Team Stirista: Shikhar Sharma

Tell us more about your daily and overall responsibilities and what your average workday looks like.

My main tasks involve working on resolving clients’ queries and questions relating to data extraction, which come in through an in-house ticketing system. My major responsibilities include interacting with clients, understanding and meeting their data extraction related requirements.

What do you like best about working at Stirista?

The best thing about Stirista is the work environment that enables me to deliver quality work in lesser time. My colleagues are always there to extend their support to solve complex situations.

What excites you most about your job?

Client interaction is the most exciting part of my job.

Tell us about your background. What did you do before coming to Stirista?

I’m an engineering graduate in Computer Science, born and raised in the Delhi-National Capital Region of India. Before coming to Stirista, I worked as an intern with a startup firm in data visualization using business intelligence tools.

Tell us something we don’t know about you or that others might be surprised to learn about you.

Apart from my day-to-day work on deliverables, I take my learning and personal growth very seriously. I’ve attended training sessions on ASP.NET (a website development application) and have gotten my certification. Additionally, I have been very active in sports. I used to take part in football (soccer) and hockey competitions during my school and college years. 

What advice would you give to someone interested in doing what you do?

I would advise to not hesitate in asking questions, as well as being open to learning and focusing on deliverables from the client’s perspective.
