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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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."
A dreamer, storyteller and biker, in that order. Legend has it that he can survive without water and food, but not without a book - any book! He's rumored to read even the random sheets of paper used by street hawkers to pack nuts!
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.
Jhilik is a foodie, movie buff, shopaholic, music lover. Superheroes and action figures also sparkle her eyes. This social geek has an affinity for all-things-peppy-and-colorful. A pro when it comes to nail art.
Is a member of our "absolute photography fanatic club" and an ardent fan of Marvel comics universe. Has a weird fascination of collecting knives!!!
(Caution: Think twice before you wanna mess with him)
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.
Fun-loving to the core and loves interacting with new people. A wanderlust who wants to travel the world with the sole objective - Meet New People. Good fashion and style are synonymous to this young lady.
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.
If one can, music is the best way to express feelings, when words fail. Subhasis is one of them who is absolutely good at it. All he needs is his guitar and he can do wonders with it. And when he is not dating this first love of his, its food that steals his attention.
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.
