The management focuses on three things: Multi-disciplinary workforce, diversity (gender and technical background) and mix of early talent and experienced talent. One of the things that the company focuses on is the right balance between early talent like graduates, or people with one or two years of experience and experienced talent who have been with the company for some time. Lately, the company has adopted the Design Thinking approach, which requires multi-disciplinary people to come together to understand a problem and solve it.
