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, writing frontend code, and overseeing ongoing production operations for deployed features. We are looking for a passionate Flutter Mobile developer who has experience working on Android and IOS platforms. As with every programmer, we look for certain traits in you. 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” -Anonymous 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. “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
We are looking for a product manager that is strong on Tech, UX and Marketing to work on our SaaS platform, which is now ranked top HR platform in India. The product space we are in poses engineering challenges of an ERP and yet demands a user experience of that of a consumer grade application. While accommodating myriad and varying business needs of thousands of customers, we still need to provide best user experience without complicating the product. Such holistic marriage of engineering and UX excellence is where our competitors struggle and Keka thrives. As a product manager you'd be leading this effort. We are looking for following traits in you. A Visual thinker ============== This is first and foremost important trait we need in you. A visual thinker who can cut through myriad pieces of informationa and create sense in a clear and concise way. More about Visual thinking below http://www.xplaner.com/visual-thinking-school/ https://www.lifehack.org/275993/7-things-only-visual-thinkers-will-understand A keen sense of design ===================== There are two people: Those who understand design and those who don't. While wireframing is a good start, a keen sense of visual design and aesthetics is a must. You don't have to be a great visual designer, but you should contrast between a good design and a bad design, and pick what is right for your product. You should be able to speak to a designer in terms such as contracst, visual heirarchy and whitespace. Empathetic =========== Understanding customers, their pain points and success factors requires empathy. In your role as a Product Manager, working with various stakeholders, constantly mediating and forging compromises between different viewpoints, it is easy to lose track of customer. Empathy towards customer needs serves as your north star there. You must successfully represent the customer’s needs, who is never present during internal decision-making, but is the most essential stakeholder. Biased towards execution ======================== All talk and intellectuality without execution is useless if it doesn't translate into outcome. A strong bias for execution and getting things out the door, therefore is a must. Tech Background is a big plus ======================== A Product manager from a tech background is quick in independent decision making and will feel most comfortable working with engineers. Not to mention, we are in enterprise SaaS space where platform thinking and technical integrations are very much part of the product. Roles & Responsibilities ==================================== - Understand overall market, competitive space, determine market segmentation, positioning and more - Understand user needs, pain points and success factors - Create vision/strategy for the product that responds to these user and market needs. - Convey the strategy in form of short and long term product roadmap, prioritize features based on priority and execution time. - Coordinate and support different teams all through the product life cycle - Business, engineering, design, sales, marketing and support teams.
