Inspired by the Sanskrit word "shoonye", frequently anglicized to be pronounced as "shoonya", Shoonye means "zero" - nothing.
Mathematicians and philosophers have forever dabbled with the problem of representing nothing. After all, how can nothing be something? Eventually, this was solved when the concept of 'shoonye' was invented in India. Shoonye was not just a placeholder, it was treated like another number. Ever since then, shoonye has played a fundamental role in mathematics. It is the basis of many algebraic structures. A simple yet elegant solution to an age-old problem.
So why do we call ourselves 'Shoonye'?
We take our inspiration from this simple solution and internalize this philosophy into each of our actions. We take time to analyze the problem and strive to provide a solution that can be the foundation of a new beginning.
We work with businesses to understand their requirements and provide a simple but comprehensive solution to their problems.
We know how quickly business requirements change and a successful software design need to be adaptive to survive the competition. We have been been very careful in selecting project and team members. We have taken our time to grow slowly but made conscious effort to stick to our core values.
We only engage with clients where we find synergy. We work with companies that seek solution that are long lasting and of highest quality. Once we have decided to work for a client, we focus our efforts to make their plans successful. Our approach is simple:
Agile continuous engagement and constant user feedback
OOAD map objects in real life to code
Open Source find and use awesome free libraries
Rock-star Engineers we hire the best developers
We generally do not engage in fixed cost project. We work on agile development, with 2 week sprint cycle. We guarantee predictable cost on our sprints and project.
