Naveen received his PhD in computer science from the University of Illinois. After his graduation, he spent time in the research sector of a large technology corporation, but he began to long for a more involved, hands-on position. A friend at Pure Storage referred him for an interview, and since then, Naveen has been having fun solving hard problems for the company.
Naveen arrives at the office between 8 and 10 AM, depending on what he’s got going on at the time. He catches up on any overnight happenings, then heads to the 11 AM stand-up meeting to discuss project plans and blockers with his team. The rest of the day is spent head-down at his desk, solving software problems.
