  • Sarath Kumar TG

    In these two years at Soliton, I have been on a steep learning curve developing automation software infrastructure for semiconductor chip validation. The opportunities that I got in Soliton has uncovered some of my hidden potential and I very happy with the recognition that I have received. As a CSR coordinator for the Coimbatore office, I get much satisfaction from getting together with a lot of Solitons to make a small difference in areas that are close to our hearts. What makes Soliton stand out in my mind is the inspiring culture, absence of hierarchy, clear and transparent operations, timely recognition and importance given to each and every individual.

  • Ezhil Selvi K

    Soliton has been an inspiration to bring out the best in me every day for over the past nine years! Here, I see that culture is not that statement on a wall poster or a policy document, but it is in the way we do every single thing – be it big or small, impactful or not. From the way we trust our colleagues, the way we clean up our table after lunch, the way we freely walk up to any one’s desk with a question or an idea, the way we want to find sustainable solutions to problems, to the way we step up to take responsibility and never point fingers.

  • Karthik Abiram

    My journey with Soliton, which began four years ago has been very fulfilling and enriching. I have had the satisfaction of working on interesting and innovative projects for companies like Texas Instruments, Freescale Semiconductor, and Cirrus Logic. To my surprise, I got involved in complex projects immediately after the initial training program and I was soon participating in customer meetings and sharing my ideas! Due to the kind recognition and due to the atmosphere of camaraderie that I experience everyday, Soliton is definitely my dream job.
