Marching to Moolya :-)

March 30, 11

March turns out to be a wonderful month for me third time in succession.
March 2009 : Celebrating A R Rahman Oscar winning moments. He and his music keeps inspiring me.
March 2010 : I featured in James Bach’s blog, which I consider as one of the  greatest achievements in my professional career. His writings fuel the urge I have in me to learn the testing craft better.
March 2011 : The most important move in my career.  Very proudly and loudly announcing “I am joining Moolya” (read this in font size 72 ;))

The marching started when I got to know Pradeep Soundararajan through his blog. From then we had regular interactions both online and also in person. I was impressed and inspired by his passion towards software testing. One fine day Pradeep shared the news about he co-founding a testing services company along with Santhosh Tuppad. From that moment on I started dreaming that I should join them. But I was not sure what their plans were then. We used to meet now and then, to discuss and fill ;) a lot. Later one day Pradeep asked about my interest in joining Moolya.  I immediately expressed my interest to join. Because I had already decided  to join them anytime.

It was one of the easiest plus the most important decisions I had taken so for. It was easy because I knew them very well for close to two years by now. They kept me updated about the progress they made in-terms of setting up the office. They also shared the dreams, plans and the visions they have for the future. I was so happy to be present in the inauguration function. Though I was ready to join any time, They were very clear in hiring.  They hire only if, they are very sure about keeping the employees happy both in terms of work and compensation. If you want to know more reasons why I join Moolya read further else start sending your test reports! :-). Then one fine evening I was asked to come down to their office and Pradeep said they are in a position to hire me. The moment I was waiting for!!!!

Why Moolya?
They are passionate about testing, so they care about the quality, customers, employees and also bugs :-). This is the place where you’ll get freedom to work over tracking employees by numbers and metrics. Place where you get responsibilities and opportunities to try and learn new ideas over running the same test cases again and again. Place were purpose motto is respected over business motto. And more importantly they don’t count the head, they count the brain. I love to be part of Moolya’s future success story from the start. I am thrilled and excited to work for\with such passionate and wonderful people. I thank Moolya for the faith and confidence they have in me, we will rock for sure.

Future looks promising and Beautiful!!!!

Also, I like to thank James Bach and Weekendtesting, they played a vital role in getting to know Pradeep Soundararajan and Santhosh Tuppad. I will not do justice to myself, if I miss to thank Pragmatist, the blog which I believe is the starting point for all this happenings. Dear testers please start blogging and let the world know who you are.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. “- Neale Donald Walsch.

(BTW, Pradeep already promised that he will push me out of my comfort zone.)

To,
Dear Gladiators and Spartans, :-)
Without doubt, so for this is the best team I worked with, in terms of commitment, fun and bonding. I’ll miss you all and the amazing fun we had together :-(. Thanks for all the fun, enjoyment and work we achieved together. Fifteen months with this team is the period where I laughed and enjoyed the most in my entire office life.

    I am highly appreciative of your parents who have provided you the power to exercise your freedom to take decisions for yourselves. I see a mindset in India where one would go to their parents and ask if their decision to accept an offer from a company was good.

    The parents would just ask one question; how much will you be paid?

    There’s a copy of Outliers in Moolya office, pick it up and read the chapter on parents influence over success. See you soon.

      Pradeep,
      Thanks for bringing this which I missed out, I would rather say I take that for granted . If I look back , from my 10 grade my parents always supported the decisions I’ve taken. Either ichoosing the majors after my 10th grade, the college and course after that. After finishing my engineering I wanted to do masters in aeronautical, so I was preparing for one year with no work and earnings. My parents never said no to any of my decisions, all they would say is the difficulties,problems to watch out if any. So I never realized the freedom they’ve given to me and the faith they have on me, I think I am very lucky. :-)

    Fantastic news, all the more reason to hire Moolya now if I ever need to outsource some testing work.

    Congratulations, I’m sure you do wonderful things there!

    Congratulations DS. Wishing You All the Best. I got goosebumps when I got to know on Twitter (though i knew before that ;-)). The first thought was, ‘Man, This is getting jealous!’

    @Jassi
