My name is Kanwaljeet Singla. I am Co-founder of a tech startup called Kenyt. Before Kenyt, I worked for Microsoft for 13+ years and Cisco for 1 year. My last title in Microsoft was Principal Group Engineering Manager.
I started my career at Cisco Systems in Bangalore where I worked on Cisco Emergency Responder and Cisco Call Manager. After working just for a year, I moved to Microsoft India in Hyderabad where I worked on VJ# .Net class library and compiler. After 2.5 years in J# team, I moved to IIS team in Microsoft US where I worked on variety of core IIS features like compression, custom errors, caching, web deploy, security modules, configuration system, fastcgi, wincache, APC, PHP installers etc. In 2010 I moved back to Microsoft India in Hyderabad and started working on Bing weather, health and sports verticals. A year later I moved to AppEx team where I headed the dev team which built Bing sports apps for windows tablet, windows phone, Android, iOS and web (msn.com). After couple of years on Sports, I took over MSN Finance and Health & Fitness verticals too and shipped multiple releases of web app and iOS/windows/android apps for all 3 verticals. I was heading a team of 80 software engineers.
