We are Playfully


work with us
what we value

Quick, not as in within a month, or a week, no. In a day, overnight. And not without due finesse haan :) It's the reality of any high growth startup. The team needs to be swift, think on the feet, learn and adapt quickly. When you are an innovator, you will realise that time and space begin to take a back seat, we love people who experience the state of flow when they work. 

Innovative environments are full of ambiguity and conflict. And hence, being transparent and authentic is critical. Plus, it's so much more fun working with people who keep their cards open :) At the heart of design thinking lies the ability to be your true self, we believe that each individual's authenticity enables innovative thought. 

Yes we value fresh ideas, but the mad passion to turn ideas into reality, even more so! Beg, borrow, steal; hustle through, and make it happen! We appreciate people who can take initiative and own up. All the great innovators in the world hustled in the beginning, they used what they had and created history. 

We love folks who are not just comfortable with, rather keen on working with people who have complementary skills and conflicting opinions. Folks who can survive thrive in a diverse team!

Have you heard of the slogan 'first time right'? Yeah, we don't believe in that. We like to try, learn from our mistakes, and keep improving. Not knowing is fine. But don't fear trying. Design thinking and innovation needs people to be open to ambiguity and exploration.
