Hello Spotify! I am Raghu.
It is so nice to meet you.

I would love to design awesome stuff at Spotify, a product that I use on a daily basis.

I scored a record breaking minus 5 out of 120 in my final mechanical engineering exam. Important life decisions were taken that day.
 

I have a bachelors in Mechanical Engineering, all that it taught me is that I wasn't carved out for it. Hence, I picked up programming and then design.

Wearing the right t-shirt is a key element of a developers life.

Interned at SlideShare LinkedIn Microsoft as a designer who could code. It seriously made their lives simpler, and me a better programmer.

This one is at opensuse summit asia on designing and developing for file sharing
(long before Dropbox became a fad.)

Snowden got me into data privacy, free software and hence I built cool stuff at Nextcloud. I also gave a dozen of talks about why it is important.

Worked as a UX Designer at Browserstack for almost an year. Front-end devs at Spotify love me already.

My lovely team at Cleartax. To the good times.

Moved to Cleartax as a unicorn. There, I designed interfaces and wrote a sh*t ton of IE 8 compatible CSS and JavaScript.

One of my republished photographs, I swear I gave my brother a hard time posing for it.

Sometimes, I take cool landscape pictures.  Some of them have around 500k hits on Unsplash.

I am still not sure I was wearing that hat. Could very well be photoshop?

I am very comfortable with Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign for design and Framer, CSS keyframes for adding animations. I don't shy away from writing quite okay ReactJS and angular for building JS apps.

Like really trying to mix with the crowd

About Today: Currently studying Interactive design at KTH, Stockholm and trying to mix with the Swedish crowd.
