With ambitious plans to build world-class software from Sri Lanka, Rootcode Labs very recently unveiled its new corporate headquarters in Colpetty, Colombo. Rootcode Labs is a spin-off from 01Tech with laser focus on providing digital product engineering services to businesses worldwide. 

Sri Lanka has been making a mark in the industry as a high end technology service provider over the last many years. The IT/BPM sector in the country is experiencing a significant surge in the recent years with more providers accessing emerging global markets with their world-class solutions. It is recognised as a thrust industry within the National Export Strategy (NES) with a goal of reaching $ 5 b revenue by year 2022, with over 200,000 skilled jobs and 1,000 startups.Rootcode Labs Founder and CEO Alagan Mahalingam, commenting on this, said: “We are extremely delighted to declare open our new state-of-the-art corporate office in Colombo which is home for some of the world’s best engineers.”

“Being in the industry for more than five years and building products that have been nominated as the best in Asia and Europe we foresee Rootcode Labs becoming an integral force in the Sri Lankan software industry and to be an important contributor to the Sri Lankan economy. With many challenging international projects coming onboard we are constantly on the lookout for talented individuals to join our team. If you become a rootcoder you’re our family for life.”The company’s solutions primarily include developing mobile applications using latest technologies such as React Native, Native iOS and Android; building robust web apps with backend scalable to millions of users; and providing consultancy and offshore teams that augment with its client’s team, bringing great software products to life.

Rootcode Labs even goes to the extent of building a small part of the desired software for free for first-time customers. The reason why the company invests in this is to give its clients an opportunity to see how great it is to work with them. From an idea through to planning and execution, the management and technical team works tirelessly to deliver and its clients are able to experience every bit of the development process through continuous progress meetings and feedback sessions.

Once the product is complete, Rootcode Labs runs it through rigorous internal and external testing using various devices and operating systems, before going live with a limited or full release. It doesn’t end here as the company also has a 24x7 support team for maintenance working across different time zones, ensuring clients don’t have to worry about anything else other than expanding their product horizons.

Promoted throughout the world as the ‘Island of Ingenuity’, the IT/BPM sector in Sri Lanka is highly attractive for many reasons and is one of the highest growth areas in the country’s economy with numerous companies producing world-class software products and services, making it one of the largest export segments.
