We understand that creative people are not in great numbers. The Creative field itself is limited and have handful of professionals who might know each other as well (the organized sector in this field is small) therefore if someone is open to work in mobile industry (which is currently growing at a fast pace in India) this opportunity can be really great for any creative guy to grow in his/her career graph. Not only growth opportunities, the company has strong ‘value’ and ‘professionalism’ and thus provides a healthy ‘work environment’.
