    Life @ Directi
  • Life @ Directi
    Work with Smart People
    “The best part about working at Directi is the people. Everyone is super-smart and super-intelligent. 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 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.”
  • 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.
  • Life @ Directi
    We do everything to make you productive
    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, device, software that can help us work better, is for the asking.
  • 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.
  • Life @ Directi
    An accessible, always-stocked snack bar, with goodies, fresh juices, and other treats takes care of my in-between meals munching needs.
  • Life @ Directi – Great Teams
    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”
