“Being a part of last 7 product launches, creating product team from a scratch and working with some fantastic people to finally release first version of India OxygenOS has been an experience like no other, undoubtedly a peak point of my career so far,”read a post he wrote recently.

It continued, “Joining OnePlus has been my dream ever since I held OnePlus One for the first time. Recruitment process wasn’t easy; I’ve been applying for a solid 6 months, hearing that without Chinese speaking skills they can’t hire me to the HQ, where product is being made. Fortunately, after spamming couple of people over LinkedIn, my resume reached Brian, who lead OxygenOS team at the time, and since then, in literally three days I was packing my bags and booking a one way ticket to China.”
