Utkarsh started programming at the age of 13 and was already working in the industry by the time he completed high school. He began working as a chief developer in a startup during his early years itself. Working closely with the core founding team, he got through the essentials of project management, leadership, planning and agile development. With growing interest in NLP and data science, he devised an extraction based automated summarization algorithm and was thereby an essential part in the development of an android-based news aggregation app.
Since then, he has worked as a business consultant, offering services ranging from IT infrastructure mapping to business process management, with clients spread across the globe. He excels in projects requiring extensive brainstorming. Kaushik has also been actively involved in activities related to social welfare. He has even arranged funding for the school education of more than 300 children so far, as a part of his mission. With an interest in writing fiction, he has three unpublished novels stacked up waiting to get approved by some publishing house.
Meanwhile, he works forward to make a balance between his professional and personal lives.

I had the pleasure of working very closely with Utkarsh on one of our products for development and strategy engagement. His analytical skills and ability to grasp new ideas were always far above from most of the people of his age. He is fiercely intelligent and diligent about accomplishing his goals; two things that I know are required for success. He was always able to get to the heart of the business needs and provide actionable recommendations.
Furthermore he has an ability to enjoy the trust and respect from fellow associates and even clients at times, which makes him the kind of person you would choose to consult on a multitude of subjects. He was a gem to our team and we would love to have him back onboard any day of the week. I wish him brightest of the future.
Utkarsh is one of the most gifted and brilliant programmers I know. He has a natural problem solving instinct which improves the results exponentially. One of his best trait is that he takes responsibility of the project and aims to deliver the best, which is why I reach out to him for bigger and tougher projects.
He deeply cares about his relations, be it professional or personal, and I really appreciate this about him. We have been friends and colleagues for last 5 years now and he has always come through for me. I wish him my best for future challenges and opportunities.
Utkarsh always brought his keen and diverse development skills to the table and was an excellent team player and ‘doer’ in any situation. The way he is always inclined towards taking the ownership of his projects reveals that he is not just a good engineer but also a great human being.
Among red oceans of developers who compete against each other Utkarsh differentiated himself with his vision, not just skill.
He was never satisfied with his skill set or knowledge base and kept updating himself. He proved himself in testing situations. He single handedly produced an end-to-end product and managed several other projects simultaneously, each of which had deadlines. This is just an example of his commitment to work.
It was always fun working with Utkarsh. His sense of problem solving and experimentation helped the team solve some of the critical problems at time. In spite of his short stay at Innovaccer, his active participation in multiple projects along with his diverse fields of interest made him a valuable asset. I wish him good luck for his future endeavors and undertakings.
