Ratik (2019 edition)

The Hindi letter “r-uh” from my name’s spelling in Hindi.

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.

These days, I am working at Meraki, a non-profit working to solve India’s growing education crisis with the unique lens of parent empowerment.

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.

Aside from the work that I do, I also enjoy making music, reading books, listening to (and producing!) podcasts and watching football.

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.
