These include attention to detail, a hunger to learn new things, a belief in the team spirit while retaining your individuality, and an overall friendly and fun-loving temperament.

Which brings us to:

The Office and the Culture

We create amazing, useful, and overall beautiful plugins for WooCommerce (yes, we are nerds who will use the word ‘beautiful’ for software and are proud about it!). However, if you think you will be working with a drab team, a dull office, or an overall lethargic environment, think again. Days at Tyche are as fun as they are filled with some learning or another.

From long lunches to fortnightly book reading clubs and attending WordCamps as a team, from celebrating festivals with office games like Secret Santa to making use of online courses, there is always something happening. If it’s not that, then it’s a dart competition or an impromptu tea party.

Here are a few pictures from trips and events past:

The Hike-a-thon: At our 2018 annual retreat in Kodaikanal.
Another picture from Kodaikanal, this time from Chettiar Park.
Tring-Tring: Cycling together around the Kodai Lake.
Chogada times: Nine days of dance, garba, colours and fun.
Mid-day meals: Out for a team lunch.
Our food is here! Why else would we be smiling with our empty plates? At the team lunch.

More than one team-member has claimed that the fun-loving, friendly and ever-smiling team is the true strength of Tyche. Check out their testimonials here.

A little more about us

We like WordPress and WooCommerce. A lot. We have built six plugins for the latter, which includes the Abandoned Cart Pro, the Booking & Appointment plugin, the Order Delivery and Product Delivery Date plugin and the Deposits plugin, since we began in January 2012. In October 2018, we acquired five more.

When we are not working on making business easier for customers across the globe (literally. We have customers from the US, UK, Europe, India, Australia), we are busy speaking at and sponsoring WordCamps in the country.

A lot of us work remotely, and use Slack and Asana to communicate with each other and keep track of our tasks. You will find that company policy related to timings, leaves etc is flexible and lenient, within limits.
