pykih is a 5+ year old information design agency. We design and build purpose-designed interfaces on top of data and content to facilitate understanding of complex topics, make people better at what they do, and solve relevant problems. Our software has been used by 70+ brands from across 7 countries. These include Microsoft, FirstPost, UNDP, Oxfam India, NarendraModi, ICICI Lombard, Fusion Charts, etc.
We hire young, hungry talent and transform them into highly focused, multi-disciplinary creators who can problem solve using design, data and algorithms. Typically after 2-3 years at pykih, our ex-employees see 1.5x-8x financial growth in their subsequent jobs, join leading companies like Fractal Analytics, Embibe, Wikimedia Foundation, found their own company and one even got into Yale’s MBA program (Ivy League School).
From March 2017 until August 2018, we were implementing a product discovery contract for ICFJ.org (Washington DC-based International Centre for Journalists). The product discovered eventually got hived off as an independent company — PROTO and our co-founder and a majority of our team moved to PROTO. We are now restarting pykih ground up from Delhi as a women-first (50%+ female workforce) technology, design, and content studio.
