Hiren Kasekar

principal consultant, development engineering

My journey to io was triggered by my curiosity of ‘powerful thinking’ and its application. Being a creative thinker, the most stimulating part of my role is the quest to find a solution to a challenge by exploring credible optionality. I believe io is the perfect incubator to grow and nurture ideas into real-life solutions. I am excited to work alongside the industry’s talented and creative minds, aka powerful thinkers, who have the mindset to shift the industry’s paradigm and courage to challenge prevailing bias.

The people of io are enthusiastic about doing things differently – looking at finding innovative solutions to difficult commercial and technical problems in the oil and gas industry.

recruitment fraud

We have become aware of false job offers being made to members of the public, claiming to be from io consulting or agents acting on our behalf. The fraudsters try to extract personal information or money, claiming that jobs matching their qualifications have become available and that they need to send money to pay for work permits, insurance policies etc.

These emails are not from io or our representatives. We never ask for money or payments at any point in our recruitment process and if you receive one of these emails, you should not respond to it and should delete it. io only makes job offers following a formal application and selection process, including interviews and email communication will always be from an official io email address, which ends
