Some of the biggest challenges companies face today is finding candidates who hold certifications. Most projects these days require PMP (Project Management Professional) certified consultants, Certified Scrum Masters (CSM), ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) and CSPO (Certified Product Owner) SAFe Agilist & SAFe Practitioner. The biggest ultimatum CIOs (Chief Information Officers) face these days are challenges to cost and time involved in hiring suitable candidates for their companies. This challenge is overcome by California-Based Canvas Infotech Inc. that helps clients by offering such certifications and finding staffing with niche skills like business analysts, quality analysts, project managers, data analysts and other technical consultants.

Alok Bhatia, Founder and CEO of Canvas Infotech Inc., wanted to share the IT knowledge that he had gained over the years with as many people as possible. That vision started Canvas Infotech Inc. in 2006. After providing careers and successful lives to many families, Canvas is currently 250 consultants strong and offers its clients temporary and permanent staffing.

Meet the Management Team

Alok Bhatia, Founder and CEO

Alok Bhatia is the forerunner of Canvas InfoTech Inc. With 21 years of BA/QA/PM/DA field experience, he dreamt big and started his own company recognizing that IT is just common sense wrapped up in a lot of jargon. Using this thought, his pattern of training evolved into what it is now and made Canvas InfoTech the leading company in its field in the Bay Area.

Pushpa Unni, Vice President Human Resources

If it is anything related to immigration then Pushpa is the person to talk to. Having over a decade of experience in Human Resources and immigration jargon she will ensure your employment with Canvas Infotech Inc is smooth sailing.

Sapna Kohli, VP Operations

Sapna is the veritable pillar of Canvas InfoTech Inc. There is not one department in Canvas that Sapna does not influence, be it marketing, HR, accounting, recruiting or business development. But, of course, her forte is Operations.  Sapna has tremendous work ethics and without her strong presence in Canvas and round-the-clock availability for anything Canvas related, a lot of things will just fall through the cracks. Sapna is gracing Canvas InfoTech Inc. for 7 years as of the time of publishing of this article.
