyst where I started lookig after PAN India DTH billing and Mobile number portibility applications for Airtel telecommunications. Our applications are based on ETL tools which work on Ab initio.
