Tell us about yourself.
I am Prabagaran. I have been working as a Senior Design Engineer at Kovai.co. I have total industry experience of over 10+ years and have been associated with Kovai.co from December 2013.
Tell us the story about how you became the first employee of Kovai.co?
I was working in an IT organization in Coimbatore as a Design Engineer for almost 4 years. Through a job consultant, I came to know about Kovai.co.
The story of how I got this job is interesting. I was looking for a job and was checking my emails when I received a call from our CEO, Saravana Kumar.
The telephonic interview happened in the cybercafé itself at around 4.30 in the evening. He was quite OK with me but also wanted me to go through a machine test. I completed the machine test the same night and mailed him the next day morning. Saravana was quite impressed with me and immediately offered me the job.
I realized a Startup environment with a CEO who is technically sound will be good for my Career. So, I took decision which others wouldn’t take easily but years later I am proud that it’s worth the risk. That’s how I became the first employee of Kovai.co
