Building something GREAT is the goal.
- Ed Catmul, Creativity Inc.
We are purpleSlate - driven by passion, proven by results.
Often, the true value of an idea is not the idea itself. Rather, it is the intent or the WHY that led to the creation of it.
At purpleSlate, we are eternal optimists and we strongly believe the Future is as much about the exciting opportunities that lies ahead of us in leveraging technology to augment human capability, that helps solve some of the complex problems faced by the next billion. As machines become smarter, our abilities need to scale up the knowledge chain.
It is no longer on WHAT you build but, as much about HOW you build software.
Join a small team of engineers driven by a common goal to build great products and solutions.

What specific skills are you looking for?
If there is any interesting and cutting-edge technology available in the horizon, we will most likely be tinkering with it, as we constantly experiment and refine our approach to solve some interesting problems. Scroll down a bit to see the technologies that we are currently playing with.
In addition, we are also looking for folks with expertise in Test Automation, using tools like Selenium and creative people who are good at stuff like Content Writing and creating digital content, including Videos, and illustrations.
How can I join the purpleSlate team?
First of all, a Hearty Welcome if you have come this far and reading this.
We believe great talent and people can come from unlikely places. Most of us working in purpleSlate are testimony to that fact. Hence, we believe focusing on the person, their work, their interests and how they can help us is the most right way to bring the best talent.
We also believe, these days, you can't land a job just by submitting your resume. We really don't care where you studied or where you worked. We love to see your work - be it coding skills or anything else that you are endowed with and which you feel would add value to purpleSlate. So, share with us your Github repo or other stuff that you built and that you are proud of.
If you feel, you don't have anything that can be shared, (for multiple reasons), we respect that. Do let us know and we would be happy to have you work on one of our own projects for a very short time (2-4 weeks). In fact some of our colleagues interned with us for nearly 4-6 months before joining us. We would be more than happy to even pay you for your time.
Do you hire graduates who just passed out of college?
Yes, we do hire from campuses and we believe firmly in grooming our own talent from schools.
We hire people for not who they were; but more for who they could become. Hence, for that same reason we invest a good amount of our our time in curating our own talent from schools, that too not from the usual big name institutions (not that we don't like them). But, from any place that is as anywhere it can get. School pedigree, doesn't matter much to us.
Besides being good engineers, many of us are trying to be good teachers and mentors. We find nurturing untapped potential and setting them up on a good career path is far more fulfilling. It may take lots of patience to grow and nurture our own talent. But, we feel it is worth the effort it takes and we are proud to see the way some of our campus hires have grown with us to deliver some great work.
Our same hiring philosophy applies even for Campus Hires. Before you shoot out an email, do remember to share your Github profile or other work that you are proud of. Let your work speak more than your resume and certificates.
So, what next?
You can reach us at email@example.com If you share your work, we guarantee that we respond within a day or two if we find your profile to be suitable for us. Or, if you know of anyone who be a great fit for any of these roles, please do let us know or spread the message.
