GK started his career in Computer Architecture, optimizing modem SoC performance at Qualcomm. This was followed by a stint at VMware optimizing data center performance using Reinforcement Learning. It was there that GK first felt the pain of DevOps; there were weeks where more time was spent orchestrating Kubernetes clusters than training the models. Alleviating this pain for other reluctant DevOps engineers like himself was a major motivation for joining CtrlStack. At CtrlStack, GK focuses on ML, specifically efforts around Natural Language driven user experiences. Outside of work, you’ll find GK nose deep in a book, playing tennis, shouting at TV as Arsenal are denied another clear penalty or enjoying a peaty single malt.
