I have known Jeyaraj for quite some time now. I first got introduced to him as our Technical Account Manager for AWS Services when I was at Grab All our Grab services were running on AWS and we were expecting tremendous growth. During this period, we encountered multiple technical challenges, expanded to using multiple AWS services and scaled multiple fold. Jeyaraj had been our single point of contact for AWS during period and has helped with resolving all our issues, questions. He helped our team learn by connecting with various subject matter experts around the world. One of key leadership principle at Amazon is Customer Obsession and Jeyaraj is a role model for this Amazon leadership principle. Later as an advisor when I was working on a big data lake project for a client, I again sought the help of Jeyaraj who was then working as a Big Data Specialist at AWS. We were facing some specific technical challenges in the implementation of this data lake. Jeyaraj tapped his network across AWS to find solutions for the problems we were facing. He is a great partner to work with. He brings a wealth of experience in cloud technologies (especially AWS) and Big Data. He has technical expertise to quickly understand the customers problems and knows how to get it resolved quickly. What I found specifically impressive about him is his ability to hustle and find solution even if it means waking up some engineering at USA in the middle of night to get problem resolved for the customer. It is great working with him.
Jeyaraj has been a key asset for Grab when it comes to Grab's relationship with AWS.He's tireless advocate for his customers and also a very hard worker. Jeya has always been there for us if there were any issues so that we can get the help we need to resolve our issues as soon as possible. I can honestly say that without Jeya's commitment to supporting us, we would not have been able to achieve the scale or level of success that we've had with AWS in the past year or so.
Hardworking, intelligent and helpful, he has come a long way and is sure to achieve greater heights. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with Jeyaraj will truly appreciate all he is able to do to help them both succeed. A driven, ambitious individual with an infectious enthusiasm for any project. His depth and understanding of data analytics systems and ability to dive deep to reach the root of the problem is amazing. Anyone who works with him can attest to his efficient and effective communication, creative thinking, professional business acumen and ethical conduct. I highly recommend working and connecting with Jeyaraj.
Jeyaraj is a seasoned technologist who is very customer focused. He has always been the goto person for me to help with any support with Big Data Services on AWS. He is a fast learner and can adapt to changing technology landscape very quickly. Jeyaraj is very proactive and believes in leading by doing and would be a great asset to any team.
Jeyeraj and I have worked with a few flagship AWS customers in ASEAN. Jeyeraj is an outstandingly passionate colleague to work with, and anyone can turn to him for expert knowledge and advice. Jeyeraj can be relied on to articulate complex Root Cause Analysis, and he has always been the go-to person when anyone encounters a complex technical issue requiring in-depth analysis. When I work with Jeyeraj, I can see that he has always done his best in helping AWS customers, and he has played a catalyst role in resolving each and every technical architecture and scale issue we have experienced thus far. I will be very happy to provide a personal reference if anyone wishes to know more.
Jeyaraj was the lead TAM on multiple Fortune 500 Global Accounts.Put simply, he is a weapon.Extremely deep and wide knowledge of technology. Incredible initiative. Produces mountains of architectures, project plans, white papers, training documents. Manages new client deployments and incidents, with incredible attention to detail, but at the same time communicates in a very business focussed manner. Leads the team by setting the highest benchmark possible, reminding them what great looks like. Yet shows humility. Very well liked by everyone. A great leader going on to even bigger things no doubt. Clients love him, telling them not to poach him and then extracting him is the biggest challenge for us!
Jeyaraj is a highly-motivated and successful engineer and architect. Jeyaraj combines strong technical skills with a never-ending thirst to learn more. In addition, he is able to communicate technical concepts in a straight-forward logical way to technical and non-technical audiences alike. Jeyaraj was a pleasure to work with and I'd welcome the chance to work with him again in the future.
Jeyaraj is on of the finest technical resources i have worked with . His knowledge and depth of understanding of the various aspects of IT Infrastructure is excellent.

Being AWS customers, we constantly work with Jeyraj and team. I've found Jeyaraj extremely knowledgeable about AWS services as well as other prevalent concepts & systems. His background in infrastructure & networking is a strong foundation and he is able to support us extremely well with appropriate & multiple solutions for our issues/queries. It is good to work with you Jeyaraj - keep it up. :) Thanks, as always.
I have known Jeyaraj for 9 years and have enjoyed working professionally with him on major projects for 31/2 years. His successful experience spans from DC relocation which includes entire set up of systems and storage, setting up remote Disaster Recovery DC and ensuring successful remote synchronization between Production DC and the DR. Jeyaraj excels in his technical knowledge and is exceedingly competent in addressing difficult technical problems. His continuing self improvement in employing concepts from ITIL and BCP to his work, allows Jeyaraj to manage projects effectively and efficiently.Jeyaraj is able to combine his technical competence with his strong understanding of business process to effectively execute and deliver consistent and excellent results. I am confident in recommending Jeyaraj in undertaking any major international project.
I believe in lean, agile and phased approach to transform from conventional (both data analytics, infrastructure) operations to a cognitive culture, in my opinion it is more of mindset and not a skillset. I am big proponent of Framework Driven Build & Delivery Excellence and have written 3 extensive frameworks to build Data Aanalytics Solutions and for Cloud transformation initiatives in Amazon and HCL. Cloud allows us to design, code, build, deploy and run infrastructure and applications using programmable API's. To make it simple, everything is an API in cloud, so in order to build scalable and reliable applications it is imperative we understand and make use of them. By using strategic frameworks we can convert the solutions we build in to a successful business.
