Aakash Nand

Senior Data Engineer @ Slalom Build

Hello! My name is Aakash and I’m a Data Engineer based in Tokyo. I currently work at Slalom Build as a Senior Data Engineer. Previously I worked at NTT Communications where I built a centralized data platform that powered data-driven decision-making.

After graduating in Computer Science and working for 1 year in India, I came to Japan. My main work involves creating data pipelines, data modeling, deploying ML Models in production, and designing large data systems. I can speak Japanese as I have been learning Japanese for a long time.

Outside work, I usually spend my time watching movies, work on side projects, help people get to know more about Japan and explore Japan’s culture and scenic places by driving.

To get know more about my work experience and background please see about page.
