MUM Student Amarbayar Amarsanaa Wins Amazon Award
In his first year working for the Amazon Fulfillment Technologies DevOps (Development Operations) team, Amar Amarsanaa was named Associate of the Month in recognition of his contribution to, and impact on, one of the Software Development Engineer (SDE) teams he was supporting when he reduced their operating issues by 86 percent. More recently, Amar and a colleague received the Operational Excellence Award for automating the process of data consolidation.
Amar hails from Mongolia and began his international education at 14 when he went to Poland to attend an English-speaking high school. Later he enrolled in Dickinson State University, North Dakota, where he graduated on the Dean’s List with a bachelor’s degree in computer science.
After college, Amar was named Employee of the Year at a software company in North Dakota, and won a photography award. While studying in a graduate computer networking program in South Korea, he learned about MUM’s Computer Professionals Program. Amar was attracted by the curriculum, healthful diet, and quality living conditions at MUM. He enrolled in June 2014 and also became a resident advisor as well as the computer science representative to the MUM Student Government.
“Another reason I chose MUM was the opportunity of doing the Transcendental Meditation technique,” said Amar. “The biggest benefit of TM for me is that it helps me relax, and then I have sharper focus on complex issues, resulting in comprehensive and satisfying solutions without stress.”
After completing eight months of on-campus courses, Amar was hired in 2015 to do his Curricular Practical Training (CPT) internship as a DevOps Engineer with Amazon Fulfillment Technologies in Seattle, Washington. He enjoys living in the Pacific Northwest, where he pursues his passion for natural outdoor environments, working out, photography, music, and social involvement in worthy causes.
“It has been a dynamic and rewarding ride since I became a ComPro student,” said Amar. “I have made some wonderful life-long friends in the beautiful natural MUM environment. I will always be a proud ComPro alumnus.”
