Kavita Chaudhry
Senior Software Engineer

From the people I work with to the tech and code I develop, I love being an Engineer at Intersection. I love the team I work with - every single one of us brings something unique to the table. I love the diversity of projects I work on - I am not confined to just one language or one side of the tech stack. On Monday, I could be working in Python or Go or Scala, but on Friday I might be working in Javascript. I also love the amount of input we, Engineers, have on the projects we work on -  we can pitch an idea and there's a solid chance that we can make that project or idea a reality. All of these things - combined with our do good mission - make Intersection an amazing and exciting place to work!
