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.

He loves food, cricket and traveling.
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.
Can switch from serious to wild bouts of laughter in milliseconds. She has a thick accent which no one in the team can place.
Silent, unobtrusive, calm and collected. Has a boyish smile and can do the accent as and when required. Is quick to solve problems and has killer one-liners on the tip of his tongue.
Can give a Bollywood villain a run for his money with his roaring laughter. Thinks he can sell ice to an eskimo. Has powder for lunch and getting a six pack would be his next big accomplishment in life.
Is simple, straightforward and humble. Can smell pizza in the remotest corner of the office. Probably picked up the knack from Nilanjan.
Looks a decade younger than he is and has to carry age proof to a lot of places. Works hard but gets emotionally agitated when somebody doesn't appreciate the effort he put in.
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.
Has a boyish smile. Wishes good morning only to the people he likes, with a handshake. Can work for days at a stretch.
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. This one time wannabe writer/chef is a trained rock climber who is trying hard to turn a vegetarian and should accomplish it soon, given that he kicked the butt 7 years ago.
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 should do. The only thing that she is damn serious about is reading, though no serious reads.. more of a "Harry Potter" kind. She might look serious but be rest assured that she is a fun loving and easy going person. She loves to talk loud, laugh loud, giggle loud and almost all while she works.
When he is not busy juggling between his work and family, Arjun loves to spend time cultivating exotic veggies in his farm and volunteering at animal shelters. He is also into Dog Breeding too. So if you are looking to relish on exotic veggies or adopt a pure bred Beagle or Great Dane at great discounts, he is the guy to contact.
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.
His list of innovations includes designing a single-seat racing car which was part of Formula Student, England. He has a dream to watch all four grand-slam finals (tennis) live at the stadium.
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.
Rima loves sketching, reading and enjoys making people laugh through her mimicry skills. She has a dream to go on a self-sponsored international tour one day. We wish her dream comes true, hopefully soon.
A die-hard fan of Ilayathalapathy Vijay, Kaushik won the best SalesMan of the year award in his very first job. His wishes to buy an Audi/BMW by 2015 and going by his track record, it does not really seem an impossible feat!
Vishalika was born with a sweet tooth and loves to eat sweets, sweets and more sweets. She likes reading and dreams of becoming an art-movie actor someday.
Moonmi loves sketching and making awesome coffee. She spends her weekends in vintage shopping & camping and is 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!
Siva has an innate talent of imitating female voices....he once spoke with a guy in female voice for months and he almost fell for him. He likes reading books and visiting places of historical importance. Among his wish list is a visit to space and the Angkor Wat Temple, Cambodia. He also takes sessions for college students and under privileged kids on technology.
He likes to describe himself as a tiny headed programmer with a strong belief that few lines of code can change the world. He is interested in photography & mountaineering and dreams of climbing Kanchenjunga one day.
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. Quite a fan we'd say!
