What’s the Opportunity?

This is more than a technical role, you’ll be a creative product and technical contributor. You’ll use your experience to inform our engineering process and decisions when building new features and ensuring scalability and availability of the entire platform.

You’ll be part of our product team which is multidisciplinary with design, frontend and backend engineering combined. While specialization is important, we discourage pigeonholing. Our most effective people work across design and implementation, making the right technology decisions to build the best product.

What will you be doing?

  • Develop technical plans and Contribute to our technical architecture as we grow. We scale to service requests from all our customers. We’re growing and so are they.

  • Care about agility as much you care for scalability and availability.

  • Be proud of what you work on, obsess about the quality of the work you produce. Join us to do the best work of your career.

  • Grow team’s capacity by mentoring and interviewing candidates. This is a chance to be an integral part of building and growing a team.

What skills do you need?

  • Ideally, you’ve built an exciting product in your previous roles and loved the satisfaction that comes with knowing that people around the world are using something you’ve created.

  • You can demonstrate significant impact that your work has had on the product and/or the team

  • You also need to have deep knowledge of a high-level programming language (for example, Ruby, Python, Perl etc.) but it doesn’t need to be a language that we use here! Great people are effective and learn what we use quickly (or introduce us to better ways of working)

  • You will have experience with Distributed systems.

  • Knowledge of Web or mobile animation.

What happens when you apply?

First, apply so we can review your CV :) As for the next step, we will send you our take-home test to work on in your own time. The following step will be a phone interview which will focus on technical and culture contribution questions (this step is sometimes broken down into 2 interviews). The final step is an onsite interview in our Gurgaon office (we can help with travel arrangements, etc.).


  • Competitive salary and meaningful equity in a fast-growing start-up.

  • Regular compensation reviews - we reward great work!

  • Open vacation policy and flexible holidays so you can take time off when you need to.

  • MacBooks are our standard, but we’re happy to get you whatever equipment helps you get your job done.
