Our first office was just one room in Chennai, India. We had a bunch of failed ideas for the first two years so much so that we had zero revenue (and bank balance if you may..) till we built this product. Over the years, we have had a chance to work with a great set of mentors/investors but there have been a lot of people who have helped us without expecting anything in return.

We are just glad we met them. And sometimes, we want to win just because of these great people.

Apart from the people above, we've had some amazing set of people work with us. Their contribution to HackerRank has been immense and we are lucky to get an opportunity to work with them in the past.
