Work With Us

We are a small team, and we like to keep things that way. This helps us recognize and value each others work, needs and aspirations. So when we do grow, we make sure to have everything well thought out for the new team member!

Hello Hello!

We are a curious bunch of designers and developers, who like to keep things simple, easy and open. Not just for the people we provide services to, but also amongst ourselves. Some of us work from home, while others work daily from our office in South Delhi. Working schedules are also flexible and we do things at a comfortable pace. Weekends are officially off, but of course, if you prefer your weekend to be on a Thursday instead, nothing can really stop you. Client expectations and "deadlines" are managed based on what we want our weeks and months to look like. The only thing that is expected from of each of us is open and frequent communication about progress and for planning weekly schedules.

It is important for us to regularly learn new things - especially from each other and our clients. We feel unlearning bad habits or ideas often can be as important, if not more. Whatever we work on, whether internal or external, we try and make sure that there is room for individual and collective growth. Challenging tasks are healthy as long as they don't stress us out.
