Employee Spotlight: Neesh Dahiya

Meet a Staff Software Engineer on the QA Team.

By Ocient Staff

Ocient offers end-to-end solutions that enable organizations to efficiently and effectively take advantage of massive amounts of datasets. Our customers expect high-end results from our solutions offerings, and members of our Quality Assurance Team work to ensure these excellent standards are maintained. This week, we spoke with one of these QA Team members, Neesh Dahiya, about his interests both inside and outside of life at Ocient.

Neesh is a Staff Software Engineer on the QA Team that recently won a Company Values Award—”Craft-Driven”. Each year, a handful of people from Ocient are honored due to their bold display of our core values. Neesh earned this award through showing true mastery in improving the QA Team’s performance testing infrastructure. He was able to design and deploy a framework to simplify assessing performance tests and performance related issues and includes historical results. The changes that have been made allow for easy visualization of problem queries and tracking query performance trends. This has been a game changer in identifying performance degradations and in a format easily consumed by the Dev Team.

Let’s dive into Neesh’s background and learn how he fits into his role here at Ocient.

Where are you based and how do you take advantage of our remote first policy

I’m currently based out of Milwaukee, WI. I love Ocient’s remote first policy which allows me to cut down on my commute time and spend it with my family instead! Also, the flexibility to work from anywhere is a game changer!

How long have you been with Ocient? 

I’ve been at Ocient for about 10 months now.

What is one (or some) of your proudest moments while working at Ocient?

Everything from conducting database performance benchmarking experiments which mimic customer focused use-case or new features, to developing tools for testing/monitoring ‘database as a system’ is challenging, as well as rewarding, at Ocient.

What advice would you give to someone entering the tech industry?

Be eager to learn, there is no dearth of self-learning resources out there! Also, internships are a great way to explore a career path, develop/refine your skills, and network with professionals in the field.

Come Join the Team.
