hard work




a leap year

2018 was a big, impactful, breakout year full of growth for us at Darwinbox.

We almost doubled in size, bagged some hefty awards, solved a stack of HR problems with technology, added a few more glossy feathers (clients) to our cap, made some big bets on product, events and team members - and learned a hell lot.

So to honour this incredible year, and gather for a little celebration, we’ve put together some of the favourite things we did in 2018.


We permeated into every single element of your life.

From the medicines that treat you (Dr. Reddy's, Emcure, Aurobindo) to the media you consume (Times Group, TVF, HT Media), the water (Bisleri) & food (Swiggy, Licious) you can’t do without, the clothes you wear (Arvind Group, Myntra), the products you order online (Urban Ladder, Paytm) to even how they get delivered to your doorstep (Delhivery, Rivigo) - we are everywhere.

“Times Internet’s vision was always to build a work environment that fosters innovation, productivity and collaboration. With Darwinbox, we were able to drive our vision, by having a single source of truth, a strong employee data infrastructure and analytics to make informed decisions.”

We were relentlessly and obsessively customer-centric.

From the Voicebot that minimises time to action by more than half, to the New Dashboard that is even more simple and intuitive than the last; the Help Desk, New Reports Modules, Mobile Referrals, AI-based Recruitment Stack Ranking are only some of the many cool things our entire Engineering and Customer Success Teams spent countless nights cracking and delivering to our clients!
