Naga Puttagunta Joins Seraph Biosciences
Naga Puttagunta, a seasoned software development executive, joined Seraph’s management team as Director of Cloud and Software Engineering this past month. After completing his MS in Computer Science, Naga began his career at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles as a rising software engineer before transitioning to several leadership roles in the automotive sector.
Naga’s experience as a leader is vast spanning from successful startup enterprises to publicly-traded companies. As a founding member, Naga helped develop a fledgling software engineering organization into a global vehicle data analytics platform eventually acquired by Aptiv PLC. In his first six months with the company, Naga successfully took the platform from concept to a minimum viable product with a paying customer. He also grew the organization from just a handful of developers to a team of 60 engineers made up of Application, Embedded Software, Cloud, and DevOps experts.
Naga hopes to leverage these experiences to help build and enhance the Seraspec® platform. “As a start-up founding member, I have experience successfully taking a product through Concept, Design, POC, and Production”, said Naga, “I hope to use this experience in helping Seraph’s management team get this product with the right feature-set to market at the right time”.
Naga’s background as a successful leader in the automotive industry also makes him a unique addition to a medical device startup company. “I love designing and building streamlined solutions to solve technical challenges, no matter what domain”, said Naga, “I am excited about the potential Seraph’s vision and technology has to reduce antibiotic overuse and transform the medical device industry as a whole”.
