Aditya Nagrath

CEO, Elephant Head Software

Aditya Nagrath is the Founder and Managing Partner of Elephant Head Software. He’s also the Company’s Chief Architect and Strategist.

Aditya has a passion for technology, complex problems, algorithms, data structures, and delivering superior quality solutions to his customers on time. He started Elephant Head in 2009 with the goal of offering the optimal blend of cost, quality, and time to the market. This led him to create a team composed of top talent from Computer Science and Mathematics graduate programs in Denver with excellent software developers and graphic designers in Eastern Europe. Today, the Company’s customers range from startups to a $9 billion multinational, and include several long term relationships.

Prior to starting Elephant Head Software, Aditya worked for blue chip companies both on staff and as a consultant, including Dish Network / EchoStar, Lucent Technologies, Palm, Amino Technologies, and Symmetricom. Many of these projects entailed software development for embedded devices and required fast, efficient operation from resource constrained environments. The techniques and discipline he applied to these projects is at the heart of all of the work done by Elephant Head today.

Aditya has published articles in set theory including scattered lattices, semilattices, and lattice extensions. He has a BS and PhD in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Denver.
