Zynot delivers innovative software applications for Fortune 500 companies to increase their productivity. Our solutions use Big Data and advanced Business Intelligence features of SQL Server 2014, the latest cloud computing trends including Amazon Web Services, Windows Azure, and the latest form factors such as iOS and Android. Leading business magazine Inc. has listed us as one of the fastest growing companies for seven years (a rare honor).

As part of our fast-paced team, you will help deliver over 100 software solutions every year in an agile and fast-paced manner. As a part of the project-based consulting organization, you will get exposure to multiple projects using the latest technologies. The company employs over 500 people in three engineering centers located in Redmond, WA, and India (Hyderabad and Mumbai). As a key member of a dynamic and fast-moving team, you will take part in sprint planning, product definition, and software implementation.

Engineering Culture:

We foster an intense work culture with a can-do attitude. All of our key managers come from excellent educational backgrounds and have significant experience growing a company and mentoring software engineers. Due to our smaller size, we adopt the latest technologies and computing trends ahead of the larger industry players. As a part of the company's globally distributed engineering team, our engineers gain exposure to the latest software engineering practices and fast development cycles. Our developers routinely work on challenging technical problems that utilize the latest technologies for fast-paced software delivery

Examples of some of our projects:
  • One of our clients has recently made huge investments in marketing and sales using social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. The client wants to see which of these social networks are producing positive outcomes and providing key opportunities. The data is the entire universe of social data, and reports need to mine through each entry to identify strengths and weaknesses. The consolidated, cleaned and transformed data needs to be presented using an HTML5 platform that can be accessed using both portable and fixed devices
  • Display web site traffic data for ten million users per day. To display the web traffic pattern, you need to evaluate front end technology alternatives (native HTML5 controls or Power BI and so on). Some of your considerations will be development and testing effort, browser compatibility, rendering speed, database connectivity, and load time. You have to come up with the optimal approach and implement it within three weeks. Some of the tools used are Visual Studio and SQL Server 2014.
  • For another client, we developed a Business Intelligence solution to pull high volume data (more than 150 million rows) from source tables to a staging environment efficiently. We developed visually rich reports that allow business users to analyze the data from a different perspective and do what-if analysis based on business needs. We developed ETL packages to pull a high volume of data in 30 minutes and developed reports using HTML5-based controls with optimal page performance.

Founded in 2000, Zynot delivers innovative software solutions for Fortune 500 companies. Using the latest agile engineering techniques in a focused and disciplined manner, the company accelerates software initiatives that enable our customers to transform their industries. Zynot is launching an ambitious program (a moonshot effort) to partner with leading education NGOs (such as Pratham, Ekal, etc.) to utilize the technological advances to transform primary education in India. MAQ Software is in a unique position to facilitate and indigenize advances in AI to help deliver a personal AI tutor for students. MAQ Software will select and work with two leading NGOs to provide 3-year grants to research group(s) at IITs, IIITs, NITs, and IIMs to apply the latest advances.

situation:

Over 100 million Indian children below 14 years of age are unable to study at their grade level. With affordable smart cellphones having long battery life coupled with affordable internet services such as Reliance Jio, the children of India can get access to the power of a supercomputer. As with China, it is expected that an additional 200 million cell phones will trickle down to first time users in India as well, over the next five years. The current incremental approach is not sufficient for the students of India, especially for families living on less than ₹250 per day. Though India has 90% school enrollment, still, the learning outcomes are very poor (refer to Pratham ASER Report). Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) by OECD ranked India as second last among 74 countries/ regions in 2009 (last time India participated).

The traditional approach of one teacher per classroom can be supplemented with the use of cutting-edge technology especially for the children who are ahead of their class (20%) or lagging in their class (20%). With appropriate technology enablers and training, instead of lecturing, the teacher can work with students to complete assignments (Flipped classroom model).

Below are some of the current technology enablers:

  • Global Learning X-Prize (US $15 million purse) winners will be announced in 2019 to provide literacy without a teacher in Africa. They need help to further customize and deliver Open Source software solutions to students worldwide including India.
  • Khan Academy will release Hindi videos for India in 2018 for motivated learners. Khan Academy is already localized for Latin America (funded by Carlos Slim) in Spanish. Four million people from Indian metro cities use Khan Academy to supplement their education.
  • Leading education NGOs in India, Pratham, Ekal, CRY, etc. have released tablet-based Android applications in their organizations to provide digital learning. The software advances faster than the ability of the NGOs to recruit great programmers.
  • DuoLingo app from CMU for teaching English on a cell phone is being used by millions worldwide. Free DuoLingo app was written by one CMU master’s student and one faculty member.
  • Google DeepMind Alpha Go Zero advanced software algorithms so that their new software beat humans in the game of Chess and Go without using human player models. We hope that new software can enhance teaching.
  • Private companies such as Byjus.com offer online classes with yearly paid subscriptions in English to parents with middle-class incomes. Byjus claims to have 12 million students on their platform with 700,000 paid subscriptions.
