Mani had shared the stage with Barra at Google I/O 2013 conference, helping him with demos. Mani worked as Google Play Strategy and Analytics associate for over 2 years, before quitting in November last year. But he had been a part of Google since November 2009. His LinkedIn profile says that after leaving Google he had co-founded a startup, though no further details have been mentioned.
