A technology geek and an irritable perfectionist; that is what my friends know me for; my name is Husain Khambaty and am based out of the beautiful city of Melbourne – Australia. I had been working as a Performance Test Consultant for a leading global private bank in India for the last 10 years. I have now migrated to Melbourne looking for bigger and better challenges.
Things that keep me busy
Apart from the work I did back in India, I also worked with startup volunteering organisations helping them with their initial setup and guiding them in any tooling space as a consultant overcoming any technical challenges to promote their ideas.
Moreover I volunteered with NGO’s to work towards Environmental awareness programmes, Education programmes, Awareness about Downs Syndrome children and care for Young adults with Cancer.
And yes I just got married – my wife who also happens to be my confidant and best friend; tends to keep be busy.
And if they too weren’t enough
When I’m not out there working or meeting people; I’m inventing and automating – Yes its a passion of a kind (geeky one). I see a task and the only thing I see is how do I make it easier if its redundant. Name it – watering plants or feeding the fish or playing music when I enter the house. I love coding for fun. I use the Rasberry-pi to automate and interact with the physical world. In simple words IoT (Internet of Things).
I believe the ability to code is one of my gifts that helps me be who I am.
A wee bit of history
Born and lived in Kuwait for the first 15 years of my life. Moved to India in 2001 and most of my late teen and early adult life was spent in Pune. After another 15 years took a bigger leap moving to Melbourne looking for a better life and greater challenges.
I’m looking for a job in the Technical Performance Testing space in Banking, Insurance or Finance industries. I love systems and love Performance. Somehow my itch for perfection is satisfied when I am given the platform to improve the performance of an application.
I have about 10 years of work experience working on different technologies and different areas such as a developer, build and release specialist, performance testing and tuning, and project management.
I am really good at what I do. You can contact me on LinkedIn incase you find me a good prospect or have opportunities that may match my expertise.

I love meeting people and talking on technology and on various topics. I have been attending Meetups regularly in Pune and have started attending them in Melbourne as well.
