Directi is #1 in 2018 LinkedIn Top Companies List

According to an article published on LinkedIn yesterday, Directi has been named the #1 company on the 2018 LinkedIn Top Companies in India list. This list is comprised of companies that have offices in India where professionals would most like to work, “based on the actions of LinkedIn’s more than 546 million professionals (over 47 million in India alone).” Here’s how the list was determined:

“The Top Companies list is based on the billions of actions taken by LinkedIn members and looks at four main pillars: interest in the company, engagement with the company’s employees, job demand and employee retention.”

Directi was found by Divyank Turakhia and Bhavin Turakhia, and the company was acquired by Endurance International Group in a 9 figure deal. From what I understand, co-founder Bhavin stayed on board, and I believe he still works with the company. Directi operates a number of domain industry companies such as Big Rock and Radix. The LinkedIn article notes that the global headcount at Directi is “more than 1,500.”

Some of the other notable companies on the list of 25 that ranked lower than Directi include:

  • Amazon
  • Alphabet
  • KPMG
  • Adobe
  • GE
  • PWC
  • Goldman Sachs
  • Shell
  • Unilever

Considering the name recognition of the other global companies on the list, this is quite an accomplishment. Not only does the company seem to continue to be successful, but they are also attracting talent that will help it grow. Interestingly, Amazon was the top company in the US.

  1. Directi is still owned by the brothers afaik.

    They sold a few divisions like ResellerClub & LogicBoxes etc to Endurance and Media.Net to a Chinese company.

    The two divisions they’re currently marketing aggressively are Radix and Flock.
