8 Years of Life In Excess

I am writing this blog post as a tribute to the organization that shaped my career for the past 8 years.

10.10.2010 is one of the most memorable days of my life, the day I joined INXS Technologies (now Market Simplified). I am extremely thankful to the people who believed in this sloppy novice and hired me into this wonderful organization. I was merely a fresher with just 4 months of work experience. No surprise that they still continue to inspire me regardless of their proximity.

Write up about me in my office website.

I began my career as a Trainee Developer, since then it has been an incredible journey so far. The initial days at the Alwarpet office is the most memorable of all. I was dearly treated like a kid as I was the youngest of the bunch. Smiley ball cricket, Samco dinners, Late night XBox gaming, beach visits and what not. Few even used to make fun that I spend more time in the pantry than my desk. With lots of fun, undoubtedly it was Life In Excess.

Do you think this would wake me up?

The next phase is when we moved to Ascendas IT park as Market Simplified. Professionally the best stage of my career. I got opportunities to work on various banking and capital markets projects. With amazing mentors and project managers, I gained a lot of exposure to technical and domain aspects. Few of the most memorable moments are ShipIT Days, a kind of Hackathon where we work for straight 24 hours to build useful products. The highlight was when I got an opportunity to change my career path. I moved from software development to business development as a research analyst. It was a steep learning curve for me and completely transformed my thought process.

It was not just the professional aspects the company was highly supportive of my out of office activities. Which includes my MBA, Running, Jagriti Yatra, Travelling and Trekking. All along this exciting path, I was lucky enough to be bestowed with good mentors and earned a lot of amazing friends for life. I am so grateful to this place for enriching my life a lot of positive things.

My Place At Work – Filled with toys

09.11.2018 (today) will be yet another milestone in my career as I am relieving form my job at Market Simplified to pursue other opportunities. Will be missing my dear friends, my desk, nap room and all other best the company got to offer. But, Life has to move on. Isn’t change the eternal constant?

I am proud to have worked for Market Simplified, and I am grateful for the time and patience the company has shown in molding me as what I am today. I wish Market Simplified all the very best for its future endeavors.

The End … of Life In Excess …
