Tom Mehra 

Title:

Platform Engineer

So what do you DO at Alight? 

I am working on planning and development of new features in Alight Analytics core platform, ChannelMix, which aggregates data from multiple marketing data sources. The problems that I work on usually involve dealing with large amounts of data, and being able to process it according to customer requirements.

What did you do before you came to Alight? 

Previously, I worked as a software engineering consultant for Cisco Systems utilizing cloud-based machine learning technologies and developing new and innovative solutions to solve problems when dealing with human resources data.

What do you like to do when you aren’t at work? 

I usually like to spend my time watching science-fiction or urban fantasy shows. My favorite one right now is “Lucifer.” Another one that I really like to watch is “Dark.”

The city where I live has spectacular scenic views, so it’s always fun to go out for a drive and enjoy the view.

People are always surprised to learn that … 

I have lived in four different countries: India, England, the United States and Canada.

What’s your go-to snack? 

Takis Fuego. It’s a spicy snack that looks like a taquito with a hot chili pepper and lime flavor.
