4Play Hires Only The Craziest And The Weirdest People

4Play Team Shirtless

When 4Play first moved its office to Manali (HP) – a hill station in the Himalayas, the thought behind it was to establish a unique and enviable workplace. This is why the company’s entire team lives together, plays together and indeed works together too. Mandatory holidays and a 4 hour work week are just some of the norms of this unorthodox organisation.

But what’s more amusing is 4Play’s hiring policies. The company delves little in the resume of a job applicant, and gives a lot more consideration to hiring weird people. Social misfits often make the cut quite easily. The adventure content startup believes that this keeps the space creative and ever so full of interesting ideas.

Check out their crazy lineup of team members.

Anuj Khurana: This 28 year old school dropout has traveled the country without a single penny in his pocket and recently survived 30 days only on coconut water. He is also a creative lead at 4Play and has graduated in screenplay writing from the prestigious Film and Television Institute of India.

Kshitij Gupta: One of the most low key guys on the team Kshitij has been an auditor by profession and holds a postgraduate degree in marketing. Despite his thorough academic credentials, he regularly surprises everyone by pulling off tricks like these:

Abhilash Mahajan: This tech wizard has a knack for challenges. He earns almost double his paycheck by winning bets placed with his colleagues; acing the most difficult and arduous of physically demanding tasks. Which often seem beyond his capabilities. This last winter, he climbed Khanpari Tibba, a 4000m peak, in hard snowy winter conditions. Going from base to top and back in less than 15 hours.

Shantanu Negi: If someone can keep a new year resolution, it is this guy. This digital marketer realised his lack of physical agility when he joined 4Play. Since then he quit consuming carbohydrates and skips 6000 counts on a daily basis.

Prashant Bhatt: This adventure filmmaker comes from an engineering background. Prashant manifests a strong learning by doing approach. Hence, he immerses himself fully into a sport before capturing it on camera. He climbed a 300 feet rock wall in Ladakh just to get the athlete’s perspective in a story.

Soumya Sahoo: An NIT graduate and architect by profession, Soumya quit a lucrative career in Mumbai to pursue his passion for bouldering and design. The only person who can pull all nighters, at the hoffice and report in time for the morning meetings; Sahoo is also a revered chef and carpenter.

Himanshu Aggarwal: Quitting jobs, going against the norm and building from scratch is routine for this successful entrepreneur and MICA alumnus. At 4Play Himanshu is the prime distraction that pulls people off their chairs to the badminton court, post lunch.

Utkarsh Mittal: One of 4Play’s first hires, Utkarsh pulls off and holds front levers even more smoothly than he handles the camera. Working from outside the hoffice most of the time, Utkarsh produces compelling images of the outdoors.

Boyer Debbarama: A skateboarder, rapper and filmmaker, Tyler packs diverse skills into one. Hailing from Tripura, he chose not to join college after school and explore the country’s various flavours. He currently resides at the 4Play hoffice and produces anime inspired cinematographs.
