Kumar Shivam

Senior Software Engineer - II
A self-motivated and enthusiastic backend developer with ample experience working with REST APIs and SQL databases like MySQL. I love working on products to make the life of humans easy by creating tools to automate the business process, and learning new tech stacks to understand the advantages of its integration. I tend to think outside the box when it comes to architecting a solution and strive to get the best results with the designed solution. I come with a “welcome for change” attitude which helps me keep up with the latest technology trends and practices.
