InRhythm strives to enhance, accelerate and execute cli- ent digital roadmaps by
building tailored solutions from
the ground up. As a digital
product consultancy, InRhythm
combines design thinking, software engineering, and agile
methodologies to create highly
scalable platform applications
and customized products in
ways that challenge and advance the status quo. Gunjan
Doshi, Founder and CEO of InRhythm, sat down with Consulting to discuss the firm.
Consulting: What were the main
factors that contributed to your firm’s
Doshi: The digital economy is accelerating, and our focus in partnering
with our customers to help them accelerate their digital transformation
efforts has been the pivotal factor.
Our pods of experts rapidly deliver
software products using the latest
and best advancements in modern
tools and agile thinking. Our methodologies, technologies, and people
enable ultra-efficient innovation in
our core practices areas: Modern
Engineering, Lean UX and Product
Design, Devops and Cloud Automation, and Enterprise Agile Process,
which are helping us move ahead.
Consulting: How is this year shaping
up for your firm?
Doshi: We are expanding to new regions. Earlier this year we opened up
our St. Louis office in order to best
serve our mid-west clients and expand
our portfolio. We have added more
members to the sales team, and have
brought on a marketing function to
expand our opportunities through ac-count-based marketing. This is a huge
pivot for us as we have previously
done business 100 percent through
referrals, but as we look to grow the
business we understand the impact of
active marketing and lead generation.
Consulting: How would you describe
your firm’s outlook for 2020? Where
do you see the most opportunities?
Doshi: We are excited to continue
our growth and expansion. There are
opportunities we are looking to pursue in cities where we currently don't
have a presence, and having the right
team in place is going to allow us to
broaden our reach. We have also expanded our product offerings in order to address the pain points we've
heard from many clients over the
years, which we will go to market
with in full force come 2020.
Consulting: What are your firm’s
biggest challenges in 2020?
Doshi: As a digital consulting firm
in NYC , hiring the best talent is al-
ways going to be a challenge. Over
10 percent of the nation’s develop-
ers are living in the NYC metro area,
and in 2018 alone the New York
City tech sector represented 333,000
jobs. With companies like Google,
Facebook, We Work and Uber plant-
ing their roots in NYC, our chal-
lenge is to be able to attract the best
talent without having a household
name. Many engineers feel devel-
opment is an opportunity they won't
get at a huge tech company, which is
why we have built the foundation of
our business on learning and growth.
Consulting: What does being named
a Fastest Growing Firm mean to your
firm, employees and clients?
Doshi: At the end of the day, our
great people are who make the difference. Our business wouldn’t be in
a high-growth state without talented
people working together as a united
team, and we see it as our responsibility to ensure they have opportunities to keep growing. Our culture is
all about standing out versus blending in, and receiving this recognition
is evidence of that. Our clients value our deep expertise and ability to
drive product development with the
highest sense of urgency.
