If you walk into a cafe in Bangalore and shout, “Is anyone here an engineer?”, half the heads in there will turn your way.
Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration. But Bangalore is not known as the IT capital of the country for no reason.
The city has more than its fair share of IT wizards, and they ply their trade in some of India’s top IT companies spread all over Namma Bengaluru.
One area of Bangalore, in particular, has lots of IT companies to keep an eye on. Especially if you’re an engineer looking for a place to work in. And that’s Electronic City.
Here are some of the top names.
Even if you don’t work in Wipro yourself, someone or the other in your network might be. That’s because this IT powerhouse is one of the biggest recruiters in the country. As of now, they have two offices in Electronic City itself. It’s a great place to work since it gives its employees a lot of opportunities for growth (just check out the reviews of Glassdoor).

From its humble beginnings in 1981, Infosys has gone on to become a Fortune500 company. It’s a true Indian IT success story. And it can be a crucial chapter in your success story as well.

They have 90 offices across the globe, and the one in Electronic City, Bangalore, accepts walk-ins as well. So if you’re looking for a workplace with a good culture, just walk in.

Engineers in India have the stereotypical image of overworked folks sitting in front of their computer systems all-day-long. Hewlett-Packard, with its emphasis on work-life balance for its employees, is breaking that stereotype. They might be one of the biggest companies with hundreds of thousands of employees across the world, but they value each one of them.
