We are an eclectic crew united by intellectual curiosity and a passion for great work.
You are a disciplined geek at heart and want an opportunity to become the best-in-class at what you are supposed to do.
Net producers – Certain people are better suited at creating than others. When you watch cricket, movies, etc. you are consuming things created by others. We prefer hiring people who are net creators, people who create for fun. To create something useful, you need to have deeply thought about the world around you.
Specialization and then generalization – Have you spent enough time mastering one thing? Specialization takes time, focus, and stability. It cannot be achieved by those who keep changing jobs or domains or passions every two years.
You see your skill as a means to an end – We see ourselves as problem solvers. Our other identities — engineers, designers, entrepreneurs, researchers, copywriters — are a means to an end. In fact, we believe software is no different from other skills like carpentry and sculpting.
Polyglot – You are not scared of picking up new skills.
When our first hire quit, he was immediately picked up by a well-funded startup. His salary before and after pykih grew by 3.75x within 1.5 years. Since then, most pykih alumni have seen financial growth from 1.4x to 8x.
Our alumni have joined firms like Fractal Analytics, Embibe, Wikimedia Foundation. Others started their own companies and even got into MBA and MS programs at IVY League Schools in the US.
Education cred does not matter – We do not hire based on who you are or where you have come from (degrees from fancy colleges). Instead, we hire based on where you are headed. We find young professionals with strong fundamentals, work ethic, and hunger to build.
Loan to buy Macbooks – We offer an interest-free loan to purchase a Macbook or a laptop of your choice.
Work where you want – We are headquartered in New Delhi, but our team is spread across 4 cities. Everyone at Pykih is free to live and work in the places they thrive, and most of us do just that.
Maker’s schedule – Daily, we strive to have at least two, 3-hour, deep-work sessions. During this time, all coordination is stopped to avoid disturbance.
Work-life balance – We believe in work-life balance. We do not work on evenings, nights and Sundays.
