About me

Hi. I’m Prasanna Natarajan.

I’m a software engineer with over 8 years of Ruby on Rails experience.

Currently I work for a US-based security company. I’m responsible for a few entities there (services and people). As of 2020, I have over 11 years of industry experience (7+ in ruby/rails).

Here’s my resume and linkedin profile.

Some kind folks have said some nice things about my work in past (from linkedin Recommendations):

Prasanna is a passionate and dedicated software professional who does not shy away from taking up challenges that pitch him outside his comfort zone. He is an excellent Ruby-on-Rails architect and has the capabilities to motivate and take a team along with him. When I work with experienced programmers, I look for traits like “can-do attitude”, “attention to detail” and “a will to learn new concepts without fear of failure and its consequences” in them and I was pleasantly surprised to see Prasanna possess all of these. I was also floored with his willingness to take the risk of attempting a completely new area (for him) like AWS at that time and mastering concepts related to what was needed almost single-handedly purely driven by the will to know more about the new concepts and succeed in implementing the required asks. Prasanna is ideally suited for free-lance work on pretty much any domain and technology under the sun although he is an expert and leans towards his in-depth knowledge and experience with RoR and AWS. In summary, Prasanna is a thorough professional who does not shy away from pushing the limits and challenging himself to conquer new challenges and I hope and wish he does not change his work ethics and the positive “can-do” attitude with time. Wishing him all the very best in all his future endeavours, I strongly recommend Prasanna for all the potential he holds and has showcased while working with architecting and implementing a very challenging solution. - Sourangshu

Me and Prasanna worked on the same project. Prasanna is a very detail oriented person with thorough technical knowledge. His attention to minute details were amazing which was very essential for the product and business. The project we worked came with lots of frequent changes, even thought the time to turn around was very little, they way prasanna responded and delivered to the situation was really outstanding.In process of the development prasanna has to work on new areas with very little time to ramp up. He stood dedicated and committed and ramped up amazingly fast. He is a go to person and very amicable which is very essential for a team work. I wish to work with him in the future and wish him all the best for his future. - Karthikeyan

Fast learner, strong technical skills and good abilities to work independently and get things done. I was most impressed with Prasanna’s abilities to take on a new coding approach with React+Rails and get that done well. - Joseph
