Um, actually, we lie. We aren't regular. For one, we are crazy about computers (each of us gets a Mac to work and play with in the office. You too can, if you join us ). Secondly, we each have skillz. We'll all be working on, say, turning 40 lines of jumbled code into a super-cool address book, and next moment, one of us is tap dancing to the other's Madhyamavathi.
Meet some of our folks. Remember this is just a teaser.
Many years ago, Rethas decided not to do what others would have done after graduating from Loyala college with a Masters in Mathematics (In fact, arguably, not many people would even graduate with a Masters in Maths). Also many years ago, Rethas decided to hitch his wagon to a little known company that was making cool software. And many years since then, Rethas has been at Tenmiles.
Rethas lives a double life.On the one hand, he loves Tenmiles' atmosphere and merged the company's ideals and goals with his. On the other hand, he (like superman) transforms into a carnatic singer often and escapes to places all across India to perform.
When he is not singing, or working at Tenmiles,or singing while working at Tenmiles, Rethas likes live sport, enjoys good beer (who doesn't?) and theorises about life.
Rails enthusiast. Coldplay fan. iOS buff. There is so much we could tell you about Anand. But the one thing that he would be so proud of is being called an Apple lover. His lips quiver, eyes light up and voice breaks down when he starts raving about Apple’s gadgets.
He is so passionate about Apple, people actually hide from him if they scratch or spill coffee on their Macs. True story!
Marketeer? nah! Developer? nah! She is the one who bridges them. Nandhini minds quality. She thinks for the marketeers and works with the developers.
She loves #hashtags and conversations.
Do you know what Tom Hanks and Vijay have in common? Tom Hanks was stranded inside the JFK Airport and Vijay was stranded outside! And he sports a salt and pepper hairdo, just like George Clooney. When not emulating celebrities in their real and reel life versions, Vijay backs the developers with lots of details.
With the help of his magic wands - spreadsheets and a notepad - he diligently keeps track of product development and integration. So, now you know who to blame if there is a feature missing in HappyFox! He is cool as a cucumber and attributes this trait of his to the teachings of Paulo Coelho and Robin Sharma. Oh, and he is the only Windows Phone 7 user in the country.. err.. company!
Pulkit Sankhla is, or rather was, an Eligible Bachelor. In the sense that he graduated from Anna University with a Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics and Communication degree. Later, he completed a certificate program in management of software development (CPMSD) from IIM-Calcutta. 2 Degrees, in other words, above zero.
He likes challenges, which is why he wakes up every morning (his window faces east. Poor chap) with the single aim of coming up with new ideas to implement. A side-effect of reading self-help/leadership books methinks. He believes Tenmiles doesn't indulge in petty bureaucracy (unlike the Indian government), one reason why he likes working here. And like every other Indian, he likes food and cricket, in no particular order.
A resonant voice, calm demeanour and fluffy hair are Shravan’s trademarks. He is in charge of keeping our customers happy. He loves music and is in fact a student of the legendary Mandolin Srinivas. Right from rolling the R’s to rocking even a Google doodle, Shravan does everything to perfection.
