They could take their Friendship to next level by reuniting after 5 years at XTGlobal. Ever since, they have been together helping each other in times of need, strengthening their bond and growth.

Murali joined XTGlobal, Inc. in 2007 as a #SoftwareTestEngineer. He was the foremost person to start the #Testing team in XTGlobal and he has built the entire team with both #ManualTesting and #AutomatedTesting processes. His Quality work pushed him up as a #QualityAssuranceLead and then as #QAManager in the Product BU. His Dynamic nature motivated him to upgrade his skillset with the latest technologies and so he has currently moved to #RoboticProcessAutomation Business Unit as a Senior Project Manager to train #DotNetDevelopers for #RPA Practice.

When XTGlobal, Inc. was looking for a #SystemAdministrator, he immediately remembered Kiran P who is known for his honesty and competence. Murali showed the XTGlobal way to Kiran and Kiran has made his own impactful way in XTGlobal for 10 years now.
