1️⃣Introducing Obvious

👋🏼 Introduction

We are pleased to have you join Obvious. We're building a team that understands our mission and core values and will help us to advance these objectives.

1️⃣ Our values

We’ve been in the business for 10 years. Every year we’ve evolved a bit, and with us has evolved something else: our values.

At Obvious, our values help us make sense of the world, while making intelligent and conscious choices. They’re the foundation of everything we do as individuals and as a team.


We are curious people. We are curious about how we can create a better world for ourselves and those around us. We explore the unknown, ask hard questions, and in the process, give life to new ideas.


We channel our curiosity to build great products. We bring simplicity and beauty to them. We consistently raise the bar by crafting products users love. Craft is how we express our curiosity to create magic.


Only when every byte of code, every pixel and every word compounds, great products are built. We amplify each other’s skills to create something greater than the sum of its parts.

Our vision

2️⃣ Meet the team

A great team is multiplicative and not additive! Take a look at the people that make Obvious, obvious here.


Dhruv Saxena (CEO)

Rahul Gonsalves (COO, Sales)


Jayapriya M is our Admin Manager. She manages the day-to-day operations of the company, the office, and the bills and salaries.


Sindhu Shivaprasad and Sidika Sehgal together run our Communications Team. They are responsible for ensuring that everyone outside (and inside) Obvious knows what we are up to and why we’re a great place to work.

Design Team

Vishwanath Pasumarthi, Subhankar Das and Elson D’Souza lead our design team.

Each team (or pod) consists of between 3-5 designers, with one person, usually the person with the most experience, acting as a Lead.


Monica Pillai takes care of People Ops and is your point of contact for all things people-related.


We work with an outsourced CFO-as-a-service offered by Entrust Family Office. They take care of our bookkeeping, ensure that we are compliant with all applicable laws and provide high-level financial guidance. If you have a question about finance, start by emailing Jaya, and she will direct it appropriately.

Most concerns fall pretty clearly within the responsibility of a specific team at Obvious, and the head of that team should be the first point of contact.

At the same time, every single person who works at Obvious is approachable and more than willing to point you in the right direction. If you have a question, you're probably not the first, so speak up!
