My name is Ratik and I am Software Developer working at the intersection of design, technology and social impact.
I've been a creative individual interested in technology for as far as I can remember. In fact, the reason I taught myself how to write code was to build out ideas that came to me.
Through my work at Meraki and my growing interest in using technology for good, I have transitioned from someone who dreamed of working at one of the Big 4 tech companies to someone who now wants to do more thoughtful, meaningful and impactful work.
And that is Ratik in 2019.
This blurb was originally written for my personal website's about page. It had been a while since I refreshed my “brand” on the internet — so long that I had stopped identifying with my (then) online persona. This is when I wrote this blurb to try and summarize Ratik in 2019.
