What is your role at Indix?
I’m a part of the human resources team here. I take care of both talent acquisition and employee engagement/development activities.
What did you do before Indix?
Before joining Indix, I was on the talent acquisition team at ThoughtWorks Chennai. I catered to both campus and lateral hiring needs there.
Why did you join Indix?
I’m really fascinated by the problems that Indix is trying to solve. I strongly believed that being a part of this exciting startup journey in the human resources function would give me invaluable learning opportunities and also enable me to make an impact based on my previous learning. Being a part of both head count growth and people development is a great opportunity that one wouldn’t want to miss! 🙂
What have you learned working for a startup?
I have learned a bunch of important lessons. You need to have the thirst to always stay on the top of things, go the extra mile to achieve results, embrace unpredictability, always question the status quo, constantly brainstorm and try out new ideas/experiments, be bold and fail fast, deliver excellence in organized chaos, value feedback received and don’t hesitate to give feedback. You also need to have an absolute sense of ownership and never pass the buck.
What technologies or trends get you most excited?
I’m excited about innovations happening in the virtual reality space.
What do you do for fun?
I love to read books, travel with my family, play with my baby girl, and try my hand at cooking exotic dishes, among other things.
What is your favorite technology product?
I’m a big fan of Apple laptops and iPhones.
How would your friends describe you?
A cheerful person who is very friendly and passionate about things that he believes in.
