About Vijayakumar R Tawker's family

My father is a retired Bank Manager. I have one brother and one sister. My brother is a Doctor - Cardiac Anaesthetist and my sister is a lecturer in a Nursing college.
Most Important Lessons
Success comes through hard work, patience and perseverance. Looking at the big picture in one's career is more important than focusing on short term hiccups.
Points of inflection
i) Doing an M.E on-campus in BITS, Pilani, Rajasthan ii) International exposure while working in Qualcomm, San Diego, USA for 6yrs and 3months. iii) Having had to look for a job in the 2009 economic slowdown (with 13.5yrs of experience) since the startup I was working for ran out of projects.
The Journey So Far
I started my career in Sundram Telematics Ltd. After that I worked in Qualcomm, Inc. for 6yrs 3mnths in San Diego, CA. After that I returned to India and worked for Motorola India, Freescale India, Nimble Wireless (start-up), Kyocera/Mindtree Wireless, Airvana India and currently in Smartplay Techs.
Degrees that Matter
I have been working in Wireless Cellular Software Design, Development and Integration and not in QA/Testing domain.
Plans for the Future
I see myself as a Software Engineering Director or Senior Director couple of years from now.
A Fine Balance:
I try to complete all my work while in the office itself. Except taking conference calls from home, I try not to take much work home.
Currently working at
Responsible for Project and Delivery management of the largest Turnkey project in the Wireless Services Division of Smartplay Technologies.
Role Model
Mahatma Gandhi. Proved that if there is a will, impossible things can be achieved.
