Brian Small Krishantha is a genuine person who is passionate about doing things the right way. For the 18 months we worked together, this manifested itself across all of his work - the development he did, and his interactions with business partners. Krish was the consummate team member on our scrum team. He was a teacher and mentor to less experienced developers on our team, not only educating them about the technology he was hired to consult on, but on overall development skills and best practice. He pushed the team to see the big picture and to do the work completely (not just what was obvious or easy). Krish's own work was outstanding. As a developer, he was dependable both for quality and getting things done on time. He always seemed to have an idea for how to solve a problem. He made it seem effortless, but it wasn't that he knew everything (although he knows *a lot*), but it was that he was able to find answers to the problems he was trying to solve - either by researching and learning online, or connecting with other developers who might have insight into solving the problem. His efficiency in working through these types of challenges is one of the keys to his success. As a consultant, Krishantha was fully committed to our company and always acted in its best interest as if he were part of the company himself. Too frequently, this manifested itself as long hours which Krish felt was his professional obligation to his client and which he willingly undertook. He always seemed to be thinking ahead of the rest of the team, looking for opportunities to improve the design, quality or performance of our apis.Working with Krishantha was one of the best professional experiences of my life and I'm very thankful for the opportunity to have worked with him, as well as for everything he contributed to the success of our team and our company.

Christian Curry I had the pleasure to work with Krish for approximately 18 months during his time at Fidelity investments. I like to point out that he always took the utmost pride in not only the work he did personally, but the work that the team delivered as a whole. His focus was delivering functionality in a timely manner that was of the highest quality. Given his expertise and background, from a technical standpoint he really took on the role of architect, too. If we did venture into an area that he didn't know well, he took it upon himself to research and learn it. Not only that, but he was an instructor. He would train and onboard new team members helping to ensure they were cross-functional. Krish took it upon himself to rewrite one of our most critical APIs after there were performance issues uncovered. This was done in time to be installed prior to this past election in order to ensure stability in what was projected to be chaotic time. Not only did he complete the development, but he helped with functional and performance testing. These performance metrics allowed us to convince upper management that installing the API was the right choice even though it was only a couple weeks before the election. Krish is a great team member, teacher and a catalyst for driving improvements. I can only hope that I get another opportunity to work with him in the near future.

Jackie Shi Krish was a super star and an exceptional tech lead on the “super journey” team. He was one of those rear breed of “full-stack” engineers. Fewer engineers possess his deep knowledge and commitment to take a product from inception, architecting, coding, QA automation, to ultimately production grade software. He was also keen to look for ways to improve efficiency, rather than blindly following status quo. For example, he created a new automated process to run capacity and longevity test, he also automated a thorough validation process for production releases. Krish’s contribution also expands in helping the entire team grow. He is a selfless person who provided tireless training and mentoring to junior and senior developers. Working in a large organization demands high level of emotional maturity, Krish certainly demonstrated his ability to navigate through the layers of corporate maze and collaborate with other teams, he has earned respect from many colleagues. I had the pleasure partnering with him for more than a year as his enterprise architect. I enjoyed many of our technical design sessions when we faced challenges, but we always came away with well-thought solutions. There you have it. Krish is capable and dependable.

His patience and perseverance applied to "doing the right thing" produce quality, performant code and excellence in delivery.

Hafeeza Firthouse Kris proved himself to be a dependable mentor and a teacher and a hard worker with solid technical skills. I was always impressed by Kris' determination to train his mentees and advice them.During the JAVA Bootcamp Training for new recruits, Kris played an instrumental role in starting and growing the training program at Virtusa for JAVA Practice, where technical training was a important source of closing the Skill Gap and a key catalyst for Top Talent Acquisition in the enterprise. Based on survey responses, Training consistently had the highest Net Promoter Score from the trainees. Kris demonstrated a wide array of skills, from building curriculum, delivering courses himself, building a skilled team that he managed, and assembling a a training team with the internal resources. His hard work and achievements were instrumental in the collective success of the JAVA Bootcamp Training programme. His underlying message was always focused on individual growth and in the process taking teams and organizations upward with his passion and persistence, I recommend Kris without reservation to spearhead any effort that calls for an evangelistic personality and an "all in" commitment.
