We are on a mission to make your data sing. Based out of India — more specifically the cities of Bangalore and Kolkata — the team is a bunch of young, dynamic, restless and pizza-loving people.
Come check out the faces that make up Team FusionCharts.
They say there was a big bang. I do not know for sure. What I do know is that I was at the leading end of an explosion, and it wasn't pretty. But, the landing was, and so was the world I came into. Or at least the world that was coming into its own. I was there. I made it happen. I am The Dude.
The Dude* is the official FusionCharts mascot. His birth was a hat tip to our developers who tirelessly hack away at creating awesomeness. The Dude has grown to define our very own essence. Our curiosity that questions existing practices. Our pioneering spirit that does, learns, and improves. Our determination that never, never gives up...and then some. And the pure joy we share in making our world more delightful.
* With all due respect to El Duderino.

Looks like Einstein, only with black hair. Works silently throughout the day. This silence is only broken at exactly 5 in the evening when the birds chirp, the leaves rustle and his voice breaks through the silence to ask, "Pizza?"
Is singular. Speaks very little. And when he does, you have to strain to hear what he says. It is indeed true that most people consult him on any problem they face.
Forever eighteen. Can fire rapid questions at you in the funniest way imaginable.
Though he pursued audio wave editing, nothing could interrupt his natural talent for contours and designs. A Cartoon's envy. Our pride.
Works for a group of black hat detectives. Has been photographing and video-ing everything that happens in office. Is Rahul's brother (really!!).
Makes everyone happy at the end of the month.
Is quiet. Stays quiet. Works hard. Smiles sometimes. His surroundings are to be blamed for this.
Is simple, straightforward and humble. Can smell pizza in the remotest corner of the office. Probably picked up the knack from Nilanjan.
Always has a mischievous smile to complement the gleam in his eyes. Is a lady killer on the phone. Attacks food as soon as he gets home from office.
Sweet and strict at the same time. Always up with a lingering smile on her face as she thinks that's the only curve that makes things straight.
Is friendly and punctual. Talks to you only when you talk to him. Likes to believe that nobody has landed on the moon till date.
Can spend the rest of his life with his computer. Always tries to make his goals in life very clear. Often plays cupid, and pretty successfully at that.
A doting mom, movie freak and hard core Scoliodentosaurophobic (for the uninitiated: specific fear of lizards). Hates to be idle on weekends and fanatically believes that retail therapy is the best stress buster.
Wanted to play soccer for Argentina as a teenager. His biggest fear in life is waking up one fine morning and having nothing to do. Can make people comfortable around him if he wants to. Once slept for 16 hours at a stretch.
Resourceful and reliable, efficient and effective. Is too polite to manage difficult people.
Single-handedly caught a gun totting robber and became an overnight celebrity. Hates irresponsible people, fears his dad and loves to spend quality time with his family.
Aspired to be a soldier and ended up becoming a software developer. Dating extraordinaire - likes to date old or new girlfriends with the same elan and ease. Fears the luck factor and hates rude people.
Considers himself "A guy-next-door". He talks, eats and sleeps less but is trying to make up for those by hopefully going out on multiple short trips in the near future.
As a teenager, he wanted to be a Movie Director or a musician, because he thought it's a fun job that could earn him a lot of money. Spends his weekends oversleeping. This Pizza freak is on a continual quest for perfection as he feels his greatest accomplishments are always ahead of him.
The only non-foodie in our team who can do with just sweet corn soup for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In his teens he aspired to become a super model (may be the reason why he has food aversion). Holds a championship title from Bengal Martial Arts, so we should rather shut up here!
Wanted to become Albus Dumbledore in his teens. This Bengali-food fanatic enjoys watching cricket but when it comes to playing, sticks to Counter Strike. He got out of his fear of snakes by actually scaring a snake with his untidiness.
Sutanuka..find difficult pronouncing it.. Tanu will do. Seems serious but be rest assured that she is a fun loving talks loud, laughs loud, giggles loud and almost all while she works. Though the only thing that she is damn serious about is reading, well, the "Harry Potter" kind.
He is a singer in our team. He likes playing both indoor and outdoor games. He is generally very quite, but has an uncanny ability to closely observe people.
Seema achieved the remarkable feat of completing her Chartered Accountancy exams post marriage. She loves Italian food, enjoys good music and would like to see the world one day.
Loves sketching and making awesome coffee. She always up for an adventure. In her free time, she can be found either trying to remember significant events in Cricket history or learning Kannada language.
While in school, Avijit skipped paying the bus fare for 3 consecutive days (No, he didn't get caught…we think so!). He likes hanging out with friends, watching TV and would like to go on a jungle trip with a tiger…yes you read that right!
She aspires to win a booker prize someday and the rest of the time when she is not thinking on her book idea, you would probably find her watching a SRK movie. Beware of criticizing SRK movies in front of her as she wouldn't think twice before killing you on that note.
An absolute beach freak - is always up for random trips to sea beaches though he can't swim and is allergic to sunlight. An absolute foodie who loves meeting new people and exploring new cultures - and by "culture" he generally means food."
The singer, dancer and prankster… An absolute movie buff with a desire to travel and see the world features on top of his wish list. Oh, and did we tell you... he once forgot a script during a stage play... Oops!!!
Quiet as the dew but likes to observe people. A self-driven programmer who likes to dabble in technologies, old and new. Cherishes a dream of designing a game someday which will be played by thousands of people across the globe.
Meet Dishank an athlete, a fitness freak and a jolly good dancer. Put on the music and you will find him right on the floor. But none of his interests are more than his endeavors to impress the pretty ladies. He even once fell off from his bike in front of a group of them while trying to stun them.
Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple and our own Jithesh. Cracking down two cases of theft during his school days earns him the opportunity to join this league of "Black Hat Detectives".
Souvik is another addition to our football fanatic club. He had once captained his college team, leading them to a victory in the inter college tournament. If not cynophobia, but dogs do haunt him. Might be because of the number of stitches he got for them.
This computer geek can actually survive the severest of survival challenges, even forego his food, if he has his computer with him. When he is not busy coding or playing cricket you will find him planning for his vacation. A self-sponsored around the world tour is already in his to-do list.
Harbors a wish to travel the length and breadth of the country and paint his ride with the signatures of one habitant from each of the states. By the way, he has another fancy he wishes to be excellent at...Wine tasting.
You need not be a food connoisseur to love food, but love food for the sake of food. Did that confuse you? Meet Ayan. Food is his first and only love, though "Chicken Biryani" and "Mishti" tops his list of favourites.
Piyush dreamt to be reckoned amongst the good old names of Munshi Premchand and Krishna Sobti. He had once delved into his culinary skills by preparing a simple cup of tea for his guests and all his folks could conclude is that he may be an author but definitely not a chef for the sake of the people around!!!
If you swear by "Har ek friend zaroori hota hai" you will love Kishan. If we say he believes friends can be as good as family, it is an understatement. Families of his friends actually detest him!!! Chooses to talk less but talk good.
A foodie who is crazy about Chinese Cuisine. Be it any Chinese dish you will find her hogging the stuff without even caring to offer you once. An E-Shopaholic who can spend her entire earnings making Myntra and Flipkart rich.
An extreme foodie and a gadget freak, but when it comes to photography Arnab is all hysteric. While Arachnophobia is one side of him, the other side claims to have had experienced out-of-body experiences—aka "astral trips".
I don't need to "Get a Life"!!! I am a gamer. I have lots of "Lives"!!! This is what exactly describes Suvradip. This game addict is fond of DOTA2, CS 1.6, FIFA, NFS….and the list goes on. If asked to describe himself the first thing that comes to his mind is Phasmophobia. Well we are yet to find out if he has ever encountered any of them.
Believes in "Never give up your dreams". This Powerpuff Girl has a consequent list of achievements which includes getting her entire college friends and faculty organize and participate in a cultural fest much against her principal's wishes. Winning carrom and chess matches is her habit, by hook and mostly by crook!!!
An athlete, who was a champion racer in his school days. Prefers to talk the least, rather he prefers to listen to your concerns. A movie buff who once got himself locked in his room with movies for four days and even gave up on food and his sleep!!!
Chooses to talk little and only to those he likes. His grave habit of talking little actually once led him to forget his speech when he went up on stage to deliver one!!! The best way to help yourself out from depression is meditation. He not only believes this but has made it a practice.
Has a track record of maintaining relationship with each and every friend he came across since his childhood. Well that’s hard to believe but can't deny the fact. His biggest nightmare is waking up one day to find himself jobless.
An all time foodie, who loves travelling and adventures. Needless saying, he also loves to interact with almost everyone he comes across during his brief expeditions. Enthusiastic, a big picture thinker and your one stop solution, that is Gagan for you.
A volleyball-pro, wanderlust, a devil-may-care attitude, pretty witty, can add life to any random conversation. But that is not all.. Soumya has a creative side too. A devout musician, an aspiring writer, a passionate poet.
*With his love for the Bengali language, he dreams to have one of his creations to be published in some renowned journal.
A sports freak, table tennis addict, football fanatic, Akash has it all and yet he prefers to work hard just to party harder. His numerous acts of bravery include getting into a ladies accessory store to buy his friend a gift and was nearly martyred for admiring a bracelet only to realize that it was an ear loop!!!
While many plan and ponder on how to get into a party uninvited, brave Anik managed to gate-crash one such nuptial celebration, only to get caught at the end.
Well, if that was not enough, his neighboring chaiwaala once forwarded Anik his tea along with a cigarette, a daily ritual with only a small exception… Anik's dad was beside him that day.
Arpan is a passionate cricket lover and he plays the gentleman's game with equal zeal to lead his team to victory even when the situation is not as promising. But what makes him crazier is Game of Thrones. Well, he had his heart in his mouth till Jon Snow managed to win the last battle.
Never disheartened by failure and treats them as learning opportunities instead. Loves to read comic books and hone his culinary skills in his spare time. Deeply interested in studying paranormal activities, but deathly afraid of facing a zombie apocalypse someday!
Quest for the source of overabundant energy and a healthy mind has intrigued humans since ages, and Nakshatra discovered his in food, code, and music. In fact, PC gaming also does its bit of contribution to Nakshatra's unebbing spirits and more if only that he manages to figure out how to bypass the copy protection system in a PC game.
Prerna (whose name means inspiration) often inspires others with her strong work ethic. A friendly, God-fearing soul, this past Rotarion was a carom champ in college. Did we mention she once swallowed an orange seed as a child and feared it would grow into a tree, right inside her tummy?
A self-learner, Debayan taught himself to play the harmonica and his brother’s guitar without any kind of formal training. Presently has his heart set on mastering the flute. Recalls the time he forgot to carry his wallet while treating friends at a restaurant as his most embarrassing moment till date.
If you are looking at someone who is too lively, exceedingly energetic, decidedly sociable, desperately audacious and probably with a prank or two up his sleeves, then you are surely marveling Sumit. Ice creams lure him to such an extent that he can eat up a whole block in less than 30 minutes without even bothering to share with his fellows.
Jiten, a serious footballer took to the game not for the mere love of it but just to lose weight. In his school days, he once got reprimanded by one of his school teachers for referring her as a hot-headed. Well that is not a serious crime had he not missed on blurting out the word "headed"!!!
Sourav loves programming and is a number enthusiast to an extent that he once challenged his maths teacher to a solution that he provided to a numerical case only to end up losing marks and a guardian meet. He is a fervent participator in events and bagged several prestigious awards from his alma mater for his exceptional interests in events.
An absolute foodie to the extent that Anindya confesses that a sight of something that promises a treat to his taste buds makes his other senses numb. But if it is not food, he is a promising learner. Anindya had secured a runner’s up position in Table Tennis in his college days by just learning and practicing the game for a little over a month.
Pratyush once froze on stage when asked to dance at the school farewell. However, he later made up for it by planning an entire skit with his team. Deeply respectful of elders, he avoids smoking or drinking in their presence. Luckily, we don't think anyone here qualifies as an "elder".
Talk of hobbies and Krishanu has the strangest, getting engaged in a new hobby every month is his hobby primarily. And this Jack of all trades, ranging from blogging and cooking to making small toys and scented candles is specifically a master in gaming, a passion which he has harbored for the last two decades. And if that is not all, he is a voracious reader, not for the love of books but because he liked their covers.
Sudipta loves to be surrounded by friends and would hate to attend a party with strangers. Wants to lead an adventurous life like James Bond. Freaks out at the thought of waking up bald one day. We hear you, Sudipta. Indeed, 007 with a bald head would definitely look weird!
An experimental cook with a funny bone, Souvik is well known for his carefree, down to earth nature. Once stayed awake for 2.5 days at a stretch during his MCA exams! Loves to overcome his fears; in fact, he once went bungee jumping, just to combat his fear of heights!
Bhaskar holds the rank of 1st Dan Black Belt in Kyokushin Kai Kan Karate and was the All India Middle Weight Champion at one point of time. He loves to travel and learn new things. His most embarrassing moment? Falling off his motorcycle in front of a beautiful girl in college!
Fun-loving, emotional and introvert by nature, Sayani is an absolute animal lover; in fact, she fought with her parents for years to welcome Scooby (her pet pug) into her life! Loves the combination of chilled beer and oven-fresh pizza. May commit homicide if you mention anything against SRK.
