Life @ Directi
Work with Smart People
“The best part about working at Directi is the
people. Everyone is super-smart and superintelligent. I learn something new everyday,
from everyone.”

Life @ Directi
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 geodistributed scalable environments. We get to work with
caching, Horizontal partitioning, Clustering, Distributed
Computing etc - technologies / concepts / tools that very
few companies work with.”

Life @ Directi
Open and Transparent Culture
Anyone in the organization at any level, any designation,
any management band, in any team can freely approach
anyone else at any level / team / designation to discuss
anything. Our Management actually reprimands us if we
bother knocking before entering their cabins.

At Directi we are super-obsessive about productivity. Every
employee in every department has multiple LCD monitors.
Our facilities team is always researching ergonomics as it
applies to lighting, seating, workstations etc. Any tool,

Life @ Directi
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.

Life @ Directi
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.

meals munching needs.

Life @ Directi – Great Teams
We spend extra time in making sure we

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”
