Be part of Projects that have global impact

“I love the challenges we face at Directi. Most of our applications cater to millions of users. One of our products delivers 20+ billion ad impressions per year. All applications are deployed on multi-homed clustered geo-distributed scalable environments. We get to work with caching, Horizontal partitioning, Clustering, Distributed Computing etc - technologies / concepts / tools that very few companies work with.”

We Work Hard, We Play Harder!

My Friday nights are reserved for network gaming - and counter-strike is the flavor of the month. Additional activities include interest groups such as the trekking group, a movie club, a cricket league, a soccer league etc.

Flexible working hours

We are a creative organization with creative people, and I believe creativity does not start and end with an alarm clock. The best software engineers I know have their high days and low days, and flexible working hours account for this quirk.

We spend extra time in making sure we

hire the RIGHT people, so we don’t have to spend time in making sure the job gets done RIGHT

“We believe the best part of working at Directi is the people. Directi is very picky about people. We went through a gruelling 5 hour interview process which went all the way up to the management before we were selected.

The result – an amazing team that We love working with”
