The company primarily operates around helping fast growing organizations become modernized and sustainable. InfraCloud rose amidst increasing demand for cloud infrastructure, Kubernetes and building cloud native products as pandemic pushed companies across the globe to accelerate their digital transformation.
During the pandemic, it was one of the first companies to adopt work from home (WFH), even before the government mandated it. So they took up pandemic enforced WFH as an opportunity to build a distributed organisation and adopting work from anywhere model. This required different way of working such as the use of written documentation, asynchronous communication, avoiding unnecessary meetings and focus on being deliberate about culture. A recent survey also found that 83% of developers prefer to work for employers who are open to WFH.
Commenting on their growth, Girish Shilamkar, Founder & CEO, InfraCloud said, “We bet on a technology – Kubernetes very early on and invested in its adoption because of the value it brings in modernising the infrastructure and leveraging the power of cloud. We started Pune Kubernetes Meetup in 2017 and even Cloud Native Technologies mentoring sessions to groom talent pool in these technologies. With accelerated digital transformation the demand for expertise in these technologies is unlike seen before. Grooming the talent in these niche skills in a unique way, is something which we have been doing since day one, has helped us to fulfill the demand and pursue hyper growth.”
