Approves of CEO


Fantastic technology and people. I feel proud to work at this company.


The work can be high stress sometimes, but most likely better than the industry in general.

Advice to Management

Great founder and vision. I hope this can continue into the future.

    Easy Interview


    Best interview experience I ever had. The interviewers Imran and Suhesh were down to earth and very friendly. I wasn't prepared well. But they tried to give me several chances. And they were motivating as well. I will never forget this interview in my life. Cause this is how the interviewers should be.
