From The Director's Desk
Over my 15+ year career of shipping enterprise-class software products and APIs, I had experienced the workforce shortage for skilled labour worsen, particularly in the last few years. As a product leader, I needed to innovate, so we hired fast, from Israel, Eastern Europe, India and Latin America. And then I wondered “why are these teams not diverse?”, and “why am I not hiring engineers from Sri Lanka?” These questions came to be in the middle of the pandemic, when a lot of people were experiencing hardship and was the genesis for founding Nimi. Our mission is to upskill the Sri Lankan workforce without bias by matching high-growth Fintech companies with talented Sri Lankan experts.
