  • Designed and built a multi-tenant policy administration system with B2B insurance sales, which allowed onboarding of e-commerce platforms like PayTM, MobiKwik, Flipkart etc.
  • Built various patterns around the business process engine (Camunda) for asynchronous execution which became a Solution Building Block.
  • Contributed across platoform, core services and experience layer of the architecture and solution.
  • Initiated and facilitated Architecture and Design Review Board.
