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.

How can I join Purpleslate?

We hire people for not who they were; but more for who they could become

About Us

Send an email to hello@purpleSlate.com or pick a time to reach our team. We would be more than happy to assist.

Just like any startup, we had our humble beginnings, starting with a team of two members (the co-founders) and today we are a passionate team of 100+.

We are a technology startup based out of Chennai, India. We are located at a quiet campus in one of the prime technology centers in Chennai. You can find us here. https://goo.gl/maps/cGJ53NHUfij8yLXR9 

I know, you would ask this. So, it goes like this. As per the color theory, the color Purple indicates all things good and positive in life. And, as a company we at purpleSlate sincerely believe in continuous learning and sticking to the basics and the same logic applies to machines, as AI goes mainstream. As many of the Indians might know, Slate, is one of the very first learning instruments we are exposed to in life. Hence the name purpleSlate. I know, it sounds a bit too much. But, we seriously meant it.

Good question. So, it goes like this. As per the color theory, the color Purple indicates all things good and positive in life. And, as a company we at purpleSlate sincerely believe in continuous learning and sticking to the basics. As many of the Indians might know, Slate, is one of the very first learning instruments we are exposed to in life. Hence the name purpleSlate. I know, it sounds a bit too much. But, we seriously meant it.

What else can I tell you? Hmm. Let me think. The company was founded on 2nd Jan 2017 and has had an incredible growth journey since them. Almost every year we have added new team members, moved into a new, larger office space, which means we have been very much profitable as well. We really believe you can do great things, quietly.

Good question. We are a bunch of geeks and we solve challenging industry problems leveraging modern day digital technologies. We specialize on Language Interfaces and Conversational AI. Not a far fetched claim; we feel (almost) any problem can be codified and we are up for it.

Careers

Very simple. Is your answer predominantly YES to all of these? Then, say Hello at people@purpleslate.com

I like solving problems.
I am good at creating things.
I can write beautiful code.
I am passionate about technology.
I like working in small teams.
I am a quick learner.
I want to leave an impact.

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.

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.

Of course, yes. We always believe anytime is a great time to welcome great talent. Say Hello at people@purpleslate.com Or, to make it very simple, share with us your Github repo or other stuff that you built and that you are proud of.

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.

Conversational AI

While the vendor Speech and Language Understanding Services are good with regular English vocabulary, the biggest challenge for enterprises to achieve reliable and predictable accuracy levels is in handling specialized vocabulary in their own domain, its usage in day-to-day operations by their staff. As an example, think of the medical vocabulary, the drug names, medical conditions or the various part-names in an automobile company. How would your chatbot respond to dialogs with medical terms like Cutaneous, thorax, glossopharyngeal, ventroflexion, Annealing, Austentization? That’s what we call as domain specific vocabulary and it is very important for your Conversational AI application to have a deep maturity in language understanding on this vocabulary.

Garbage In – Garbage Out is very much a possibility in the case of Natural Language Understanding (NLU), because if we don’t process the text correctly, we will end up getting unwanted and irrelevant results from our applications and systems. It is not an easy task for machines to understand the language humans speak and the way we communicate. It is the nature of the human language that makes it difficult.

Smart Transcription focuses more on the Understanding part and achieving higher levels of accuracy in that.

Our customers come from diverse industries, but we have deep expertise building applications in Banking, Insurance, Healthcare, Petcare, Engineering, Education.

Awesome. We would be happy to show you our wares. Please pick a time here.

From the earliest days of the invention of computers, one of the fundamental question that has driven their evolution is how would the humans interact with the devices? To perform a computation, to get an answer or to get things done? So much so that, the digital screens across all form factors have taken over our lives. There is almost a screen for anything we do in our life. On the other side, Conversations is in the middle of everything we do and human language is one of the most primal skill. With the ever increasing ability of computers and devices to understand the language we speak, there is no better way and no better time than to reimagine the way we built interfaces – in the language we speak.

Ha, ha. Good question. We call it as ‘Get over the BOT hangover’. Not that we have a prejudice against any of the chatbots of today. As much as the chatbots have become so ubiquitous today, the user experience of many of these chatbot implementations are far from desirable. It is our earnest goal to help improve the user experience and make the chatbot more useful. You can more about it here.

It depends. While our low-code platform accelerators help you with the desired time to market and get your conversational AI solution up and running in no time, there are other factors that affect the implementation costs. We would be more than happy to demystify the costs and please reach us here. One of the purpleHead would be happy to assist soon.

Good question. You can find the answer here.

We do have quite a bit of interesting solutions delivered for many of our customers across the globe. Please schedule a demo here and we would be happy to share some of our success stories with our customers.

We are always on the lookout for GREAT talent.

Anytime is a great time to welcome great talent
