Its is rare to find a team member who is so self motivated, ready to work on any technology, a never say NO attitude. Jitendra is one of them. It was always pleasure working with Jitendra. My first assignment with him was on the Salesforce.com where we both were new and inspite of that the outcome was beyond expectation. Also, one of the rarest quality of jitendra is to seek constant feedback for the improvement .. not only for himself but also for the team.. If things are not going as planned then he never hesitated to bring rather than leaving it to managers. Keeping everything documented, giving presentation to team are some of the good qualities he has exhibited while working with me. I always enjoyed working with him and in future i will always love him to be part of my team.Umeshwar Thakur (Director, Product Development at Globallogic)
Jitendra joined in the BPA team as a software engineer while I was working on Employee Induction process automation project. Right from the first day, Jitendra impressed not only me but the entire team with his dedication, Java skills and technical knowledge. Post that, Jitendra has always impressed everyone with his work - delivering before time, finding solutions to known problems and so on. In a very short period of time, Jitendra has become a go-to person for any technical matters in the BPA team and is an indispensable resource. It's been my pleasure to work with this star. I highly recommend Jitendra as an extremely dedicated, hard working and technically competent engineer who is really adept at any technical problem - big or small. In any new project, if I had a choice, he would be the first resource on board in my team. Wish you all the best Jitendra and keep your thirst for knowledge and learning always this ways!Siddharth Jain (Program Manager-Business Transformation at AMD)
I recognized Jitendra through his efforts of sharing knowledge across community with the blogging medium. His blog manifest his journey and is self explanatory in nature, clearly demonstrating his growth from software developer to a dedicated sales engineer/consultant role. Jitendra is fairly active towards advocating force.com platform and offer learned approach through his writing medium which is rare. Browsing through articles he have written, have had helped me in person, carving out solutions in my career. Jitendra is self-driven and guiding in nature of his work and inspire other developers, to go over the edge and share knowledge across the board.As a judging member of the MVP program at Salesforce, I went through his efforts and carefully watched his involvement in developer community, platform advocacy and self growth. Evident of fact, he was entitled as Force.com MVP, and he represents title strongly till date. In person, I find him business easy and clearly his qualities makes him an asset for future saleforce endeavors .Harshit Pandey (Salesforce® Technical Architect at Salesforce.com)
