The pro of the month

This month, we’re highlighting the story of Muthu Guru Rathinesh Ganesan, Senior Consultant at Capgemini in London, UK. Having recently passed the Integration Professional exam, Muthu shares below what his journey to the highest MuleSoft certification looked like.

Muthu Guru Rathinesh Ganesan

I started my career in India as a Java Web Service developer and got the opportunity to work with a few integration tools. MuleSoft was one of them, and I’ve been using it for more than 3 years now (Mule 3 and Mule 4). I started attending a few training courses and then went on to complete the “MCD – API Design Associate,” “MCD – Integration and API Associate,” and more recently, the “MCD – Integration Professional (Mule 3.8)” certifications. These certifications drove my career forward by helping me land a job in UK.

Today, I’m happy to be a member of the London MuleSoft Meetup group to exchange tips and best practices with other developers. I also got the chance to attend MuleSoft’s London Summit in 2018. Some of my most impactful projects include well known U.K.-based retailers and U.S.-based healthcare and insurance providers. I’m looking forward to exploring much more on Mule 4 as well as to clearing more MuleSoft certifications.”
