Let’s play a little game called “two truths and a lie” with Ravi Metta, our Executive Vice President of Product and Engineering. 1) He writes poems and short stories 2) he loves heavy metal music, and 3) he met his wife for the first time at Olive Garden. To give you a hint, when Ravi’s not penning a masterpiece or eating endless soup, salad and breadsticks, he is passionately focused on serving our customers by overseeing all aspects of product development and engineering execution.
Before joining Benefitfocus, Ravi spent nearly 20 years building his technical chops at Sabre, Dell, Dun & Bradstreet and Intuit. He holds a Bachelor of Science in engineering from Nagarjuna University and a Master of Science in engineering from the University of Texas at Austin (go Longhorns!).
Hobbies & Interests
Ravi enjoys reading just about anything, watching Dallas-based sports and traveling internationally with his family to Vienna, Austria and Interlaken, Switzerland.
“Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.” – Thomas Edison.
For Ravi, getting to 100 percent wouldn’t be possible without a little help from his favorite band, U2 (so he’s not a metalhead).
