In this week’s edition of ‘Meet The Team’ we speak to the Findora Foundation’s Lead Engineer of the English-speaking teams, Tanmay Bhattacharya. This is the second episode of the series and in each issue, we speak to a different member of the team about their experiences in, and perspectives on, Findora and the blockchain industry. The previous issue featured Matt Arney (Head of Growth. Findora Foundation).
Tanmay Bhattacharya brings over eight years of experience in the technology sector to his role at Findora Foundation, Tanmay is a security and interoperability specialist who joined the Foundation earlier this year.
Before joining the Findora Foundation, Tanmey worked as a Senior Software Developer at B2B blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) provider OneLedger .Like the Findora Foundation, OneLedger also offers products and services that are built from the ground up to be “truly interoperable” and “uses its own blockchain technology to support its customers’ blockchain needs” however, unlike Findora, it has less of a focus towards DeFi and privacy features.
He has already made an immediate impact on the Findora project and to the whole team at the Foundation, which is why all of us here look forward to many more years of success with his support and expertise.
