We are Exotel
Our Mission is to build the best-in-class voice products that power the companies of today and tomorrow

Exotel was started by 3 techies in 2011. Today, it’s home to over 100 folks from different walks of life. The one common thread we are bound by is the desire to see voice communication change the way businesses function.

3 million conversations daily
85 million people connected
1.2 billion calls in 5 years

We are a bunch of smart, focussed and fun-loving people on the brink of something big. Cloud telephony is poised to change the way businesses function. Not just in India but across the world.

Awards and Recognition  we have earned over the last 5 years


CEO, Techie, Problem creator (and solver)
Shivku, a computer science graduate from BITS, Pilani, started his career at Yahoo! where he worked on Jobs and Maps. After being a (Yahoo!) superstar there, he left to start Roopit, a C2C marketplace that eventually pivoted to Exotel. He is usually found cracking PJs in the office and not letting people do their job. A self-proclaimed foodie, he is the best person to get the local food scene advice from, irrespective of where you are travelling to.


COO, Techie, erstwhile cartoonist, Founder of #Thuglife @Exotel
Ishwar is the ultimate multi-tasker. You’ll see him doling out advice, firefighting and generally being awesome. Shivku’s colleague at Yahoo!, Ishwar worked on maps and has a couple of patents to his name. When Shivku pivoted to Exotel, he roped in Ishwar. If you see him lost in thought at the office, he’s either working on something critical or figuring out the location for his next diving holiday.


CTO, RF-holic, Windows phone user
Sid has one big love in his life – building distributed systems at scale. This love story started during his stint with the Bing team at Microsoft. (This is also where his love for Windows phone started!) The only things that ruffle his cool demeanour are bad code, bad design, migraine and apps that are not compatible with a Windows phone.

Anand Kumar

CFO, The Professor
Anand is the latest addition to the BITS-Yahoo! mafia at Exotel. He’s the in-house professor at Exotel. He was awarded this honorary position because he has an opinion on everything under the sun and that opinion is accompanied by a book recommendation. As the CFO, he’s the terror of the core team. He analyses balance sheets and P&L statements the way a detective looks at a crime scene! Nothing escapes his keen eye.


Chief Revenue Officer, Techie, biker, co-founder of #Thuglife @Exotel
Karthik was the first MBA and the first product manager at Exotel! He was also the first addition to the BITS – Yahoo! mafia. Before joining Exotel, he was a product manager at eBay. He’s the core team’s devil’s advocate. In his free time, he’s also a #Thuglife evangelist at Exotel.


Heads Marketing, Tails Engineering, #cooldude, standup comedian
Sanjeeth heads marketing and tails engineering. The head and tail switch places regularly. He’s a marketer with a decade of tech experience and it’s only natural that everyone wants a piece of him. For the whackiest ideas, best marketing advice, or just level-headed business gyaan, Sanjeeth is your person. Fun fact: if you want to spot Sanjeeth in the office, just follow the trail of bromance.
