A bio is an answer to the question: "Who are you?". And since the answer to this question could evolve over time, my bio below could change as I age.
My name is Rijo Simon and I live in Sunnyvale, CA. The goal of my life is to delight in and be satisfied by God's revelaion of Himself to Me: throuh His Words, through His work in my life and the life of those around me and through the revelation of His existence in the Universe. I believe that God finds ways to enhance my delight and be my satisaction through the above listed means on a daily basis.
I have the delight of being married to the wonderful bay area girl Kaitlyn Simon who keeps me grounded, loves me unconditionally and cherishes me despite the proponderance of reasons to not do so. It is a delight to observe the work of sanctification that God does in her life, my life and in our relationship. Through this work we see God making us more one everyday. While I humbly recognize that this is something that will take the rest of our lives, that is also a big part of my joy in my marriage -- Seeing the long term work of God through it!!!
I have the delight of working in the Build Team at VMware. As part of this team I have the great privillege of working on a highly distributed system that facilitates developer productivity at this great company by providing them with an efficient and easy to use system to build software. I also get to spend a lot of time working on facilitating an easy to use and integrate CICD mechanism that works for development teams of different sizes, working on delivering a diverse range of products and services at VMware, Inc.
I also share the delight of working on a wonderful and diverse team of people at Prayer United who work at delivering software solutions for problems faced by the world's global Christian missions community working in the most challenging mission fields. We work with ministries in Asia and Africa to tackle their day to day challenges by implementing technological solutions.
I also share the delight of being an active member of Calvary Chapel Mountain View, where I and my wife fellowship and partner together with some great friends in the local missions field.
I also have the great privilege of being a part of the VMware Christian Fellowship, where fellow Christian brothers and sisters who work at VMware have the privillege of coming together to fellowship in the Word, in the sharing of life and praying for one other. I have observed God doing a great work of sanctification in the life of many through this ministry.
