Careers at Exilant Technologies


Exilant seeks to optimise the corporate and administrative operations of its commercial and institutional client base through the provision of various information technology services and software solutions.

Founding story

Exilant was founded in 2004 by seven former Infosys employees, including current senior executives Vasudeva Rao (“Rao”) and Rangarajan Narasayan (“Narasayan”). The Company was initially incorporated under the name Exilant Consulting Private Limited, and sought to provide information technology services to commercial and institutional clients.

The Company expanded its operations quickly, notably acquiring FiSofex shortly after its foundation, opening its first international office in London in 2006. This was followed a year with the launch of the Company’s Singapore office.

Exilant has since diversified its service offerings to include software solutions and robotic process automation services. The Company took on its current name in 2009 to reflect the broadening of its service offerings.

Exilant has received a number of industry awards and recognitions in India. It has grown to employ a global workforce of approximately 1200 employees, and has an international network of offices that includes locations in India, Switzerland, the UK, the US, and Singapore.
