    Puneet Khushwani
    Engineering Manager, Coupa

    Since graduating from Birla Institute of Technology and Science in Pilani, India in 2013, the ethos of my career has always been "Never Stop Building".

    The six years I spent with my first employer was a crazy rollercoaster ride, building several products all in different domains:  consumer e-commerce, private label furniture, social media application, and a SAAS product to help companies run crypto-backed token economies.

    In early 2020, I joined Coupa, a leader in the Business Spend Management community, and over the last two years with them as they’ve grown from under 1000 to nearly 3500 employees overall, I have transitioned from an individual contributor role to an Engineering Manager role.
