Kuldeep Singh oversees software R&D for our analytics team in the Enterprise Imaging group based in Foster City, CA. He has been with Philips for over 11 years in both India and the US helping design and implement software solutions for Philips.
What is your role at Philips?
I am the lead software engineer of the team here in Foster City. I oversee our high-level design and guide team members on implementation. I do a fair amount of coaching on various frameworks, languages, and help troubleshoot problems whenever possible.
Why did you ultimately decide to join Philips?
Philips was actually my first company right out of college. It was incredibly exciting to graduate and join a big, reputable company that I’d already heard so much about, even though most people don’t realize we’re a worldwide leader in healthtech. But what really pulled me here is that we are creating software solutions and technology that actually help people. We don’t just create technology, but the work we do is helping solve real world health problems. Not a lot of Software Engineers can say that.
What is the office environment like?
It’s very open, friendly, and comfortable. It’s very results-oriented, but we are given a lot of freedom to work how we want. Everyone is very respectful when it comes to holding each other accountable for deliverables. And we also know how to decompress. For example, in the evenings we unwind by playing table tennis or foosball. It’s all in good fun. Plus the views from our office are incredible as we overlook the bay.
