Parli is originally from a town in Nepal called Gaighat. The name of the town literally translates to “Cow’s Stable.” Perhaps that’s how the town started. Today, Parli lives in Harrisburg, PA where he works for Pegasystems, a company based in Cambridge, MA. Through Pegasystems, he is currently contracted to the Census Bureau where he helps test the technical architecture that will be used during the upcoming census survey on 2020. As a tester, he is responsible for quality assurance checks on the functions, procedures and User Interface of the system. He enjoys working with smart like-minded people figuring out solutions to large-scale and big-data problems. He works three out of four weeks from his home at Harrisburg and travels to DC the other week to meet with his team.
Parli went to Middlebury College, a small liberal arts campus nestled between the stunning Green Mountains on the east and the majestic Adirondacks on the west. He majored in Computer Science with double minors in Spanish and Theater. Outside of academics, he led multiple hiking and camping trips, presided over the Ping Pong Club, was elected Senator for his class during Junior Fall, worked at his commons office almost all four years among other things. He studied in Spain during Junior year to complete his Spanish minor. He says he loved his time abroad and supports anybody looking to make that decision. College was fun, he says, though he is happy to move forward and build things.
