Junior Developer Finds His True Self At kalmstrom.com

Today I am happy to introduce a new employee at the Indore office. Bhupendra Singh joined the kalmstrom.com team as a trainee three months ago, and now we have hired him as a Junior Developer.

The right trainees will advance
The people who work with the kalmstrom.com Solutions must not only be technically advanced. They must also have a capacity to think out of the box and be imaginative problem solvers. Such persons are not so easy to find, but taking in trainees is a good way of looking for them.

Some of our current team members began their career at kalmstrom.com as trainees, and after a few years they are now skilled technicians with a deep understanding of our products and the platforms they build on. I am sure Bhupendra will be another one of them.

Bhupendra's story
Bhupendra Singh imageI was born and brought up in Indore, India, and I graduated from the Indore Institute of Science and Technology in 2013.

Like every college graduate I asked myself what to do next. Should I go for further studies? Should start earning my bread and butter?

Contractor training
At that time I was selected for training in a young engineer contractor scheme, launched by the Chief Minister of our state, Madhya Pradesh.

The course gave me a license that is required to sign contracts for governments road and building works, so I registered a company and begun working in that business together with a cousin.

However, the question was still bothering me. Was this the work I wanted to do for the rest of my life? The technology, programs, and logics running in my blood cells was saying a big NO.

I left the management of my company to my father and my cousin and begun looking for another career.

Explore the real me
Fortunately, in March 2015, I got the opportunity to work with the kalmstrom.com team. Here I was offered an opportunity to explore the real me – or at least the engineer in me.

Music frees the mind
In my free time I like to listen to music, because music is something which always keeps your mind fresh. I also like to visit and explore new places.

Family of IT Professionals
I am blessed with a wonderful family of six members. My mother is a home maker, and my father is a retired bank employee. He is engaged in trade-union matters and is currently the Vice President of All India Bank Employees Association and the General Secretary of Bank of India Employees Union.

My elder brother, who is a Senior Software Engineer and lives in Japan, will soon marry. His fiancé is a Senior Technical Writer and works for a Swedish company (Ericsson) just like I do. My sister lives in Mumbai. She is an  IT analyst, so we are all in the IT business.

Questions answered!
At the kalmstrom.com, Indore office, I have found the answer to my questions about the future. Now I feel very satisfied with my work, because it gives me a chance to continue learning things I am interested in, at the same time as I have begun earning "my bread and butter"!
