The Team

Our team has played a pivotal role in scripting our success. We believe in equal opportunities for everyone, making it a perfect combination of more than 25 years of experience driven with young and talented minds.

The Culture

The culture at Soft Corner is what differentiates us from others. It is this innate sense of belonging in our organisation that has resulted in more than half the team being with us for more than 10 to 15 years with us. We enjoy working with each other and for our customers!

Eternal Startup

With more than 25 years of operational experience, our motivation lives on and we still are excited to come to work every Monday!


As most of our business comes in by word-of-mouth publicity, we bend over backwards to support our customers – and no one shirks their responsibility where that is concerned.

Voice for All

We have designations only for convenience – and because the world needs them. With a very flat organization structure, any new colleague has as much say in the organization as any old one. To put it in a single sentence – we are friends who work together!

Our share of fun

As we know each other – and their families - by first name, we also go for picnics and parties with families! We even volunteer for some NGOs as a group – as we believe in common values. This is what binds us together.
