TESTIMONIALS

BHARAT SINGH

BHARAT SINGH Product Manager at Citrix

I love Vasanth’s passion for the product, technology and pro activeness to issues. He is technically strong and willing to jump into any role. Working with Vasanth is always a pleasure and his “can do” attitude is admirable. He is also a very amicable and humble guy who love working and collaborating with people. Vasanth has strong communication skills and eye for high quality detailed work which makes him a valuable member of the team. He is flexible and understands customer value really well.

IVAN BERCOVICH

IVAN BERCOVICH Senior Director of Engineering at FindTheBest

There is hard work and dedication, and then there is Vasanth. Mr. Krishnamoorthy is one of the most dedicated and hard working individuals I’ve had the opportunity to work with. Vasanth’s pursuit for knowledge and self-improvement is quite remarkable. For example, when he joined FindTheBest, he was mostly trained as a back-end developer, but following his interests, he quickly developed the skills needed to build complex front end web applications, include a good sense of UX. As such, anyone looking to hire Vasanth should feel confident on his ability to compensate for any knowledge gaps in a short period of time.

NIAZ SYED

NIAZ SYED Senior Project Manager at Infosys

Vasanth is a genuinely talented guy, has excellent networking skills and can work through assignments with thoroughness. Personally, I would consider Vasanth as a very talented person and brings a very “different” mix to the table – essential to have in every team

Vasanth was a wonderful addition to our team. Much of his work involved developing drupal based web projects, including our event websites which are used by hundreds of students as well as our industry sponsors. He voluntarily took extra courses to make sure he had the latest training and made himself available 24/7, even when on vacation or when crisis arose. But perhaps, the best part of working with Vasanth is his ability to work with both technical and non-technical audiences.
