We love to showcase the awesome people who work here at 729 Solutions because they are more than just great employees – they are creative and interesting people! Today we spoke with Manish, a 729er who like most of us, wears many hats in his role here as a Developer. He is one of our Certified Zendesk Administrator’s who has worked on many custom Guide and Support Configuration projects. He is also well versed in front end development using HTML/CSS and several CRMs.
While many of our developers are self-taught, that’s not the case for Manish! He holds a Master of Computer Applications (MCA) degree from Rohtak University as well as a Bachelor of Science degree from HNB Garhwal University.
Manish lives in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India with his family, and has been working in the software industry since 2007.

Apart from Uttarakhand, I like visiting other places in India like Kerala and Kanyakumari.
I also love to listen to Bollywood music and independent Punjabi songs!
