About Us

We are a Product Engineering company. We specialize in building innovative products from ideation to development. We are not a typical IT services company and don’t do support and maintenance projects! Founded by an ex-Googler (or Xoogler) in 2009, we have created a niche for ourselves by leveraging the most exciting technologies in AI/ML, Cloud, DevOps, IIoT, and more. Our people have a fantastic time upskilling and working on them.

We have an enviable list of customers, including Facebook, Oracle, Siemens, Roche, Medtronics, and several exciting startups. Our projects are typically innovation-driven. For instance, we are building an AI platform to personalize cancer treatment by analyzing  genealogy data. Work can’t get more impactful than this!

We have a 4.7 rating on Glassdoor!

What’s more, did you know that we have spun off several exciting product AI and RPA companies like PipeCandy and element5? Our spin-offs operate from the same office and present unique opportunities to the challenge-hungry. So when you join Ideas2IT, you actually open up a whole new world of possibilities!

  • If there is a certain technology you would like to explore, you can do your Technical PoCs
  • Work in a culture that values capability over experience and continuous learning as a core tenet

If you have the relevant experience, great! Otherwise, it isn’t all that matters. We believe in hiring people for their IQ and the right attitude, over ready-made skills.
