Our People

We Hire Attitude & Not Skills

  • Overview
  • Our People

Overview

We've found that unlearning is a difficult process for human beings. This is because it requires a rare attitude, and you seldom find such resources. So, we generally don't hire older people or people with a lot of experience. It takes half the time to make them unlearn the old ways and accept our new methods.

We hire engineers and MBA graduates from top B-schools and provide them with three years of hands-on digital work experience. This gives them exposure to many industries and the opportunity to learn new skills. We also get them exposure to Indian and international markets.

What Makes The Digital Fellow Different

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic five typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

Punit Modhgil

What role can technology play in India's development? Can we build the next Microsoft or Google or Facebook from India? How will India leverage the power of Online to build inclusion, improve governance and power up growth over the next 10 years? How is the function of marketing changing with the exacting demands of fast growth businesses in India?



My time is spent ideating on these thoughts, to try and develop new business models. The lines are blurring (offline-online, ATL-BTL, consumer-enterprise, demand-brand, global-local, sales-marketing-service) and it's an exciting time as we build towards the next level of growth in India.



In my earlier avatars my teams have built business (led marketing for the largest software business in India covering Enterprise & Public Sector), launched new products (category leading CRM products at companies like Oracle-US, Siebel-US and Talisma-India), contributed towards policy making (served on the advisory board of the first Parliamentary Committee in India on National Information Infrastructure-1996 which led to the creation of Ministry of IT) and built the largest public engagement campaigns in India (JanLokPal in 2011).



My internet journey started in India is 1996 with NIIT by adopting internet for education delivery and as a learning platform for its clients/consumers. My fascination for online continues- through 2011 where we used the power of social and online for Janlokpal movement or with octane.in, which since 2009 is actively spearheading India's opt-in movement for multi-channel marketing and meaningful engagement.

Our early success, has already started motivating the news industry of India, to adopt digital subscriptions, which has potential to help the newspapers of our country to flourish in the digital age and also avoid the fate that newspaper have witnessed in other developed economies of the world.

About my career, before The Hindu, I have experience of over 25 yrs, wherein I have been mostly associated with News and EdTech. Before joining The Hindu, I had worked on building subscription business for EdTech start-ups for about six years.

I started my digital journey in 1997, when internet was just making its presence felt in the world and Google was yet not launched, since then, I have worked with five startups, to learn the art and science of building businesses. My experiments with digital subscription, started in 2012, which was about one year after NY Times launched its digital subscriptions and when digital subscriptions were still in early stages of development, since then, I am learning this evolving field, that is now widely being adopted by various industries including Publishing, FMCG, CD, Software, Fitness, Education, Apparel, Entertainment etc

My expertise lies in transforming legacy businesses to digital and in scaling up businesses.
