Bondora Superhero #33 — Bhrikuty Aggarwal

👧Bondorian since April 2022

👨‍💻Role: Platform Team Lead

🛠️Team: Engineering Operations

Bhrikuty’s journey at Bondora:

I began my journey at Bondora in April 2022. Not only was I new in Bondora, but I also started a new life in a new country. I joined as a Cloud engineer and learned about many excellent tools and techniques we use here. After a few months, looking at the consistency and the process-oriented mindset, I was fortunate enough to be promoted to Technical Lead of the Platform Team. I’ve really enjoyed working here and am looking forward to more challenges and opportunities. I believe that Bondora has a prosperous future.

Bhrikuty’s typical workday

Well, before I joined, most of my team worked from home. As I would like to meet all of them at least once a week, we encouraged everyone to come to the office on Mondays so we can start the week with some level of personal connection.

I usually have a hybrid work schedule, where I pick alternate days to work from the office. I start my day with a cup of tea (of course, that’s a given as I’m Indian); otherwise, I won’t be very productive 😀

Next, I check my tasks or any pings from anyone. Then it’s daily standups, meetings, etc.

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

I love to track what I do in a day. I think it’s so satisfying for every engineer or developer to complete their assigned tasks promptly. This way, I feel like I’ve learned something new while working on my task. Another thing that I feel is rewarding is when I help remove blockers for people or can provide support to anyone.

And what makes being a developer at Bondora awesome?

For an engineer (or any person for that matter), the most important thing is to feel sane so that they can make logical decisions. And trying out new tools, new processes, and better solutions is part of everyday work. I feel Bondora’s values and way of working help to maintain that calmness in your life🧘‍♂️

How did you find your way into the world of programming? What has the experience been like so far?

During my college years, I developed an interest in building websites using scripting languages like PHP, JavaScript, HTML, etc. Later on, I took an extra course about Cloud Computing where I learned about servers, storage, databases, networking – everything on Cloud and from there, I acquired an interest in working on public clouds, automation scripts, and many more tools ☁️💻

Best meme that sums up being a developer?

‘I can’t start programming before I …’ 

… have a clear understanding of the problem to be solved and have a cup of tea ☕

What programming language is your favorite and why?

As a cloud engineer, my interest is mostly around scripting and automation-friendly programming languages, thus primarily using Python 🐍 as my go-to language and other scripting languages too.

What is your best investment advice?

Well, I am no expert here, but I would say – do not follow what everyone else is doing when it comes to investing your hard-earned money and time. When investing, each individual has different priorities and standard of living. Try to invest for the long-term 🙂

Best cybersecurity/IT tip?

Do not use the same passwords on different websites or applications. And be cautious about sharing personal information online.

And now, let’s get to know Bhrikuty even better!

What are some of your hobbies? What do you like to do in your free time?

I really love to dance. I like making everyday tasks more enjoyable by turning on music and dancing while I cook and clean. Also, I absolutely love to play Xbox games along with my husband. In fact, do let me know if anyone knows good local co-op games. I also enjoy watching thrillers and murder mystery movies🎞️ Back in India, when I had free time, I used to play with my dog. I love dogs ❤️

What are your favorite games to play?

Oh, I love to play action-adventure games on the Xbox console. Particularly games where I have been assigned some mission or task and I need to complete it to open other levels like It Takes Two, A Plague Tale: Innocence, GTA, Unravel, etc. I often enjoy car racing games like Dirt 5, Forza Horizon, and NFS.

Which game have you clocked the most hours with on Steam?

Not particularly on Steam, but the game I’ve played most hours is GTA: Vice City 🏎️

Bacon: yay or nay? 

I am a vegetarian 🙂

What’s your favorite TV show/podcast?

My all-time favorites are F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and Young Sheldon.

What’s your favorite kind of music (to listen to while programming)?

Mostly Bollywood and Punjabi (mostly melody) 🎶

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have a dog named Coco. He lives with my parents in India. Very gullible but an extraordinarily naughty and spoiled brat, I would say 🐶

What superpower would you like to have and why?

Oh, this is interesting. I would like to have 2 superpowers – one is invisibility, and the other is to foresee the future🔮Both of these came to my mind from the shows I used to watch in my teens – which are Harry Potter with his cloak of invisibility and another is an American sitcom called That’s so Raven where the girl has the power to foresee glimpses of the future. These powers seem super crazy, and I would love to have them 🙂

What’s something that you want to do but scares you?

One of the activities is underwater diving 🤿 I know very basic swimming but deep waters scare me, so I would like to try that someday.

And with this, we have come to the end of this blog post. We are excited to have had the chance to introduce our lovely Bhrikuty to our readers. She is truly an asset to our team of Superheroes🦸‍♂️
