POSITION:

software intern

Dear Recruiting Manager,

I am a diligent, self-motivated and analytical computer science graduate student at Arizona State University.I am writing to express my interest in the Software Engineer(intern) position at Pinterest. I learnt about this opportunity through LinkedIn Jobs section. Pinterest is a unique social networking platform that promotes creativity and ideas and connects people with common interests, and this is what excites me about working at Pinterest where creativity is valued. I have worked on a variety of projects in various domains such as cloud, collaboration, mobility etc and have been recognized on several occasions for coming up with creative solutions during my career.

I believe its an art to develop a good software and one needs to be smart as well as creative to be a good software developer, a combination of these two qualities makes me a perfect fit for this position. Until recently, I was working as a senior software engineer at Persistent Systems limited,India. In this role I focused on development of web applications using latest and cutting edge technologies such as Java, PHP, javascript, HTML 5, AJAX and worked on various frameworks.I gained comprehensive practical knowledge of distributed and cloud architecture, software development processes including agile, incremental builds and deployment automation. During this time, I developed a strong passion for distributed computing while working on IBM cloud projects where I got opportunity to develop front-end system and REST API services for cloud system.

Currently , I am working as a Graduate Research assistant on developing an intelligent tutoring system that helps students develop and learn complex models in an intuitive way. Through this research opportunity I intend to learn about intelligent systems with learning capabilities through user behavior and feedback. As a software developer my role is to build features using javascript , PHP and MYSQL that allows users to construct complex models, plot the solutions and create an interactive system.

As an avid software developer, I have taken up many hobby projects as well. I love developing Mobile applications for Android and currently working on a open source music streaming app that will allow local bands and musicians showcase and promote their music for free and music lovers can get to enjoy regional music based on location based recommendation system.Also developed a twitter client that can sort and filer your tweets that removes the clutter on your timeline and presents only most important tweets for you.I am constantly on a lookout for opportunities where I can upgrade my skills and learn new technologies.

Thanks,
