Absolutdata – Why Work For Us?

We aim to transform the way global companies make decisions. We do this with advanced analytics products and services that fuse technology, data and analytics to give our clients a competitive edge.

Since 2001 we’ve connected data to business results for clients across the globe. During this time, we have amassed a powerful suite of advanced analytics products and services with an emphasis on marketing, customer and sales analytics.

Operating on the forefront of new technologies, we’ve seen clients exceed their own expectations when we deploy the latest big data techniques, machine learning, artificial intelligence and Internet of Things analytics. Clients gain a deeper understanding of the internal and external dynamics that impact their business every day.

A powerful philosophy has become part of our DNA. There is the traditional way to approach analytics, and the Decision Engineering way, which upends traditional thinking. The biggest difference is the magnified impact you get with Decision Engineering.

The Absolutdata Decision Engineering Methodology™ is a proven, disciplined approach that changes the way companies leverage their data. We take a holistic approach to provide quantified decision options based on each client’s unique business situation. Over the last 17 years we’ve worked with hundreds of business problems, delivered thousands of projects and created $8 billion in value for our clients.

The new technologies and architectures that have emerged over the last decade have re-written what’s possible in the world of marketing, sales and customer analytics. This constant evolution lights our passion and drives us to new innovations.


The delicious sense of accomplishment from shutting down your laptop after an intensely productive day—that feeling keeps us forging ahead. We don’t always go home at 6, but we always go home happy.

At Absolutdata, we want you to grow your skills as you work with industry leaders and top brands, helping them leverage data to make better decisions and achieve extraordinary results. Our holistic Learning & Development framework coupled with the opportunities enables employees as a part of the Absolutdata family to constantly innovate, partner with clients and deliver measurable impact. We aim to provide accelerated learning for our employees with comprehensive Training sessions. We start with induction training to familiarize the team member with our processes/techniques and then evolve into ongoing on-the-job training that covers functional and soft skills development.

We’ve created an environment where you can be proud of the work you do. Our solutions inject passion and creativity into the data science industry. That’s why we take risks, try out new things, and stay curious.

Absolutdata is a team of highly-driven, razor-sharp people who love to work hard and know how to have fun. We are decision engineers by day and Spanish-learners, musicians and gourmet chefs by night. If there’s one thing that distinguishes us, it is our thirst for challenge.

When we aren’t playing with analytics and addressing multilayered business problems, you’ll find us making an impact upon varied sectors and generating large volumes of unadulterated fun.

Absolutdata’s success ultimately relies on brilliant and knowledgeable minds and the Absolutdata Challenge represents the high standard of performance which is expected from the employees. To attain this standard, employees must demonstrate the following values:

  • Willingness to Learn
  • Passionate and driven to work
  • Agility and adaptiveness
  • Skilled to work on highly challenging, complex and fast paced projects
  • Experience to deal with high grade business problems across technical and business domains
  • Uphold our core corporate values

As the world influences shapes us, so can we shape it in turn. Absolutdata is committed to make the world a better place, in our own small way.
Our key Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives:

1. Child Education

We work with an NGO named 'Udayan Care', which provides quality care to disadvantaged children and women. This program includes the following activities:

  • Supporting child education
  • Conducting extra-curricular activities like yoga, music, theater, cricket, photography and foreign languages
  • Raising funds by the sale of products
  • Activities are planned to take children out for excursions and educational tours.

2. Healthcare

Events like “Blood Donation Camps” are organized in collaboration with the Rotary Club.

3. Support to the Underprivileged

We work in association with GOONJ, an NGO involved in making creative and optimum use of waste material as a resource to support the less privileged. Collection drives are organized on regular basis to encourage employees to contribute their used clothes, footwear, stationary items, etc. which can be recycled and subsequently used by the underprivileged.

4. Stray Dog Welfare

For this cause, we support Sai Ashram, an NGO working for the cause of animal welfare. As a part of our initiative, we aim to create public awareness about the plight of stray dogs. Through these awareness camps, we try to raise funds to help the NGO conduct sterilization drives and support their canine needs.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Absolutdata in May 2013.


    My interview process consisted of 4 phone interviews and one on site interview. The phone interviews were behavioral based with a recruiter, the Global HR manager, and the EVP. They were pretty straight forward. The on site interview was with their CEO which was a technical interview
