Team Behind Tyche

Vishal Kothari
FOUNDER AND CHIEF NAVIGATOR​

Vishal Kothari

I started Tyche in 2011, working on it part-time while holding a full-time job. We were two people then. In the last seven years, we have grown to a 18-member team, gone from working remotely to having our own office space in Borivali East, with 11 WooCommerce plugins on offer and several exciting things planned. As Founder and Chief Navigator of Tyche, I feel proud of the team, not just for the work we do, but the workplace we have built. Scroll down to meet them.

About Apeksha | tychesoftwares.com
Software Tester or, The Bug Catcher

Apeksha Shah

As a graduate in Bachelor of Commerce, an IT company maybe an unlikely place of work for Apeksha. But the mother of one found a mentor and teacher in Vishal, and together with her dedication and discipline, has now become the tester at Tyche. “I didn’t even know what a plugin was and was very under-confident about the issues I raised. But since our senior tester left last year, the responsibility to test all the plugins for bugs is mine and I feel comfortable with it. I really like the work environment, and enjoy what I do.” And the best part? Her 5-year-old son is starting early – attending WordCamps with her whenever possible!

Chetna Bhutka

Over the three years she has shifted here, Chetna, whose first job is Tyche has gone through quite a shift as she relocated to her hometown after two years in Mumbai. “It was difficult, but I have started enjoying the flexibility and that I get to be with my family.” Communication channels like Slack make sure she is connected always. “And I look forward to team trips, like the one we took in August to Kodaikanal. It’s a chance for me to bond with everyone.”

About Kartik | tychesoftwares.com
Developer

Kartik Parmar

Kartik has been working at Tyche for over two years, starting with support and to now overlooking the Booking & Appointment plugin. An IT engineer, he was always interested in programming languages and loves what he does. “The best thing about working here is the team. I can be myself, and we are always joking and fooling around. Professionally, the scope of things to do here as helped me get a firmer grip on technology and has made me a better coder.” While there have several moments to celebrate at Tyche, it is the last day of the Singapore tour that he will always remember. “We were all in the swimming pool together and splashing around. It was just the best!”

HR & Accounts Executive

Kavita Zaveri

With a seven-year banking experience, to shift to an HR role has not been easy for Kavita, who joined Tyche in April 2018. “After I quit banking, I took a two-year break to be with my daughter. One of my criteria to return to work was flexibility which I get here. I now feel comfortable in this role, and am excited about the new things I have been learning.” Apart from new learnings, she also has a lot of fun using her knowledge from her banking days to build processes here. “I like to experiment, so whether it is a dynamic salary sheet that generates salary slips, or attendance register, I experiment and thankfully, it gets support.” She is also looking forward to building the Tyche bookshelf, holding activities for the team every few months and getting used to an office “that does not have single sheet of paper around!”

About Pinal | tychesoftwares.com
Senior Developer

Pinal Shah

Pinal too, is among the oldest members of the Tyche team. She started with Tyche when everyone worked remotely, and has continued that way since. “I would take over an hour travelling one way, so that does not make sense.” With a daughter and home to take care of, she often has often had to sit till 1 AM! “But it’s a bargain I made.” For her, seeing the company and the booking plugin grow is immensely satisfying. And does she miss the fun of being in office? “Not so much. Plus, if there is a party, you are sure to find me here!”

About Priyanka | tychesoftwares.com
Support Ninja

Priyanka Jagtap

This is her first job, and as such, a smaller team and Tyche’s work culture helped her the most. “While I was hired for support, I could also try my hand at development for a year along with support, to see in what sphere I would want to continue in.” Eventually, she decided that the everyday challenge of facing clients, their diverse issues and the variation this provided was what she enjoyed. “There is not a day of boredom.” In the two and a half years, the main thing she has learnt is interpersonal communication. “I have learnt to gauge the client’s mood, temper and issues to help solve their issues. And to anyone in support, this is the main thing to understand.”

About Rashmi | tychesoftwares.com
Developer

Rashmi Malpande

A year and a half ago, Rashmi, already unhappy with her non-technical job at a company in Nagpur, met Vishal and the Tyche team at a WordPress conference in Nagpur that led to an interview, and an eventual move to Mumbai. “A new city, a new office. It could have been overwhelming, but the team is so supportive,” she says. She’s quiet by nature, so having a lively team that never shy from pulling each other’s legs is a lot of fun. “They are always encouraging me, not just professionally, but also personally, to speak up and talk more!” At Tyche, she got what she wanted – a core technical role. “After years in a non-technical role, it was so exciting to develop the Deposits plugin. I really feel I am growing here.”

About Upendra | tychesoftwares.com
Support Lead

Upendra Kapse

It was March 2018, at the WordCamp Mumbai. Upendra, already six years into working with WordPress themes met Vishal. Seven months later, he is an integral part of the Tyche team, though he works remotely. The main attraction was that he could work from home and did not have to relocate to Mumbai. “I am a family man and it was difficult for me to leave my parents behind. At the same time, I wanted an opportunity in the city, because smaller towns have limited potential. So Tyche is perfect for me.”

About Nitin | tychesoftwares.com
WORDPRESS DEVELOPER

Nitin Rathod

Nitin has been working as a remote developer for three years with a company located in Cape Town, South Africa. However, during the lock-down, they had to decrease the work hours of all employees, and Nitin found himself available during the morning. That’s when he found the part-time WordPress developer job at Tyche Softwares. “I love creating custom plugins and that’s what this company’s all about! After joining, I was surprised by the support I got from the team. In a span of six months, I have learned a lot about WordPress coding, GitHub, premium plugins, and more importantly- to work with a team. I am no longer the only developer at my job!”

Shasvat Shah

Currently, on his way to completing his Bachelor’s degree in Commerce, Shasvat received guidance to start a career in the IT field from our member Dhruvin. To learn more about developing, he completed a few online courses and even attended his very first WordCamp Mumbai in 2019. He even had the chance to meet the Tyche team there. A month later, he got his first job at Tyche Softwares as a Junior Developer. “As someone who does not come from an IT background, it seemed hard to understand a few things. But, with professional and helpful seniors like Vishal Sir who are ready to guide me at every step, learning and understanding new things became quite easy!”

About Tanisha | tychesoftwares.com

Tanisha Mehta

Tanisha recently completed her M.A. in English Literature and her next step was to pursue a B.Ed degree. However, Covid-19 happened and everything was at a standstill. With no end in sight, a part-time remote writing gig was exactly what she was looking for. “I’m getting to learn a lot of new things like WordPress, WooCommerce, and Tyche Softwares plugins. Whenever I have trouble understanding something, the team and especially Vishal, are always ready to help me. Plus, the flexibility to balance work, as well as studies, is an added bonus!”
