Solution and Execution
Placing Sudip Mitra at Hubilo can best be described as fit like a glove. Hubilo was looking for a tech visionary to join their team for some time before approaching Purple Quarter to find the right tech candidate.
Hubilo’s management team were specific about their search expectations, they wanted a tech leader who was assertive and zealous. The ideal leader should have had hands-on experience and knowledge in B2C as well B2B companies. Scalability and a proven track record of technical excellence were of paramount importance.
After carefully thinking and matching profiles with the company’s mandate, Purple Quarter was confident that Sudip Mitra was the best match for the leadership role. Given Sudip came from a gaming background, the connection with Hubilo’s mission and the goal was instant.
Sudip’s personality aligns perfectly with Hubilo’s mandate; he is a passionate technologist with a proven record of high growth performance. Sudip was the erstwhile engineering leader at Games24x7 before his joining. He has around 13 years of experience building highly scalable, distributed, resilient, cloud-native products from the ground up. In his career trajectory, Sudip was associated with notable brands such as CA Technologies and Cisco taking part in fundamental roles like defining a Dev workflow and hands-on with both low and high-level architecture and design involvements.
What really stood out in this engagement was the turnaround time – Purple Quarter closed the position within a month of receiving the mandate. Hubilo’s management collectively liked Sudip during their first meeting and interaction, the mandate was completed with Sudip within 3 days of the interview. Although Hubilo was initially looking for a Vice President of Engineering, given Sudip’s experience, technical know-how, knowledge depth and fit, Hubilo appointed him as the Senior Vice President of Engineering. It was clear from the start that Sudip is a creator who is capable of working on projects of all sizes and complexities.
Purple Quarter’s specialized Behavioral Metrics Model(BMM) contributed to Hubilo’s closing of its Senior Vice President of Engineering role.
