VRIZE started like any other startup with a passionate team, late-night pasta dinners, and plenty of excited brainstorming sessions—with an emphasis on “storm.” They say the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. We got our first order in the Covid world of 2020, and a few short months, countless coffee cups, and one pesky pandemic later, VRIZE has grown into a 80-member team of professionals working to change the digital engineering world.
Our team is a multi-faceted group of experts in their fields, who always strive for outstanding results. The two values that drive our entire mission are customer empathy and engineering excellence. With these values at the core of all we do, any customer challenge can be tackled, and all aspirations achieved.
We at VRIZE believe our team is the best of the best. With 100+ years of enterprise experience within the executive team, we understand the solutions businesses need to succeed. If you’re ready to create a “friction-less” digital engineering experience for your enterprise, our experts are ready to help.
Maloy has 23 years of experience consulting and building technology solutions for customers across continents and for a variety of industries from steel plants to credit cards. Maloy started VRIZE to make things simple in the technology space - break the patterns of large complex contracts, measure solution delivery on customer success instead of margins, and establish that service industries do need A+ talent just like the product startups.
As CEO, Maloy is focused on building VRIZE as a deep talent company that believes in staying humble, hungry, and not shy of failing. Business impact will define the success and failure of our work.
The hours when he is not having fun at VRIZE, Maloy is out there with his boys playing football or kayaking and fishing in the Florida waters.
Rupa’s philosophy is ‘simplicity’; she has taken many a journey untangling business processes to redesign and (re)build resilient digital solutions. Having worked across industries, she believes that people, customers, and businesses want an ingenious outcome – ‘first time right’.
Simple is not easy; achieving simplicity is arduous, requiring discipline and imagination. After two decades across three continents, Rupa is applying these principles to ensure that VRIZE is customer centric and purpose driven.

Sales as we last knew them do not exist anymore. Manish's goal is to be the challenger to their customers’ status quo by helping them lead within their category. No matter the function, VRIZE's solutions need to be experience led and market benchmarked. With the plethora of solutions and innumerable techs around, solution decision making is increasingly complex, and tech skills are scarce. VRIZE's goal is to study the field and be their customers’ lookout in making the best decisions followed by a flawless implementation. VRIZE's belief is their customers would be their greatest spokespeople. And the word will spread.
Before VRIZE, Manish was leading Central and West sales for Retail vertical at HCL. Prior to that, he led the central retail portfolio of premier accounts at Cognizant. Most of his time in these roles was with CXOs and their leadership team to brainstorm and recommend solutions that moved the needle for their business.
Manish lives with his wife and two kids in the cowboy country of Dallas. When he's not with his girls teaching them equestrian skills, he spends his spare time refining his culinary skills, indoors and outdoors.
Software Talent is the new GOLD. The post-COVID world will be more software driven than ever before, especially with the renewed focus on solutions that are remote, touch-less, perceptive, and adaptive. VRIZE knows that they are fighting an asynchronous battle on talent. Babuji is building their talent density one VRIZER at a time. It is a deliberate and slow process without any short cuts. Talent at VRIZE has a high degree of freedom and responsibility to enjoy practices that are unheard of in the Technology Services sector. Working with young talent in the early stages of their career is a great opportunity to contribute to their professional growth and create future leaders.
Babuji is a seasoned business leader, having played several executive management roles over the last 2 decades. Most recently. Babuji was Chief Technology Officer at ITC Infotech (www.itcinfotech.com). Prior to that, he led the Talent function at Mindtree Limited (www.mindtree.com). Babuji handled several leadership roles at Mindtree, including Cloud Business, Microsoft Business Unit, and Retail & Consumer Goods industry vertical.
Babuji is an investor in several startups and in his spare time likes to mentor the entrepreneurs engaged in rural sector small businesses in Kerala.

Every time an element is out of place and there is discord, as a leader his focus remains on making sure the value delivery remains efficient and effective.
