Careers at Newgen Software


Newgen Software’s mission is to transform businesses by innovatively connecting systems, processes, people, and things.

Founding story

Entrepreneur Diwakar Nigam and his colleague T.S. Varadarajan wanted to help businesses move towards paperless operations. So in 1992 they founded Newgen Software Technologies Limited, Nigam’s second company, in New Delhi, India. It was an IT firm that focused on Enterprise Content Management and Business Process Management. It began with a team of 20 engineers.

Newgen Software’s main goal was to create products that assisted smart imaging and document management applications. Its first significant contract involved licensing document processing software to Canon. By 1999 its software development team had grown to 250 engineers. By 2015 it had 600 employees operating out of India, the United States, Canada, Singapore, and the UAE.
