At Mphasis, our core culture is ‘Learnability’ and we encourage all our employees to be ‘Geeks’. Mphasis CodeRush helped us engage with a large pool of developers to re-imagine and realise the true potential of coding that can reshape the technology landscape,” said Srikanth Karra, Chief Human Resources Officer, Mphasis. Commenting on this development, Sanjay Goyal, Business Head, TimesJobs and TechGig said, “I am glad that Mphasis CodeRush – hosted at TechGig - was a dedicated effort to help IT professionals assess their skills, and thereby embark on a journey of learning and knowledge upgrade. TechGig being India’s largest IT learning and knowledge sharing platform is committed to connecting skilled IT professionals with progressive IT companies.” Media Contact: Neha Verma, [email protected]
