iRage follows a culture of delegation of ownership and responsibilities (while providing guidance & mentorship at each step) - enabling people to learn while building.

Trust & Transparency

Trust, openness, transparency, honesty, and candour are the cornerstones of our culture. We are unwavering in our commitment to truthfulness, prioritizing accuracy over business gain. Our aim is to foster an environment where trust among colleagues is paramount. This trust flourishes when we collectively uphold open and transparent communication.

Camaraderie & Mentorship

Our team comprises individuals with diverse and invaluable skills, each critical to our collective success. Our triumph is intertwined with the success of our team. We embrace mentorship, recognizing the importance of sharing our expertise and learning from one another. We are dedicated to fostering a work environment that is not only productive but also enjoyable.


We encourage radical open-mindedness, an insatiable curiosity for new ideas, concepts, and perspectives. We urge everyone to ask questions, no matter how basic they may seem, as ignorance is only dispelled through inquiry. Curiosity extends to exploring the broader implications of events, seeking a deeper understanding of the higher order consequences.

Aim for Excellence

Our pursuit of excellence entails an unyielding commitment to probe and investigate anomalies. Delving deep into the 0.001% outlier examples often leads to 'aha' moments, uncovering nuanced insights about the markets that elude surface scrutiny. We emphasize depth over breadth, encouraging thorough exploration.

Build for Scalability

We advocate building with scalability in mind from project inception. Design solutions that empower others to build upon existing foundations rather than starting from scratch. Centralize solutions in a repository, fostering continual sophistication upon the existing framework. Scalability is our foundation.

Accountability & Ownership

Initiative, end-to-end ownership, and going the extra mile define our culture of accountability and ownership. We empower individuals to take the lead, regardless of their position in the organizational hierarchy. Modules are owned by those who are intimately familiar with their design and evolution, promoting autonomy and responsibility in decision-making. We value leadership from every corner of our organization.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, our normally code-crunching developers and number-savvy traders magically transform into the cricketing legends Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni! It's like a sports sorcery takes over, and suddenly, we trade our keyboards for cricket bats after the clock strikes closing time! Boundaries are hit, laughter rolls, and the spirit of the game scores big time!  #FromCodeToCricket #WorkHardPlayHarder


Our annual offsite to Phuket was like a double shot of excitement - we jet-set to Phuket, where we soaked up the sun at a resort, spiked some epic volleyball serves, rode waves like pros in kayaks, dared the skywalk through the jungle, did some temple trotting, and even managed to shop 'til we dropped at the local market! 


Our night camp in Bhandardara, Igatpuri, was a mesmerizing escape where the team reveled in the simple joys of tent living by the lakeside, under a star-studded sky. Sharing local cooked meals, embarking on a magical jungle walk to witness fireflies illuminating the night, and gathering around a warm bonfire for a soulful guitar session by a talented colleague, the experience felt like a celestial convergence of nature and camaraderie.


Much like a dynamic trio of weekdays, where Tuesdays and Thursdays pump up our physical prowess, Friday evenings take center stage for a fabulous brain workout! As the sun sets on the workweek, our poker showdown kicks off, and let's just say, it's a game so gripping that the clock often dances past the midnight hour, leaving us all thoroughly entertained. So, join us in embracing the magnetic charm of Fridays, where cards, camaraderie, and a dash of midnight intrigue await!


iRage arranged an exciting Flamingo safari for observing the magnificent birds that visit Mumbai's shores every year. Our team went on a safari to witness the breathtaking sight of numerous flamingos, creating a special bond with the vibrant beauty of nature.


After shaking off a 2-year lockdown, our craving for office adventures was real! We decided to start with a breezy trek to Sanjay Gandhi National Park, bright and early, with our fantastic team. As we wandered, we discovered how we'd been missing out on the tiny miracles of nature all around us. Our guide turned into a nature detective, revealing elusive insects and crafty reptiles, absolute masters of blending in. It was an enlightening and side-splitting escapade that taught us to embrace the untamed secrets of the great outdoors!
