Problem Statement-Solution

Only 10% of India speaks English and 90% speak over 25 languages and 1000s of dialects. The internet has largely been in English. A good part of India is now getting internet connectivity thanks to cheap smartphones and Network Providers. The non-English speaking internet users will balloon to about 600 million users out of the total 750 million internet users in India. This will make the vernacular segment one of the largest segments in the world - almost 2x the size of the Western population. The vernacular segment has very few products that they can use on the internet. One large human need is that of sharing thoughts and connecting with people of the same community on the basis of language and common interests. There’s a large unaddressed need for these vernacular users to express themselves in their mother tongue and connect with others from their community. Koo is a solution to this problem.

 

About Koo

Koo was founded in March 2020, as a micro-blogging platform in both Indian languages and English, which gives a voice to the millions of Indians who communicate in Indian languages.

Currently available in Assamese, Bengali, English, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu, Koo enables people from across India to express themselves online in their mother tongues. In a country where under 10% of the population speaks English as a native language, Koo meets the need for a social media platform that can deliver an immersive language experience to an Indian user, thereby enabling them to connect and interact with each other. The recently introduced ‘Talk to Type’ enables users to leverage the voice assistant to share their thoughts without having to type. In August 2021, Koo crossed 10 million downloads, in just 16 months of launch.

Since June 2021, Koo is available in Nigeria.

 

Founding Team

Koo is founded by veteran internet entrepreneurs – Aprameya Radhakrishna (CEO, Taxiforsure) and Mayank Bidawatka (Co-founder, Goodbox & Coreteam, redBus).

 

Technology Team & Culture

The technology team comprises sharp coders, technology geeks and guys who have been entrepreneurs or are entrepreneurial and extremely passionate towards technology. Talent is coming from the likes of Google, Walmart, Redbus, Dailyhunt. Anyone being part of a technology team will have a lot to learn from their peers and mentors. Download our android app and take a look at what we’ve built. Technology stack compromises of a wide variety of cutting-edge technologies like Kotlin, Java 15, Reactive Programming, MongoDB, Cassandra, Kubernetes, AWS, NodeJS, Python, ReactJS, Redis, Aerospike, ML, Deep learning etc. We believe in giving a lot of independence and autonomy to ownership-driven individuals.

 

Technology skill sets required

  • Work Experience between 5 to 10 years in mobile applications testing automation on Android, iOS and the web.

these problems and meanwhile build our own state-of-the-art algorithms.

About the company

Glynk is a new-age customer community platform for modern businesses. Drive higher engagement, more conversations, and better business outcomes through our highly flexible platform. We believe there is a better way to engage with your customers - a more valuable, less invasive way where customers have intrinsic motivation to engage with your brand. We're obsessively passionate

about it, and our mission is to help you achieve it.

 

Culture

If you're passionate about helping people build great communities and taking a leap in your career, we should talk.

Our strength is in execution. We don't just come up with great ideas but we also strive to execute them. As a result, we pride ourselves in being considered among the most successful product teams from India with a very (very) small team.

One for all. All for one. Teamwork is everything at Glynk. If you win - the team wins, if you lose - the team loses.

You will always be in the know of how your work is going to impact the business, communities or society. "Why?" is the one thing we will never get tired of hearing!

There is no inner circle. Everyone is encouraged to share information, knowledge, and ideas. Whenever in doubt, think like a leader - with a wider perspective.

You have our trust. Once you are a 'Glynker', we trust you to do amazing things. At Glynk, you have ownership over things that directly impacts the business. You can move fast, and learn even faster.

We look for only three traits in any Glynker: Attitude. Commitment. Strong desire to learn.
If you have these three, you can always add new skills to your playbook.

We are a team of happy people. You will see smiling faces with a very positive outlook towards life, all day. You should NOT apply if you mostly see the glass half-empty. This is something we are really particular about.

Glynkers are whole people, with families, hobbies, and lives outside of work. Our weekend cricket tournaments are the talk of the town. Third-floor Ninjas vs Basement Warriors is a Clasico you can't miss. And yes, did we mention that we also talk a lot about food and fitness?

If you believe you have everything needed to join us on what promises to be a fun journey, hop on!
