Who we are:

A team of young, ambitious, and bold people who are working tirelessly to change India, and at the same time, love to have fun! If you get selected, expect some unplanned treats, outings, and some great moments.

What you will contribute to:

You will be directly working on modules that will be or are already used in production. These modules are built to scale, and seeing something you worked on scaling to cater to so many users is amazing! You will use an array of technologies used within BharatX, not limited to NoSQL databases, message brokers, and weird choices of HTTP servers. Bugs are our friends whom we greet every other day.

* Production server apps and systems that affect all our customers.

* Algorithms, pipelines and custom software.

* Infrastructure we use to support our products.

What you will learn:

How to get stuff done! You will solve real-world challenges that no experience or training can help you. Only your grit and passion for solving the problem will help you figure out how to deal with them.

* Develop back-end components, services, and APIs.

* Take complete ownership of projects and ensure timely deliveries.

* Identify architectural weaknesses, design issues, performance and scalability issues, and recommend solutions.

* Startup work experience (preferred).

We also encourage you to apply even if you took a break from professional life for whatever reasons. For us, the people and their skill matter more than their resumes.
