sairam's work experience at Flipkart.com (2013-2015)

Logistics Team (Dec 2013 - Nov 2015)

TL;DR: Working in the Logistics team as part of a growing team at Flipkart, it was a unique experience to see a 15 member team grow into an organisation supporting lakhs of customers

I have contributed to the architecture

I worked in Logistics/LastMile team. Our team was responsible for building applications for Field Executives inside the hubs and outside delivering items to customers. Our team was the last Customer touch point during the life cycle of an order. We were the one of the guardians for Customer eXperience.
