Company culture

Infosys started with its roots in education and learning, so it’s no surprise that a shared trait among employees is the embrace of life-long learning.

“Our training infrastructure back in India is the largest by any corporate across the world,” said Ravi Kumar S., the President of Infosys. “We can house 11,000+ people currently, do training and equip them with skills of the future…that is what makes this company so unique and so world-class.”

Infosys is now bringing their work in training and extending capability sets to the United States with its Technology and Innovation Hub efforts. The company has set up Technology and Innovation hubs in the United States in the following cities:

  • Hartford, Connecticut
  • Indianapolis, Indiana
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • Providence, Rhode Island
  • Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Richardson, Texas

“That to me is the defining philosophy or the defining roots of what this firm is all about,” Kumar said. “We are so aptly positioned in this new digital age because life-long learning is so critical.”

What the Infosys President says it takes to get hired

“One of the most important behavioral traits we see is an individual’s ability to unlearn and relearn,” Kumar said.

Infosys looks for this trait in potential employees because technology moves at such a rapid pace, so often employees will have to forget something they once learned so that they can master a new piece of technology.

Additionally, the company looks for a candidate’s ability to work in teams and have a shared purpose. Collaboration and passion for a purpose are important because the company constantly runs with cross-functional teams.

Funding and acquisitions

The company raised $200 million in a Post-IPO Equity round raised on July 10, 2008, with Chrys Capital as the lead investor.

Infosys has acquired 13 organizations, with the most recent being Eishtec on Oct. 9.
