Microsoft Internship: Payments Experience

Product Management, Back-end Development

In June of 2017, I joined Microsoft's Payments Experience team in their Redmond office as an Explore intern, rotating from Product Management to Software Engineering over the span of 12 weeks. I worked with my amazing pod-mates, manager Venkata, and mentor Selvan to tackle the issue of non-centralized Payment metadata information leading to inefficiency in on-boarding potential Payment Service Providers.

During the span of my internship, I helped to strategize a plan to automatize management of Payment Instrument metadata by identifying main stakeholders, their individual stakes in the problem space, and design the architectural plan for an RESTful API service that help Microsoft connect to Payment Service Providers securely and efficiently, while also helping multiple internal teams to access information hassle-free.
