Employee Spotlight: Geethu Rajasekharan, Staff Engineer, Software Development

September 29, 2022 Xperi

Pay-TV, Web and smart TV apps team

Wellington, Tamil Nadu, India

Describe your role:
As a senior developer on my team, I am responsible for the design and development of new features in Pay-TV smart TV apps, improving and fine-tuning the existing app and of course, helping out the rest of the team including our two interns.

How long have you worked at Xperi?
I joined Xperi as part of Xperi’s acquisition of MobiTV Inc. in 2021. I have been on this team since November 2016.

What should people know about your work style?
In this era of everybody working from home, I feel that it is important that we take that extra effort in getting to know our teammates and their life outside of work. If a teammate shares an incident or a fun story about their family, it makes my day! If you ask me strictly about work, I think I might have OCD when it comes to following certain coding standards, naming conventions, etc., but I try and keep it under check while reviewing code.

Fun Facts

When you’re not at work, how do you spend your time?
I have two little angels ages one and four whom I can’t seem to get enough of! My love for reading has now reduced to “Winnie the Pooh” and bedtime stories.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself or something people would be surprised to learn about you:
As an army officer’s wife, I get a lot of opportunities to serve and make a difference in people’s lives. One of those that I’m most grateful for is the time when I was made responsible for the running of a secondary school for a brief period of time. The staff was amazing and most considerate to understand my limitation in the time I spent for the school, but I couldn’t be prouder of the drastic improvements we achieved in the school in a short span of time! I cherish the time I spent with the kids and how we learned from each other and grew together.
