With 10 years of programming experience and 7 years of digital marketing experience, I am a mixture of 2 skillsets mainly –
Technology – I am a programmer, geek and Solution Architect. I love coding complex stuff and architecting complex software solutions. I have mainly hacked in php for 5 years, and C#.NET for over 7 years and VB and C++ prior to that. Last 3 years I have hacked with bit of Android, Nodejs, Parse, Angularjs and other related technologies.
These days I mainly focus my time on architecting software solutions as I don’t get enough time to write production code. You can check out my SO profile to read about what am interested in lately.

I am CEO and Founder of Socioboard Technologies , which I founded in 2014 as India’s first commercial open source product company. Globally Socioboard is world’s first and only open source product in Digital media marketing space. Socioboard was selected by Nasscom as Emerging 50 companies of 2014. It was also a part of Nasscom Innotrek 2015 where 39 Indian companies went to San francisco on a 2 week trek to visit various companies in the Valley.
Prior to Socioboard I was the CEO and C0-Founder of Globussoft Technologies (my first start-up which I started in 2009). Its a 250+ people company now, headquartered in Bhilai, India and offices in Mumbai,India and Menlo Park, California. Globussoft is the largest software exporter from the state of Chhattisgarh for past 4 consecutive years, 2010,2011,2012,2013 and continuing. Globussoft’s businesses are valued at $10 million USD today and we have revenues over $2million per year. Globussoft builds products and solutions for digital marketing Industry.
Some Notable Points about Globussoft –
We created a USD 10 million valued business in 5 years from a small C class Indian town which almost no one in India knows – Bhilai ( a small city in Chhattisgarh, a little known young state.) Imagine what we could have done had we been in Silicon Valley 🙂 I see entrepreneurs cribbing about infrastructure, amenities, lack of talent etc etc. But all we have to say is where there is a will, there is a way. Although today we have offices in Mumbai and US but the base is/was a small Indian town.
We hired a Russian guy, a Russian National as our CTO!! 🙂 , we are one of the ONLY FEW technology companies in India who went ahead and hired a Russian CTO to head the technology division of Globussoft, that too in Bhilai(our headquarters). Russians are known for their programming skills across the world and let me tell you he is a great guy you will love to meet him 🙂 And yes you got it right, a Russian National, Immigrated to India to work with us and lead our company from Bhilai. There is a long story behind this, I will narrate it in a blog post may be.

Now some personal Shit about me 🙂
To introduce myself, I completed my Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science Engineering from Bhilai Institute of Technology and was selected by TATA Consultancy Services, Asia’s Largest Software Exporter in Campus and joined TCS fresh out of college. Working with TCS had been fun and a great learning experience and I got chance to work with a bunch of Fortune 100 companies like Citi Group, Ferrari, Meryll Lynch and I even spent some time at National Stock Exchange of India as a trainee. Most of my projects were technology consulting which I provided as a part of Technology Excellence Group in TCS, Mumbai.
After about a year and a half with TCS, I got a job offer from Microsoft IDC (India Development Center) based out at Bangalore. It was a very lucrative offer with a handsome package and greater learning opportunities.
But destiny had something else in store for me. At the peak of my career and with a dream Job in Hand, I left TCS and turned down the offer from Microsoft to return back to Globussoft, to fulfil the greatest dream I cherished from my college days.
Globussoft my dream company which was ignited while I was still in 5th semester of my college was started as a group of 5 friends. We had no idea what we were doing, we just wanted to start something of our own and Globussoft was born. I booked the domain and created a bland site (by today’s standards) and voila we were in Business .
During those days, we used to build software applications via online marketplaces like elance.com, freelancer.com etc as that was the only thing I knew. It gave me a lot of exposure about many things of the online world, how things work online and how to build a business and company online. And today I can proudly say, Globussoft is a 100% online company, I have never met a single client face to face (except until we became friends and partners in future businesses, thats how I found Steve, Brian, Ilan and my other partners in other successful businesses which I run today.)
After quitting my Job with TCS in 2009, I pivoted Globussoft from an IT solutions company hopping from project to project to a PRODUCT company in digital marketing space. Cause after gaining all this experience I knew products is where the money is and today we have several successful products which bring us close to 2 million dollars in annual revenues. Our products are used by thousands of customers and some of our services touch millions of people online.
