Born and raised in Punjab, India, Gagan now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his family. Before starting Xillion, he was a software engineering leader at the fintech giant Square. He had engineering leadership stints at Atlassian, Akamai, and a few startups in the Bay Area. He holds an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Thapar University in Patiala, India, and an MS in Industrial Engineering from Arizona State University (go Sun Devils!). Gagan grew bored with a routine corporate job after 2-3 years, so he decided to pursue an MBA from the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business from 2013 to 2015. During that time, Gagan used to fly from Boston to Chicago every other weekend for classes while balancing family responsibilities and working full-time. In case you're wondering what Gagan does in his spare time (after work, parental duties, doing the dishes, etc.), he enjoys reading and exploring the beautiful trails around San Francisco.
