I started my career in 2014 as a production executive at Hayleys, one of the largest organizations in Sri Lanka. In the same year, I also started an external degree program BIT at UCSC. However, I was not able to complete the degree as I needed 0.2 more for the GPA. Nevertheless, I completed the final year project with a B+ and also obtained a diploma in information technology.

In 2016, while still working as an executive, I started freelancing web development projects and taught myself various programming languages. In September 2019, I switched my career to become a full-time software engineer, after being asked to join as a project lead by one of my freelancing employers. This was the turning point of my IT life. I knew that the employer trusted my capabilities, or else they wouldn't have asked me to join with them. I resigned from there after nine months and then joined a local company as a software engineer, where I worked for four months before moving on.

The following year, I worked for an international startup in the medical industry, where I handled several projects as the company grew. During this time, I also had the opportunity to interview candidates for the company and conducted a total of 187 interviews, selecting only 12 candidates.

In August 2021, I resigned from the startup as a senior software engineer and subsequently worked for several companies as a senior software engineer, specializing in Laravel, Vue, and AWS technologies. I develop projects from requirement gathering to deployment, and if you would like to learn more about my career story, please visit my LinkedIn profile.
