"The best minds of my generation are thinking about how to make people click ads" – Hammerbacher (quote)

Nobody is designing technology for the Base of the Pyramid (BoP) -- the poor. BoP technology needs to be intuitive, fast, responsive apps that work in spite of connectivity challenges – requiring the same kind of engineering prowess as that of a Facebook Engineer.  We want to democratize developing technology, making it easy and economical. We want everyone to be able to build applications and create impact. We think JavaScript is the solution.

Artoo ♥ Impact


  • Do what you are best at: build great apps! Field visits, prototypes, iterate, deploy…and repeat. Take ownership of the entire process from start to finish.
  • Build powerful, realtime, intuitive, engaging, productivity apps. Think dashboards like Balanced's
  • Integrated mobile payments (already done!), Aadhaar and other such services to our platform.
  • Build advanced user functionality with code editors like Ace where the user can create JS snippets to call internal APIs to tweak the product. Also, help secure this powerful feature. 
  • Enhance the APIs and framework and open it to developers
  • Contribute to Open Source: We have forked TouchDB-Android and ported Lucene to Android as TouchDB-Android-Lucene. You will help maintain these and create/fork many others.
  • Learn, work on the entire stack. Teach. Build a team. 


We believe the best kind of imagination and innovation happen in lively environments where everyone is free to be himself or herself and follow their hearts. We believe in freedom with responsibility: speaking our minds, keeping our promises, and being intellectually curious.

At Artoo, the world is your oyster. We encourage everyone on our team to go on field visits, attend client meetings, meet with investors, take online courses, attend conferences, workshops, hack nights, meetups, and happy hours.

We're looking for the best and brightest minds. Everyone on our team sits in on our weekly reviews and is privy to the inner workings of the company and free to make thoughtful and passionate pitches to influence how we move forward. And, of course, we have stock options.
