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.

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. As much as we need new technologies, most of our enterprise challenges come from the right and wrongs in the choice of technology and its application, from ignoring the human systems that are both the means and end to the technology implementations. Babuji has taken an objective of working with VRIZE’s talented and driven engineering team to build and implement solutions that leverage technology products and services in their most simple and friction-less form. This requires the team to be close to customer objectives and carry a strong handle on technologies involved.

In his role as a CTO at VRIZE, Babuji will not only be charting the technology roadmap for the company but also be the voice of customer in key technology choices.

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.
