Kolkata, April 2, 2021: Tier 5, Kolkata based software development and SaaS firm with a global presence, launched employment programs for the interns today. Considered to be the first ever community owned and operated software development firm, Tier 5 specializes in making innovative and user-friendly products that enable the business owners to attain more clients and grow their business simultaneously.
Starting its journey in 2016, the company primarily followed a community owned module, and later changed its module to SaaS or ‘Software As A Service’ and since then Tier5 has been growing rapidly. With its 21 state of the art running software products and 8 upcoming products, the company has reported net revenue worth of more than ten million dollars.
Tier 5, in the initial days did not have any resources apart from brilliance of mind and sheer passion to excel. The company always believed in organic growth and counted on various social media channels for generating leads and growing the business. Since the beginning, the company worked relentlessly for growing the software, and at the same time, training and motivating the human resources to excel. As a result of this long-term vision, just within five years, the company achieved to cross Rs. 7 Cr. revenue in the last financial year.
“We literally started from a scratch. In fact, we initially worked with rented computers. The only thing we had is, passion and zeal to ideate and execute on new software and we dared to dream! Today, apart from the revenue mark, we have a solid team of more than 100 people, who work relentlessly to make the dreams come true. So, we thought of coming up with an internship program, training the budding dreamers and now including them in our team, to dream and achieve bigger” said Ms. Ankita Nandi, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Tier 5.
Mr. Jon Vaughn, CEO of Tier 5 said “when we started out it was service based company and it’s an engineering firm for engineers. we actually have 6 different levels that we can hire for our service. we had very very basic level like no engineers required at click buttons. The biggest challenge which we had faced is getting the qualities resources which we get, whether it’s a college graduate that we get who knows nothing about engineering and they even don’t know how to type on computer even some senior people who have 5-6 years of experience most of them when we hire don’t know even how to setup a server because where they worked at there, they don’t want them to actually grow more in their career and they wanted to keep them at their small skill set. If I help a company to grow there revenue not necessarily changing the world for the better but if we can give one kid education or we can give one kid love that’s something we are doing for the betterment of tomorrow generation and sometimes it’s simple by giving them hug. you must be familiar with Gandhi or Einstein what if they are one them who is not getting that opportunity that they deserve that’s we are driving for to give them opportunity”
Tier5 has a base of 15000 happy customers and the list is growing rapidly.
