Sachin most recently founded Connected, a professional contact manager that was acquired by LinkedIn in 2011 and re-launched as LinkedIn Contacts. He went on become head of product for LinkedIn Sales Navigator, LinkedIn's flagship offering for sales professionals.

Sachin started his career at Microsoft as a product lead on Visual Studio, Microsoft's developer tools platform.
