Born into a family of doctors, Usman was midway through medical school when he became fascinated with the world wide web. He left school, moved to the Silicon Valley, and began work as a software engineer. Eventually, he and a friend began a startup of their own—quickly acquired by Veeva.
Usman arrives in the office between 8 and 10 AM, thanks to Veeva’s flexible work hour options. He spends most of the morning in deep design discussions with his in-office teammates before conferencing with colleagues across the country. After lunch, he’s head-down and headphones-on, busy coding the next big Veeva release.
