Let’s talk Work
How does your typical day at OGenie look?
My day is all about simplifying. Making OGenie one the most simplified, interactive app and it requires discussions, decisions, delegations.
You’ve been with the OGenie time from the beginning. Have their been many changes? How does it affect work?
Change is the only thing constant and I’m happy to be a part of the team where changes are adopted as quickly as they appear. I think it has a lot to do with our founders as they are quick learners and adapters and they have inculcated this culture at OGenie.
We work on technology and technology keeps upgrading and so does our working style. The change is more to do with the ideas on how to implement the latest technology and less with the team as our team is a fantastic bunch of tech lovers. Even if it is support or marketing, tech is a strong part of the entire team.
Let’s Talk Software
What process works for a programming task, from the requirement to delivery?
There are several models for such processes and each one has its own approach to a variety of activities that take place during the process.
Requirements analysis- Specification- Software architecture- Implementation- Testing- Documentation- Training & Support- Maintenance
At OGenie we follow it all.
Any specific web technology you are excited to work on? Why do you think it is the next big thing?
I’m currently working on SaaS and it is already big. Making software available to users over the cloud that can be used anytime from any device, location on any platform. It’s mindblowing.
How do you feel about contributing to open source projects?
Contributing to open source is a rewarding way to learn, teach and build experience in any skill you can imagine. Even making a small contribution or change feels empowering.

How do you unwind?
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Love to travel, anytime, anywhere. So when we plan to go out, there’s no plan as such where to go. Just step out for the adventure & it leads us to amazing places.

I’m a movie buff, especially horror genre. I enjoy watching horror films.
