Mangala started his career in Silicon Valley during the .COM boom, where he held various Internet engineering and management roles at Fortune 1000 technology companies and dot-coms. In addition to founding Calcey in 2002, he also founded eConceptions, RideLanka, OneClickTel, ShopMagik, Thrively.io and a few other companies. Mangala faced many challenges when working with offshore engineers from San Francisco, and was inspired to start a company that ‘gets it’. Thus, Calcey was born.
Aside from his position as CEO of Calcey, Mangala serves as the co-chairman of FARO (Foundation for Advancing Rural Opportunity); a nonprofit organization, which actively assists rural youth in Sri Lanka to find sustainable employment in the outsourcing industry and Karuna Trust. He also sits on the board of directors of SLASSCOM; the Knowledge and Innovation chamber of Sri Lanka.
