/ / Why I joined Synechron

To grow with the company

When I was looking for my next opportunity, I had offers from several companies including a giant, global IT player. However, I wanted to join a company that was not too big, but also not too small. I found Synechron which was growing rapidly but still small enough to invest in the business and its employees. I realized that Synechron was the type of company where I could grow and advance my career while contributing to its clients’ success. When I look back a decade later, I feel I made the right decision.

/ / MY SKILLs, qualifications and experience

Chemistry to Computers

My early education is in Chemistry; however, I completed my Diploma in Advanced Computing from Mumbai in 1999 at a time when a degree in computer science was considered highly-valuable in India.

/ / My personal interests

Biking

I love riding my motorbike on rough and challenging terrains. In the past, I have ridden to Leh from Manali by bike which was a three-day journey. I have ridden on the second highest motorable road in the world i.e. Taglang La. I also have traveled across South-North-West-South Sikkim in six days.
