I have been in the field of ML for over 4 years now. I started as most ML engineers do, in a research gig working on several hefty problems of Computer Vision and NLP.
After that, I shifted to a more leadership role where I stepped up to lead the ML department from conception of the idea to production deployment and client engagement basically ML to MLOps.
In these 4 years, I can safely say I have become more than able in developing and deploying ML products, keeping in mind the business intricacies and client needs and wants.

CONFESSIONAL: I contracted a severe case of Omicron in August 2022 and had to be hospitalized. The unfortunate circumstance of my hospitalization was that I was unable to complete projects for 4 of my clients and wasn't able to contact them of the same. I have already apologized to all of them. I guarantee that i won't put you in the same boat and will carry out our contract to its completion and your satisfaction.
