What do my coworkers have to say?

Chris Paskvan

I had the opportunity to manage Prashanth on a couple of different teams. He is the kind of developer I always seek out. He enjoys learning new technology, delivers consistently, and demonstrates the level of commitment above what is expected. In addition, his ability to collaborate with others makes him someone I trust to get the job done.

Sri Konduru

Prashanth is an experienced and reliable front-end software engineer who keeps himself up to date on the latest technologies and good practices in front-end software practices. He has an outstanding work ethic and is open, quick learner, and very professional. While always being positive and helpful, he never hesitates to provide support when apparent.

It's a pleasure and an honor to recommend Prashanth to anyone who wants to hire him as a Software Engineer.

Ken Perera

Prashanth is a capable, friendly and professional individual who was an asset as a member of the Fleet team, and a pleasure to work with. As a Senior Developer on a key customer-facing product, he helped our team bring to market a number of essential features that directly supported our customers and their operations.

Aziz Ali

There are two things I look for in people I am working with: (1) Constructive & progressive attitude (2) Relevant technical skills. And I must say that Prashanth excels in both categories.

Prashanth joined my team at Uptake and early on I noticed that he was friendly, approachable and genuine. That is great but with that he had a keen interest in making the project good. (Technically and from a user experience stand point as well.)

Prashanth would proactively make suggestions for improvement in our project and would even volunteer to take up the implementation of those tasks.

When Prashanth started on our project, he didn't have experience on our technology stack. I'll be honest, I was surprised how fast he got up to speed with our tech-stack without much input from me. This shows that he is a self-starter and quick learner.

Besides being a great co-worker, and a great employee to have (for companies), Prashanth has a rear knack for entrepreneurship. I believe this enterprising attitude makes him a great employee as well - Since he is not just taking instructions, he is solving problems.

I wish you well my man @prashanth

Sunil Kavali

I had worked with Prashanth Naika for close to 3 years. In this time he was an integral part of all the teams that he had worked for. He was fun to be around with and has an equally exceptional passion for coding. He will be an indispensable resource for any company.

Yashraj Jayaraj

I got to learn a lot from Prashanth when I had the pleasure of working with him at Egen Inc. IMHO he is one of those developers who's in love with the project and technologies used therein. I look forward to working with him in the future.

Tintu Pathrose

Prasanth and I worked together on a recent project. Prasanth is a detail oriented, innovative and careful perfectionist . He has an extensive knowledge and strong experience in UI and that immensely helped our deadline. He always tried to see the big picture which helped us plan better . I would definitely opt to work with him again .

Vincent Porcelli

I worked with Prashanth as a Technical lead on an Angular project. I enjoyed working with him. He dug in and got the job done. He would not hesitate to ask questions or offer ideas. I always knew that I did not have to worry about any assignment that he had, it would be done correctly. In the midst of the craziness of delivering a large project in a new technology, he never wavered and always had a great can do attitude. I would without hesitation love to work with him again. That is the best recommendation that anyone can give.
