Why are we building Urbancomapny?

 

Organized service commerce is a large yet young industry in India. While India is a very large market for a home and local services (~USD 50 Billion in retail spends) and expected to double in the next 5 years, there is no billion-dollar company in this segment today.

 

The industry is bare ~20 years old, with a sub-optimal market architecture typical of an unorganized market - fragmented supply side operated by middlemen. As a result, experiences are broken for both customers and service professionals, each largely relying upon word of mouth to discover the other. The industry can easily be 1.5-2x larger than it is today if the frictions in user and professional's journeys are removed - and the experiences made more meaningful and joyful.

 

The Urban Company team is young and passionate, and we see a massive disruption opportunity in his industry. By leveraging technology, and a set of simple yet powerful processes, we wish to build a platform that can organize the world of services - and bring them to your finger-tips. We believe there is the immense value (akin to serendipity) in bringing together customers and professionals looking for each other. In the process, we hope to impact the lives of millions of service entrepreneurs, and transform service commerce they way Amazon transformed product commerce.

 

Job Description :

 

Urbancompany has grown 3x YOY and so as our tech stack. Over the last 5 years in the Urbancompany journey, we have grown from a single monolith to 65 microservices.

Out platform vertical majorly includes Data Engineering, Service and Core Platform, Infrastructure, and Security. We are looking for an Engineering Manager for Core Platform teams currently. A person who loves solving standardization, have strong platform thinking, opinions, and really understand the pain of software development at scale are more than welcome to join us.

 

Job Responsibilities

 

  • Building high octane teams with high opinions and strong platform thinking
  • Working on complex design and architectural problems.
  • Visioning out the roadmap and thought process behind taking current tech stack to next level
  • Building and maintaining the high NPS of 70% of platform products
  • Strong decision-maker with hands-on experience
  • Think about abstractions, systems and services and write high-quality code.
  • Have an understanding of loopholes in current systems/architecture that can potentially break in the future and push towards solving them with other stakeholders.
  • Think through complex architecture to build robust platforms to serve together all the categories and flows, solve for scale, and work on internally build services to cater to our growing needs.

 

Job Requirements

 

  • At least 1-2+ Years of experience in managing teams
  • 5-8 years of experience in the industry solving complex problems from scratch and have graduate/post-graduate degrees from top-tier universities.
  • A thinker with strong opinions and the ability to get those opinions into reality
  • Prior experience of creating complex systems in the past.
  • Ability to build scalable, sustainable, reliable, and secure products based on past experience and leading teams and projects by themselves.

  • History and familiarity with server-side architecture based on APIs, databases, infrastructure, and systems.
