Commutatus shapes you into a professionally strong individual by the kind of skill sets they equip you with,” says the down-to-earth Nishanth. We interviewed Nishanth from the Front-End team about his journey at Commutatus and received exciting answers.

What inspired you to join Commutatus?

My friend’s description of Commutatus was something out-of-the-box. So, out of curiosity, I walked into his office after my work. It was entirely a different work culture where people passionately engaged in conversations about how to leverage the latest technologies to solve real-world issues. Fascinated by this team spirit and work ethic, I set my heart to experience this work-life style.

The Selection Process

Though the technical assignment was simple, I took two days to complete it because I wanted to give the best. I was over the moon when I got my offer letter.

Commutatus steered me in the right direction by teaching me how to solve problems, which is one of the most critical skills to understand when someone is starting out with a tech career.

Life at Commutatus

I joined Commutatus on October 9, 2017, as a Frontend Developer. It has been a tremendous 14-months ride so far. As a Front-end Developer, I build interfaces that allow the user to interact with platforms.

My learning at Commutatus

Learning Angular, React and other technologies were my passion when I joined Commutatus — but I had no clue how to go about it. My team provided me a structured way forward by giving me ample opportunities to apply my learning to the projects.

Work at Commutatus

An exciting and challenging project that I have worked on is an ed-tech startup’s platform. While this project helped me learn to build the Frontend from scratch, I gathered insights on how an idea is conceptualised, the process and packaging the final product to the satisfaction of our client.

Fun times at Commutatus

I love the tight-knit team at Commutatus. Playing Laser Tag and chasing my colleagues around with a gun and shooting at them was great fun. I reminisce the many team lunches with the JavaScript Ninjas, getting to know each other and indulging in office gossip!

The Family of Commutatus

The people you work with are a big part of why a workplace is great, and so is the team of Commutatus. I am so lucky to have a team that is always accommodative. From Manzur guiding to solve bugs and developing features, Ramesh stepping up to get me out of tight spots to my team leader Abheek taking a personal interest in my progress — my journey has been remarkable. I have been in awe at the diversity of experiences from a team that is from different backgrounds. To sum it up, my journey at Commutatus has been awesome, and I am looking forward to many more exciting experiences.

“At Commutatus, everyone is young, passionate and supportive of each others’ growth.”
