Pioneers Of The Journey
Launched in 2007, ixigo is the brainchild of Aloke Bajpai and Rajnish Kumar, who drive the organization with innovations and an out of the box approach. They were joined by many others along the way who now form the backbone of ixigo. Our team comprises of a passionate bunch of techies, product folks, content curators, marketing gurus and creative designers. What binds us, you ask? Our love for travel and creating the best products in the travel space.
Monday Blues – What?
We are stern believers of the fact that happy employees = happy users! At ixigo, work and fun go hand in hand. We make sure everyone takes ownership of their work and gets equal opportunity. From an office space that consists of a room designed like a ‘train compartment’ and a ‘chai tapri’, we take our love for the office space quite seriously.
Whoever said Monday is the worst day of the week or there are no free lunches in life never visited the ixigo office. From a free hot lunch everyday to regular office events, hackathons and obviously the ‘occasional’ party, we make sure work never weighs us down.
