Software Engineer from Hyderabad Secures Dream Job with 400% Salary Hike after Upskilling from Scaler

HYDERABAD, MAY 15, 2024: Manideep Siva, a software engineer hailing from Hyderabad, achieved his dream role as SDE II at Slice, accompanied by an impressive salary hike of 400%, through sheer perseverance and the transformative power of upskilling from Scaler. His journey is a testament to the potential of hard work, determination, and the right mentorship to reshape one’s career trajectory.

Growing up in Hyderabad, Manideep had always hoped to join a prestigious institution like IIT or IIIT. Despite his efforts, however, he found himself enrolled in a Tier-3 college in the city. It was this turn of events that led Manideep to realise the need to upskill in order to bridge the gap between his aspirations and his current situation. He came across the InterviewBit platform during his college days, actively participating in interview practice sessions through this platform and eventually becoming a campus ambassador for them in his third year. Despite securing placement in a service-based company during his final year, Manideep remained dedicated to his vision of working in a product-based MAANG company, which aligned more closely with his ambitions.

Determined to turn his dreams into reality, Manideep took charge of his situation and sought guidance to navigate the tech industry. Having previous experience with InterviewBit, he took the opportunity to enrol in Scaler.  At Scaler, Manideep found himself in a dynamic learning environment where he received personalised mentorship from industry experts who had previously worked with tech giants like Microsoft, Flipkart, Amazon, and Google. Leveraging the extensive resources and guidance provided by his instructors, Manideep honed his skills and improved his understanding of fundamental computer science concepts, propelling him towards his career aspirations. Manideep’s hard work bore fruit when he received job offers from both a prestigious MAANG company and Slice, a high-growth startup.

Reflecting on his journey, Manideep said, “The single decision to enrol in Scaler changed the course of my entire career. At Scaler, I was given the opportunity to equip myself with the skills I had previously lacked and become industry-relevant enough to receive job offers from both a MAANG company and Slice. Ultimately, I chose the latter, as I believed it to be the best choice for the career path I had envisioned. I realised that Scaler had allowed me to grow even beyond my expectations. It was a blessing to have access to mentors who guided and advised me so selflessly, and I thank Abhimanyu, Anshuman, and the entire Scaler team for their dedication to supporting tech professionals such as myself. I would also like to remind other aspiring professionals to keep striving for their dreams with consistency and discipline and to never settle for less.”

Abhimanyu Saxena, co-founder of Scaler and InterviewBit, stated, “Manideep’s journey to success is a perfect example of the impact dedication, resilience, and the right guidance can have in realising one’s ambitions. Despite setbacks, Manideep persevered until he was able to land his dream role, and we at Scaler are immensely proud of his achievements. We are delighted to be a part of his success as well as those of the other students who benefited from Scaler. I hope other tech aspirants become inspired by Manideep, who remains a shining example of the boundless possibilities that await those who dare to dream.”
