Founder Story

Karthik K and Swaathi Kakarla started working together in 2013. They instantly knew that they shared a deep passion for building products with care, passion and extremely good quality. They tried working with various companies, analyzed the market for companies who care deeply about good code and quality, and usually ended up with a very small list. They knew that this was a big opportunity to do something on their own, and that's when Skcript was born.

After started Skcript, the first call went to Varun Raj, who is known to share the same values, to join the company. Today, he is one of the key person who sits in the company's board to take the right calls.

Skcript was created with a pure focus to write extremely good quality code, minimal yet functional design and keen eye for quality deliveries. The focus initially was to build their own products and bootstrap their way to the top. In 2015, Skcript decided to help other companies achieve what we were achieving with our products, due to requests from customers.

Karthik, Swaathi and Varun (the founders) loved seeing their customers get more than what they were promised. They found that though customers are experts in what they do, it is only right for us to solve a business problem for them for the longer run.

In 2016, the founders decided to go global, and on-boarded some of the best people to make that transition happen. From the beginning, the founders believed that smaller teams of powerful people make a huge impact in this world.

In 2017, we started empowering our customers by using our home-grown products like UnderstandBetter, which allowed employees to voice out their opinions easily to their management without the fear of bias. In 2018, the product was made as a separate company on its own with Pankaj Harita as the CEO and Swaathi Kakarla as the CTO.

As of 2019, Skcript is a fast growing company with teams spread across Chennai and Dubai. The founders credit everything to the team for the growth and deliverables. As our company continues to grow organically, without any external funding, one thing remains the same: Skcript's mission to help customers be future-ready.
