After earning her degree in computer science and engineering in India, Chitra looked for a position that allowed her to constantly learn and explore new technologies—and one that provided greater opportunities and flexibility. In the end, she chose ProQuest, since she knew the company is open to exploring employees’ new ideas.
Chitra typically starts her day with a stand-up or a scrum meeting to organize schedules with other teams. As a full-stack developer, Chitra’s primary goal is to understand the complete picture of the old systems—and come up with the technical design for necessary updates. While certainly challenging, her new technological infrastructure will be a big benefit for researchers.
