This January I am completing Four years of my life in Flip Media – a company that works like my passions. This is like my second family with a lot of amazing people from around the globe.

I was at Flip Trivandrum – Flip Media’s Tech hub, in the beginning of my career. The late night hard works and Fun life we gone through, was a great experience in my life there. 2 years before I moved to Flip Headquarters at Dubai, to join the core products team.

Most of the time I was working on development of Navisite CMS and its predecessor Chameleon.Each and every day we were going through some state of the art new technologies and researching on the best possible solution for our clients.
