Introduction: Srijan Technologies is a 18+ year-old technology services firm. For a large part of its life, Srijan has specialised in building content management systems with expertise in PHP-based open-source CMS’, specifically Drupal. In recent years Srijan has diversified into i) Data Engineering using NodeJS and Python, ii) Data Science -- Analytics and Machine Learning and iii) API Management using APIGEE. Srijan is approx 400 people. Srijan’s development offices in India are located in New Delhi, Gurugram, Goa, Bangalore and Mumbai, Delhi, Gurgaon, and Goa are the largest offices. In addition, a few developers & delivery leads are located in several countries globally -- USA (New York, Charlotte), Singapore, Philippines (Manila), Australia (Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne), Germany (Berlin), Japan (Tokyo). In each of these countries, Srijan has a functional legal subsidiary.

Srijan works largely with enterprises or mid-large sized global firms and focuses on recurring business from these accounts, thereby bringing much-needed predictability of revenue for high-growth companies. It works with several top brands at the moment.

The firm is beginning to invest in startups and in joint research projects with top institutes. For instance, it recently partnered with IIT-Delhi to invest in an 18-month project for building a solution for ‘Honey traceability using Blockchain’.

The leadership team at Srijan has set itself an audacious goal of reaching $25 million in revenue (while maintaining healthy EBITDA margins) in FY 2020 -- doubling our revenues. This requires significant technology and delivery leadership bandwidth to be created in the firm to ensure our high-quality standards are not compromised.

Each year Srijan donates 7% of its profits to Srijan Foundation Trust a registered non-profit which runs several projects including non-formal schools (directly or via partner organizations) and Indic civilizational projects such as #SrijanTalks.


Srijan’s team of enterprise Drupalists are helping our customers build cutting-edge web experiences, migrate to Drupal, tune and improve their Drupal implementations, and advise on all things Drupal and web architecture.

With the rapid adoption of Drupal as a web platform, and with our growing number of technical development projects supporting our clients and partners, our Technical Architects are in high demand. They consult remotely or travel on-site periodically to work with some of the most talented technologists and some of the hottest web properties on leading-edge web development projects.

Engagements vary by customer and can include anything from custom coding and mentoring of partner and client teams to application design and ongoing guidance on architecture through development and application launch.
