The stage/The Gig: Software Engineering
Flipkart has defined the eCommerce industry in India and will continue its leadership with its core value of putting “customer first”. Flipkart is made of people who love being themselves and their independence of thoughts pave way for disruptive innovation on tech, biz and ops fronts.
We are looking for engineers who are well rounded - quality conscious, product thinkers, business congnizant and smart – not mere coders. Engineers get to significantly amplify their impact with the scale that Flipkart operates at. The same scale also demands the engineers to produce super-efficient solutions. Engineers participate and breed the culture of self-drive which is fuelled with merit based opportunities. In the pursuit of excellence, Flipsters compete against themselves because there is no competitor in the radar.
Flipsters’ area of work includes advanced information-retrieval algorithms, massive scalability, elastic storage, predictive analytics, fraud detection, inventory planning, supply chain, and large-scale applications that enrich the user experience, to name a few. Working with the market leader, engineers mostly solve challenges-never-seen-before. The environment makes receptive people with open mind and a drive of ownership to succeed and create impact. The excitement gets further fuelled with the impact of flipsters’ work felt and complimented by friends and family in India.
At Flipkart we miss no opportunity to celebrate our accomplishments. While we work hard, we party harder which helps us work hard again.
