They say big things often have small beginnings, and this was true for MetricStream. Of course, we didn’t start our business in a garage, or a backyard, or a store room, but it sure was a beginning I will remember forever.


I remember walking into a multi-storied building in Hyderabad in a posh locale with well-maintained glass doors, receptionists, and security guards. I was escorted into a room where our co-founder interviewed me and offered the position of a software engineer. Hell, yeah! I knew I was joining a startup and I couldn’t be more excited to be part of a journey which had such small beginnings. Soon, I realized the room where I was interviewed was a rented office space and that we really didn’t have an office in India. And that’s when I really fell in love with the journey that was about to unfold. That was the package I was waiting to open which was full of opportunities, challenges, excitement, and happiness -- a journey which had endless potential.

 It has been over 15 years since that day. Well, 15 years and 4 months to be precise. We have come a long way and travelled very far. Some of us probably saw all four seasons several times. We grew from one person to thousands, from one tiny rented room to multiple office spaces in different countries, from no products to several products, from one partner to many partners, and from one client to hundreds of clients. There is this immense sense of pride, sense of achievement, and feeling of joy when I see our company standing so tall in our space, among our competitors, among our partners and with our customers… especially when our beginning was so small.

 While this feeling is all mine, credit is still yours. Thank you for being a part of this journey with me!

My association with MetricStream started in mid 2006 and still continues ever so strongly today. If I could put MetricStream in a phrase, I would think of a "cradle of innovation". I joined when we had just entered into a niche market and grew up along with the company, all the while learning and mastering new domains and cherishing the fruits of the success. MetricStream's contribution to my professional growth is immense; with the ample opportunities to be innovative, the right kind of challenges and some of the best minds as colleagues and mentors, I can only say that it has brought out the best in me.

Working with teams here is a joy as they give you their support and put in best effort every single day. Working  with peers is fun as you get different perspective towards everything , which broadens your outlook towards things. Working with manager is a learning experience everyday on how to do things and how not to do things.

We create an atmosphere which does not burden people but energize people. Events like “Joy of Giving” injects positive energy and brings all employees together for a social cause. Learning sessions are fun as well like “Coffee with Leadership” where our leaders don’t talk about work or company but topics that inspire and motivate us.(Sports, Movies, Photography, Books etc)
