Getting to Know Rajeev Gupta

Title: VP, Product Management - Application Delivery

 

Based out of: Santa Clara, CA

 

Former Job:  VP SV Strategy & Fellow

 

What do you enjoy about your work: Working with the customers and building software that solves really hard problems.

 

About your family: I am married to Parul for 13 years and have two kids – Suhani (means pleasant) who is 6 & Ronav (means grace) who just turned 3. It’s hard to say who is more crazier — and I include all 3 of them in that bucket.

 

Favorite 3 movies of all time:  Avatar, Matrix, Taken

 

Favorite book:  Service Virtualization: Reality is Overrated (of course), Innovation and Entrepreneurship by Peter Drucker.

 

Favorite hobbies: Sketching, Photography, Spend time with friends and family.

 

Interesting fact about yourself: I have to accept that I have OCD and also an incessant quest for finding answers. As an example, I don’t remember any toy that I didn’t open apart -- even opening up sophisticated watches and putting them back together. I pay very close attention to details which frustrates me because I expect the same from others. However, as my hairs are turning gray, I seem to be gaining more patience.

There is a lot going on lately in our community that I wanted to bring to your attention.
