    We are the only analytics firm among the top 10 Indian startups by Business Insider.

    Top 10 Indian startups that are going places

    India is increasingly seeing a host of ingenious startups. While some may say the startup bubble would burst soon, as long as the money's coming, the party's on. Business Insider India ranks the top 10 most promising Indian startup s. P.S: Flipkart and Snapdeal are excluded from the list as they're too big to be considered ' startup s' now.


Mu Sigma – Why Work For Us?

Analytics and data-driven decision making have the potential to drive distinct competitive advantage for companies. But those same firms are challenged to scale their use of analytics and make analytics integral to all business decisions. As the world’s largest pure-play decision sciences and analytics provider, Mu Sigma helps clients systematize decision support and analytics, and serves as catalyst for making the promise of Big Data real in large enterprises. We help 140 of the Fortune 500 traverse the journey from Data Engineering to Data Sciences and Decision Sciences, providing an integrated man-machine ecosystem of platform, processes, and people products.

We have a rich and unique system of platform, people and processes, including over 3500 decision scientists worldwide. To nurture a culture conducive to this ecosystem, we display a certain vibe – which are absolute paradoxes. This vibe catalyzes and scales the institutionalization of analytics and decision sciences in ours as well as our client environment.

For instance, we are geeky. And we think geeky is cool! We are proud of our math and engineering roots. After all, our company name stands for mean and standard deviation.

We are problem solvers and so we are methodical and deliberate about the work we do for our clients. But it’s also a vibrant work place where a lot of buzz and energy is palpable; one that is augmented by a flat organization structure.  

We are at once irreverent and humble. Irreverent towards the business problems we face, yet humble enough to know that we don’t possess all the answers. This is in line with one of our core beliefs of learning over knowing.

Meet our people to know more about us

Our people are part business analyst, part applied mathematician and part programmer. While most companies treat these as three separate roles, we view them as one – the decision scientists. The only problem, decision scientists cannot be readily found. And so we set up on recruiting them ourselves and then train them through our in-house Mu Sigma University.

At Mu Sigma University, we start with the basics of design thinking, Story boarding, and structured problem solving. This is followed by an intensive curriculum in analytics – univariate, bivariate, multi-variate, latent class analytics, Bayesian modelling, econometrics, various analytical tool. Then we sprinkle in business acumen, with what we like to call mini MBA for the quantitatively inclined. It’s a substantial investment – because the Decision Scientists is a critical part of our ecosystem.

Through MSU, we develop the right talent and wrap them in the bionics of our analytical processes and platform. It’s not man plus machine, but Man-Machine, the iron man we are talking about.

This could be probably your opportunity to be the brand. What Mu Sigma guarantees is rich experience, helping top brands – the Fortune 500 – solve tough business problems. You learn a great deal in the white hot field of Big Data analytics and decision science. And you will be part of that pursuit – pursuit of that higher purpose – that purpose being a new art of problem solving.

Work-life balance? Try work-life harmony. 

Balancing work and life at a high-growth analytics and decision sciences firm is never easy.  To us, it makes more sense to maintain a harmony between work and life. After all, can you ever turn off one or the other? Watch these short stories of how successful Mu Sigmans keep work and life in harmony.

    I have been working at Mu Sigma full-time (More than a year)


    Great Work Culture; Some of the smartest minds as peers; Flat hierarchy and accessibility of the leadership team; You can find more detail in my blog here :


    The place has a very startup like feel where you are often pushed to the edge of failure and get to learn a lot from that. The company believes in extreme experimentation and direct feedback and flat hierarchy which may not be for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    The company was built on great values and principles by often taking "The Road Not Taken" and that has made all the difference. You have to strive hard to keep that going.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Mu Sigma.


    5-6 Rounds in all 1. Aptitude test 2. Group Discussion 3. Video Synthesis 4. Technical round + Case Study 5. Technical Round 6. HR interview The overall process was 2 days, first day was only the aptitude test after which I was asked to come to their office and from step 2 to step 6, it took around 8-10 hours. All in all a good experience, all they check is how quickly you can learn and do you have the aptitude for the job since Anaytics is not taught in curriculum till now.
