MORPHeus Award Winner (Q2 2021): Krishanu Ghosh, Senior Software Engineer

Morpheus Awards trivia question reading, "Which Blueshift Core Value(s) did Krishanu Ghosh Demonstrate?" with the answers "Raise The Bar" and "Play As One Team" selected.

“There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.”

I’m sure most of you may recognize this iconic quote told by Morpheus to Neo at the beginning of the cult classic, The Matrix. This philosophical statement fittingly encapsulates Blueshift’s MORPHeus Awards, which is why it’s etched onto each winner’s trophy.

For those who aren’t familiar with our core values at Blueshift, the acronym we use is MORPH:

These core values aren’t just focused on how our coworkers act inside the office or on a video call; they also take into consideration who Blueshift employees are as people. We realize that building a successful company is about so much more than clocking in from 9 to 5 (or 9:00 to 17:00 for anyone outside the U.S.). Being a valuable member of our team means setting a higher standard for ourselves both inside and outside of work — and an essential part of that motivation is acknowledging and celebrating one another’s accomplishments.

In our second quarter of 2021, we had 26 total nominations for the MORPHeus Awards, including employees from several different departments. Considering each nominee received glowing feedback from the team member(s) who nominated them, I’m sure determining a winner was challenging.

Ultimately, the winner of the Q2 2021 MORPHeus Award was Krishanu Ghosh. Cue the applause!

Krishanu, Senior Software Engineer at Blueshift based in Pune, was nominated for Raising the Bar and Playing as One Team. Here’s what his teammates had to say:

  • “Krishanu executed really well on [projects] and was able to prioritize and shuffle things around whenever roadblocks appeared, thus ensuring that we are always hitting our deliverables.”
  • “Krishanu is there to help each and every time we need it, and his expertise in his area is exemplary. He’s a fantastic person to work with and an amazing teammate to have.”
  • “I think [Krishanu’s work] is going to be a game-changer for Blueshift…”
  • “Krishanu has gone above and beyond what was expected of him in critical projects…When other engineers say no to new designs and features, which can potentially improve user experience, Krishanu always gives it a shot. And, more often than not, he finds a quick solution.”

When I asked Krishanu what this award means to him, he shared:

“It is overwhelming to get this award. However, even being nominated in itself keeps us motivated, as it signifies our resonance with Blueshift’s values. The growing number of nominations every quarter is a true testament to the fact that everyone at Blueshift is in sync with our core values, which is the real win at the end of the day.”

Congrats, Krishanu! We all see, appreciate, and celebrate your hard work.
