Our data entry team helped one our clients create process and testing guides on Dozuki, the leading communication tool for industrial companies. The task involved porting all data and images from existing Google Slides to relevant slides on Dozuki in the defined format. This included porting of test data, resizing images, adding annotations to images and text and testing all guides. We ported close to 150 presentations comprising nearly 1,500 slides within a span of 1 month given a tight deadline. https://www.dozuki.com
Another great output from our R&D team: We have implemented a voice to text solution which converts the audio of a video into text and allows you to search for keywords. You can then jump directly to the relevant position(s) of the video. Check out our demo application http://voice2text.devdomain.biz/
Some interesting finding from our latest penetration test - at least if you are rather technically minded ;-) https://www.sapnasecurity.com/single-post/2020/11/24/OS-command-injection-in-latest-ethical-hack-findings
In times of the pandemic, virtual conferences and webinars have become the new normal. To help our clients run more activities virtually, we have developed a live streaming platform which allows sharing your webcam feed as well as your screen along with a text chat. This can seamlessly be integrated within the bespoke systems developed by us for our clients so that any live streaming event can be conducted within the system and without the need to download any additional software or do any additional login.
Indian lunch in the German office - happy Narkasur and Diwali everyone!
Recently I took some time to reflect on the last 6-7 months since Covid came into our lives and how as a business we dealt with it. I feel very glad that we have not been affected like other businesses which simply had to close (childcare, hospitality, training providers etc) but also faced our challenges - and lived up to them! https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/our-covid-survival-story-sapnagroup-jonny-hubner

Anurag, Nilesh and Jonny (sitting from left) during Jonny’s first trip to Goa (2004)
sapnagroup was established in April 2002 by Jonny Hubner, Nilesh Nayak and Anurag Jain and has over the years grown organically to a team size of currently around 65. In 2006, Shekhar Vaidya joined us to head our new digital marketing team. The company is still fully owned and run by the founders.
Our core business is developing bespoke software solutions and offering long term support and ongoing development for our clients. We host and manage our client web applications on our own web servers. We ensure that every server has a high redundancy and comes with sophisticated backup solutions.
The team at our 15th anniversary party in Goa (2017)
We strongly believe in sustainable business relationships which are win win situations for all people in the value chain. Our philosophy is that our clients should get professional service at a fair price, we should earn a fair return on our time and effort and in the process, our employees should get enriching work with a fair pay and good working conditions.
This has helped us establish long term relationships with many of our clients, employees and suppliers. Along this professional journey, we have built friendships extending beyond the conventional professional relationship.
Nilesh visiting our client, My Family Care, during his UK trip (2016)
We are proud that over the years, a range of our clients have come to meet the team in India and enjoyed the beauty of Goa and our hospitality. We also regularly send members of our team to the UK or Germany to meet clients face to face and to do some sightseeing in the new country. This not only improves our working relationship with our clients but it also creates a lot of treasured lifetime memories.
Personal dedication by our entire team and the endeavour to go that extra mile to get things right, has ensured that we have a happy set of clients!
Code Interactive team visiting our office in Goa (2017)
A lot of our work is done for agencies which use sapnagroup to power their designs and concepts. Unfortunately, we cannot show these projects on our website for confidentiality reasons, but we can tell you more about it. So please get in touch!
We have all the systems in place to stay invisible to your clients or to act as part of your team and be in direct contact with your clients. Unlike freelancers, we offer long term support for the software that we develop for you. We have a team with a wide range of skills and competencies; we can scale up or downsize the team - working on your projects - at a short notice, depending on the workload.
Some members of the team during an internal training session (2017)
In 2017, we not only celebrated our 15th company anniversary, but made a host of improvements in our software development practices; we adopted practices followed by professional software development companies. We set up GIT versioning system for all our projects, developed an internal training schedule, improved our security practices and documentation even further besides investing in new hardware and software.
For our biggest client, we formed a dedicated team of 15 developers who develop software using the agile methodology. For another client, we have been developing a complex eLearning software product. We launched sapna security, a new business area wherein we did our first security penetration test for a client.
Opening new, larger office in Panaji in April 2019
We hope that our slow but steady organic growth will continue over the years to come. With 2 offices in Goa's capital Panaji, we have enough physical space to expand and we constantly interview local talent to boost our team.
Over the years we have grown with our clients and they have grown with us - not only in the amount of work we produce, but also in its quality. We now deal with the IT departments of some of the biggest companies in the world, on security issues, so that they can allow their staff to use the systems we have built for our clients.
When the world went into the first Covid-19 lockdown we felt that we were prepared. But within 4 weeks we lost 40% of our total monthly income. Having always tried to keep overheads low and leave the company cash rich gave us security to keep going even with reduced income.
In addition to our online training system, we hold regular live training sessions in our office. They are recorded and made available to the team for future reference. If you are interested, please let us know and we will give you access to our YouTube channel so that you can then view these training videos.

Hi. I am Nilesh, one of the promoters of sapnagroup. I thought I would personally pen down a few lines about the company and what it holds in store for you, should you join it.
I would request you not to look at this company as a run of the mill, small time IT shop similar to numerous others located in Goa. A software company in Goa possibly gives the impression of a small time hardware/software unit doing Wordpress websites and small web applications for local industries. I think we need to get out of this stereotype. The Internet makes it possible to develop world-class software from anywhere on the globe. Before 2000, a US citizen would have viewed an IT company in India with the same stereotype; today he/she views an Indian as a czar of the IT world.
For a start, I have given up plum jobs at good companies (I have done my BTech in IIT Chennai, followed by an MBA from XLRI) in metros to come back to Goa and start this company. The idea was to develop skills in a very niche area. The focus has always been on international clients. Today 15 years down the line, I think we have made substantial progress towards our goal.
Above all, we've built a team of over 55 people here in India who ensure that clients across the globe are kept happy. Some of my colleagues possibly have such a good understanding of technology that they can put European programmers to shame. And mind you, all of them are like you, from Goa, from colleges like Xavier's, Dhempe, GEC, PCCE, etc. They believed that world class work could be done sitting in Goa and you needn't necessarily be based in Bangalore, Noida or Pune or even Silicon Valley.
To take this growth further, we require talented people who can take responsibility and challenge and deliver. We are working on the latest technologies and challenge will never be an issue. You will not be another face in the crowd (like typical big software companies); you will have enough and more responsibility to ensure that your performance stands out.
Ideally, we are looking for people with experience in PHP/MYSQL, Linux but someone who's worked on other web technologies like ASP, .NET, JSP etc. can also be considered. App developers with experience in iOS and Android are welcome and so also anyone who has worked on Internet security. Worst case scenario, if you don't have any experience with respect to the web but are still very much interested, please send in your resume, we will definitely have a look and get back to you.
If you would like to join this set of enterprising individuals, mail your resume to email@example.com.
Should you require any other information about the company or job, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will revert back to you.
"The company has always provided me a chance to innovate and recognised my innovations. The kind of work done by us in web security, Google maps and mobile apps has been a great learning experience."
Prasad has been with the company for more than 10 years and has been involved in writing complex code for web applications and mobile apps. His key work in applications like MyFamilyCare (www.myfamilycare.co.uk) and security audits for our websites have won him praise from the clients.
"It feels great to be dealing directly with European designers and using contemporary HTML practices. In fact, some of our HTML effects put Flash to shame."
Madura joined the company straight after her college. During her stint here, she has not only mastered HTML but also managed to teach new HTML practices to designers and programmers here and in Europe.
"In the last 12 years here, I have been learning new things everyday right from Agile to fixing SQL injections. It has been a satisfying experience to put all my skills to work."
Pallavi joined the company pretty soon after her graduation. She has been a key programmer in projects like MFC (www.myfamilycare.co.uk), Tinies (www.tinies.com) and Nannyshare (www.nannyshare.co.uk) where she handled all programming including integration with payment gateways.
Over the years we have collected a range of tools which will help us both work more efficiently. Design Match Tool and Encrypted Transfer have been developed by our own team. Give them a try!
We believe that personal contact is the key to a successful and long term business relationship. Please get in touch with us so that we can meet you soon!
