Appian Chennai is led by seasoned IT executive Ramesh Ardhanari, who is named Vice President of Engineering. He reports directly to Suvajit Gupta, Appian Executive Vice President of Engineering. Ardhanari said, “Creating the world’s most advanced low-code technology requires the skills of the world’s best high-code developers. India has a wealth of software talent, and Appian provides truly rewarding career opportunities in this cutting-edge industry. That’s why I’m excited to lead our expansion into India.”
The Appian Engineering culture is based on the understanding that the next great idea can come from anyone in the organization. Debate is encouraged across all levels, and innovative thinking is rewarded. Appian Engineering works in a continuous delivery model with an Agile methodology to meet quarterly release cycles. Engineering teams are spread across specialized pods, with mobility across teams, and “Indie Time” for all developers to pursue passion projects. Like all Appian teams, Appian Chennai engineering teams are autonomous, enabling them to work together independently with few dependencies on other locations.
“Appian is leading the convergence of the low-code market. We combine process mining, workflow, and automation in a single low-code suite,” said Matt Calkins. “Appian’s expansion to India increases our access to top engineering talent, allowing us to expand our low-code platform and launch new offerings to pioneer our market.”
