“One of the factors towards learning is to fail and fail fast. We encourage our employees to learn from their mistakes; rather being afraid to admit it in fear of disciplinary action. We ensure that, an individual’s role, potential and future success is not affected by failure, instead they are empowered to grow with the same and learn from their mistakes,” proudly says Narasimha Reddy, Founder & CEO, Dumadu Games that encourages employees to innovate, fail, learn and grow. Incepted in 2010, Dumadu Games is a leading cross platform game development company, which creates top-notch games for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows, Blackberry and Mac Desktop applications.

With an employee-friendly culture, the company doesn’t impose any restrictions on the work timings, but expect employees to take better decisions in the best interests of the clients and the company. The company also provides a gym where the employees can shed their stress. Employee-friendly comprehensive HR policies ensure better employee-engagement and work satisfaction.

Counting several success stories to its name, Dumadu is looking forward not only to diversify into new technology and game domain, but also to be a flagship company in mobile gaming domain.
