We’re so excited to share with you our newest 2022 team member, Vir! Vir is joining us as Account Executive, with his background in Start-Up Tech, Client Relations and Project Management.



Just a couple of days in and we already know he’s going to contribute an oomple😏 amount to the team. A few team calls and intros later, we want you to get to know Vir just like the rest of us! Check out what he has to say:


What drew you to join Oomple?

“I loved the vision statement of the company. I am an advocate of people exploring and having more flexibility in regards to their professional life, and helping create a marketplace that enables that really spoke to me.”


What did you want to be when you were younger? 

“I wanted to be a lawyer but soon found out that their working life is not that exciting at all.”

Well, we’re certainly happy you chose the career path you’re on now to be able to have you on the team!


If you could snap your fingers and become an expert in something, what would it be?

“I would love to be an expert in Poker and live out my life’s dream of playing in a tournament in Casino Royal in Monaco.”



What song do you have completely memorized? 

“None – I can’t recall musical lyrics to save my life.”


What shows are you currently binging? (Asking for a friend)

“THE best show of ALL TIME, Succession.”


What’s your favourite thing to do on the weekends?

“I love going out and trying restaurants.”

Don’t worry, we’ll make him start a spreadsheet and share it with everyone…


What’s something most people don’t know about you? 

“I hate the noise of flip-flops and can’t stand it when people wear them in public.” 


We're starting a bet on whether Vir is wearing flip-flops in this photo or not. We'll be taking submissions shortly😂

What quote do you live by? 

“Never burn a bridge – as its embers might burn the lush forest of life behind you – in turn, just recognize what went wrong and never walk that bridge ever again – be the better human while doing so.”


We hope you enjoyed learning about Vir and his aversion to flip flops as much as we did! Stay tuned for all the great things he’ll get up to here at Oomple. Looking to reach out to Vir and chat Account Exec with him? Head to his LinkedIn🗣
