Murali Gurrala

Project Manager

Growing up, I have always been obsessed with technology. As a child, watching cartoons made me wonder about the intricacies of broadcast, creation, etc. This sparked my interest in thinking about how technology powers our world and its ability to change mankind. My love for tech only grew over time, and I quickly realized that engineering is the obvious career choice for me.  

Post my engineering, I worked as a SAP developer and began to understand the importance of having processes in place to implement any technology. This led me to explore process areas and started doing my certifications to understand them in depth. During this time, I also realized how crucial it is to constantly stay up to date with the latest technologies. I have taken several certifications over the years, including, PSPO I, CSM, CSP, ITIL, Leading SAFe, Prince 2 Practitioner, and AWS Associate Architect. 

I started my journey with HashedIn in September 2020, and I am currently working as a Project Manager. Having been a part of projects across various verticals like manufacturing, retail logistics, transportation, etc., I have realized that while it is important to adhere to client requirements, it is equally important to consider the practicalities of what can be implemented and what can be the plausible gaps during execution. With a supportive Leadership Team, each day is an opportunity to learn something new and explore my capabilities.  

I vividly remember a project which was assigned to me where the requirements kept piling up. When I was pulled in, I ensured that proper processes were in place, and consequently, I was able to deliver the committed items in a very short span of time. I’m happy that my efforts were recognized and I was awarded the Best Delivery Manager for this project.  I’ve also won several awards back-to-back while working on-site. One of the clients has also given me a handwritten note for my work and that was one of the most cherished moments of my professional career.   

Amidst all the reports, scrum calls, resource planning, and client calls, I often make time for other activities like training workshops, mentoring new joiners, skits, fashion shows, etc. In my free time, I enjoy playing cricket, and a few other outdoor games and cooking. I have been a district-level badminton player as well. I live by the motto of being passionate about whatever I do and being honest to myself. I think failure is the best teacher in life and must be learned from!
