1-7 Years Hyderabad
Full Stack Cloud Developers
Keka has been disrupting the HR Tech market, thanks to our people and customers. We are here to create best experience for every employee in every organization in India and the world. Our developers make this transformation possible!
At Keka, we have an ownership mentality: every employee has the power to make our company better. Our engineers own projects from end-to-end by influencing initial feature specs, building backend & APIs (Azure & C#), writing frontend code (Angular), and overseeing ongoing production operations for deployed features.
We are looking for a seasoned developer with 4-8 years of hardcode programming experience in Microsoft Azure tech stack.
Traits we look in You
Craftsman Or A Code Coolie?
Clean code is a craft. There’s beauty in good code. Only craftsmen get it, while the code coolies are comfortably clueless, swirling in their own soup. Craftsmen spend hours iterating and refactoring until their code reaches a S.O.L.I.D state. They are extremely curious, always honing their skills and laser focused on solving the same problem with better approaches. Are you such craftsman?
“ A good programmer looks both ways before crossing a one-way street”
Naming And Readability Matters
Good coders respect and care for fellow coders’ time, so they always write code that is simple to read and understandable. They avoid convoluted and complex logic and keep it simple, stupid. And yes they are extremely careful about naming.
“You should name a variable using the same care with which you name a first-born child”
- Robert C Martin
Skills matter less. Problem solving matters most
At Keka, we are problem solvers first and programmers next. Skills are secondary – mere tools to solve real world problems. Tech is only a means to make an impact on the world. So the reason for you to join us shouldn’t be just some cool tech stack you get to work on, but the impact you are going to make on this world!
“First, solve the problem. Then write the code.”
- John Johnson
Can You Model The World?
No matter how great algorithms and code you write, if you can’t get your data and object modeling right, it demonstrates your lack of experience building real world scalable products. Before writing the first line of the code, you should understand what it will be doing, how it will be used, what it will use, how modules, services will work with each other, what structure will it have, how it will be tested and debugged, and how it will be updated. And you ask enough questions to get these answers.
“Bad programmers worry about the code. Good programmers worry about data structures and their relationships”
- Linus Torvalds
Devops, Not Your Thing?
Writing code is one thing. Getting it running and being used is altogether another. If you aspire to be an architect (and we insist you should), you should start being a part in Devops. At keka we expect developers to take part in devops every now and then. We also expect you come with some prior devops automation knowledge
“The most powerful tool we have as developers is automation.”
- Scott Hanselman
Talk Is Cheap. Show The Code.
Be willing to write code as we work with you in the interview process. We want the code to talk about you. If you rather feel you are too senior to take a code test, please stop reading this right away. We are sorry you had to waste time reading this long passage. We are not right place for you.
“Talk is cheap. Show me the code”
- Linus Torvalds
Say ”I Don’t Know”
There’s no quicker way to waste your time as a developer than to refuse to acknowledge what you don’t know. What makes you valuable isn’t what you know, but rather your humility and ability to quickly learn from others and adapt to evolving technologies. A good programmers know what’s relevant today is outdated tomorrow.
“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”
- Charles Darwin
What you would be doing
You would be working on full stack Azure to Angular tech stack that covers – SQL, Cosmos, Azure Tables, Redis, Service Fabric, C#, Azure Functions, Type Script, Angular 7, Node, SASS, Build Automation and many more.
We have roles that heavily focus on pure background architecture/middle tier C# or primarily Angular driven too.
You are expected to mentor junior team members
