Meet Zikher’s team! Our team is a group of unique and determined individuals who bring many different talents to the table. Below, you can get to know each team member and find out what superpower they would want to have if given the opportunity!
Amir is the founder and CEO of Zikher, who is a visionary, thinker, and entrepreneur. He was born and raised in Agra, a small city in India, and moved to the Unites States to study finance at San Francisco State University and to live the American dream. Amir started Zikher because of a bad loan experience, in which he spent four hours at his bank filling out paperwork and didn’t know the status of his loan until three months later. His frustration turned to optimism as he saw an opportunity for innovation within the banking industry. Amir founded Zikher Inc. in 2015 with the intent to revolutionize the secure data storage industry. Prior to starting Zikher, he worked as a restaurant consultant for 4 years where he led countless companies from the brink of bankruptcy to success. Additionally, Amir also briefly ran a small business online marketing company called Ventura. He is determined to digitize the banking industry and Zikher is just the beginning of his journey. He predicts that the digital transformation will continue because currently most customers prefer to interact with their banks through digital channels. The demand for online resolutions will rise as millennials represent a larger portion of the workforce, and he will help banks to meet their needs to stay competitive and relevant. As Elon Musk once said, “Some people don’t like change, but you need to embrace change if the alternative is disaster.” If Amir could have a superpower it would be the ability to fly to explore the boundaries of the earth!
Tushar is the Chief Technology Officer at Zikher and has more than six years of software engineer experience. He graduated with a BS in Computer Engineering from Mumbai University, and a master’s degree in IT-Management from Golden Gate University. As a system architect, designer and developer, Tushar loves to create and innovate. He is the author of two published technical papers in the International Journal of Scientific Research and Development on Distributed Systems and Computer Networks. As a programmer and developer, Tushar is searching for ways to eliminate everyday challenges with easy, digital solutions. He is a Guinness Book of World Record holder for Microsoft Inc. for 18 hours of non-stop programming. As Zikher’s CTO, Tushar is ready to push his team to break boundaries of innovation in the banking industry. As Steve Jobs once said, “The people who are CRAZY enough to think they can CHANGE THE WORLD are the ones who do.” If Tushar had a superpower, he would have the power of regeneration–the ability to heal oneself back to optimal health. With this ability, he could save people’s lives in dangerous situations like natural disasters, without the threat of losing his own. In his immortality, he would experience the history of technology and would want to become a professor to share his knowledge of technology.
Anthony is the lead Front-End Developer at Zikher, who has had an interest in programming from a young age. He has worked on various projects that include: online text based games, cloud storage service and an app for finding parking spaces. Additionally, Anthony enjoys working on personal game development projects. He works closely with Zikher’s CTO to implement the technical aspects of the UI/UX frame. Anthony has a wide skill set and understands the nuances of user experience. If Anthony could have a superpower, he would have the ability to stay awake forever because as most of us feel, there are not enough hours in the day!
