Also, he has a wonderful sense of humor and is a talented stand-up comedian! All in all, Dipesh is an all-round delight to work with!

Hemant Elhence

Saas/Enterprise Software Leader (Founder | Investor | Advisor | Board Member)

Dipesh has been an absolute pleasure to work with and a fine leader not only in technical realm but also when it comes to strategic planning and communication. Right from a young age he demonstrated excellence by picking up the toughest tasks on the board and seeing them through, while displaying skills of unblocking himself by co-ordination, communication and fair assumptions. He has grown leaps and bound to transform into a technology leader by not only early adopting cloud native Java microservices and devops practices, but also coaching, mentoring and educating his subordinates, peers and leaders alike. He is an impeccable judge when it comes to distinguishing between fad and non-fad in technology realm. A team man at the core, I would highly recommend Dipesh if you are looking for a technology leader who lives and thrives on building teams and delivering value to his teams and customer alike.

I worked with Dipesh back in 2018 when our company engaged Synerzip for their consulting service. He was tasked to work on something he had not done before and yet he delivered it on time, within budget. I was very impressed by how fast he picked up new skills and how well he worked with people from different teams, and some of them were not easy to work with. While the project ended in 2018, he continued to help whenever we had a need with his own personal time. Dipesh is technically sound and has a great attitude. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any position.
