Pranay Venkatasarasimharajuvaripeta

Pranay is an offshore coordinator. His job is to take Technical Specs from Eddie, assign them to an offshore programmer, and help them get the software built.

He is employed by TechnoDataCompuInfoSoft Ltd., a offshore service company that charges its client $50 per hour for Pranay's time while paying him $9 per year plus an apartment with 5 others and a bicycle. Even so, he's still the ninth richest person back in Thiruvananthapuram.

He works very hard: 9 hours in the office every day and an additional 3 hours at night communicating with his team who is 12 hours ahead. Then he has to do his "unofficial" homework: learning American culture by watching important videos like Office Space, Airplane, Fargo, Kingpin, and Dumb and Dumber. How else will he understand when someone says, "Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and delete all the javascript semicolons…and totally redeem yourself!".

He's smart, does great work, and never has to be taught anything twice. His workmates love being with him, but will miss him in six months when he's cycled back home and replaced by a teammate. After that, 8 a.m. in the U.S. = 8 p.m. offshore = Skype Happy Hour for everyone.
