Data DevOps Engineer | App Developer | UI Designer | Forex Trader
Hello, I’m Divyesh
A keen, confident and creative tech nerd with a passion for creating awesome design, writing awesome code and then integrating the two.


I’m a Senior Data DevOps Engineer for Accelerant Holdings – a startup InsureTech. What is a Data DevOps Engineer I hear you asking? It’s basically a Software Engineer who designs, builds and integrates data from various resources and manages BIG Data. I also introduce processes, tools & methodologies to balance needs throughtout the Data Development from coding and deployment, to maintenance and updates.

So, in short, I design and architect the BIG Data infrastructure and unify code, application maintenance and application management through automation of processes.

I am a Forex Trader and Mentor by hobby. I’m a fitness enthusiast so when I’m not on tech nerd duties, i’m either sweating away in the gym or indulged in my design world bringing my imagination to reality. Also an App developer, I love enhancing user experiences through developing and designing attractive, user-friendly and purposeful mobile applications for both Android and iOS.

What I Do


Using Scala, Python, JVM, Java, C# and Spark, I develop Big Data, Operational Data and Business Intelligence solutions for clients on a scalable level. I endeavour to provide the best possible infrastructure with future proof, clean, readable, design based code unified with deployment, maintenence and monitoring.


My passion for code and design integration has led me to develop iOS and Android apps with a key focus on an easy to use, attractive, interactive UI. After all, a well-designed UI is what attracts the eye and this is what I see through, from start to finish.


My craze for Bollywood and design acumen come together perfectly for this venture. I redesign Bollywood film posters in a variety of design styles ranging from old school to present day, giving them my own twist. So, if we have any Bollyholics, then follow @bolly_designs on Instagram and Twitter.


Taking my skillset and passion further, I started my journey into the world of Forex Trading with the aim to help others grow and achieve financial success. Investing time into myself to learn the skill of multiplying money, I am also a mentor to those who aspire to make money, anywhere, anytime from their phone. You need to be open-minded, teachable and coachable.
