Give a snapshot of your career progression over the years at Markelytics?

It’s been a wonderful time at Markelytics for the last 13+ years and I would like to look back at the initial days when I started here as a ‘Data Analyst’ and the growth it provided. My career progression here has been built on a strong foundation of research processes and this gradual transformation has made me a better research professional and a better human being. It makes me feel good to have walked along the company for these many years and to have witnessed its phenomenal growth. It’s great to be a part of this culture!

Describe your team.

If I described my team in one word, it would be ‘Young Blood’ which the Cambridge dictionary itself defines as people who have a lot of energy and ideas, and that’s my team.

Why do you think anyone should choose Markelytics to work?

Markelytics is a great place to work with, we have people from different cultural backgrounds yet each of us bond, support and create a friendly environment. The ecosystem of Markelytics supports a near perfect work-life balance which is a key for every employee in today’s generation.

Describe yourself in three words.

I'm a people’s person!

What is your management style?

I don’t follow one style of management. It depends on the need and the situations at that moment but it is always in the best interest of the client and my team. In a nut-shell, delight of client and happiness of my team members is at the core of every decision I make. Sometimes, it is a challenge but I’m privileged to lead a team of matured professionals who hold high corporate ethics.

What are the three things that you look out for before hiring any candidate?

  1. I would start with Intelligence and confidence – you know anybody’s level of intelligence determines 76 percent of their productivity, and the level of confidence adds to it.
  2. Look for a career-oriented person - I would want to bring on board someone who knows what they want from their next job and their career.
  3. Team player and a person who has the desire to learn more.
