Product Support Specialist – SlideShare / LinkedIn

Product Support Specialist – SlideShare / LinkedIn

August 2013 to Present

My latest stint is with SlideShare / LinkedIn as a Product Support specialist. I work closely with SlideShare’s core engineering team, product and marketing managers and help shape the largest content marketing platform on the web.

SlideShare is the best platform for sharing presentations, documents, ideas and thoughts. Working at SlideShare has been an amazing experience, you get to work in a lean startup, fast paced environment, agile team. And since SlideShare is now an integral part of LinkedIn, you get to see the best of both worlds – working in a startup as well as being part of a bigger umbrella.

The team.

I co-founded Ampercent at early 2009. It’s a technology blog where I enjoy writing about computer software, How to guides, personal technology, gadgets, social media and the day to day internet culture. The goal of this site is to provide useful tips, tricks and lifehacks which makes day to day computing simpler. I started this blog when I was doing my post graduation in computer applications.

I also run a video podcast channel at YouTube. Check it out
