Hiring: Rockstar Developer

July 07, 2023

We are looking for a rockstar developer to join us, starting towards the end of this month (Jul 2023).

We are a software startup, and currently taking on agency-type work, building websites and web applications for other companies. We also have several products / services that we want to build. The developer will start out by helping with some of the client work, and then based on performance, may get to work on a product.

We work primarily with Python, Django, DRF, Javascript, HTML, CSS, React, NextJS, Celery, Postgres, Redis, AWS, Git, Github, and more.

What we can offer:

  1. Tons of opprtunities to work on, solve and learn from real world problems.
  2. Fully remote position, flexible work timings.
  3. Decent salary. Say 10K-15K INR a month? It’s not much, sorry, but it’s better than just a pretentious certificate :)

What we want in return:

  1. Hustle, willingness to learn, and a growth mindset. We’re a very lean, very scrappy, bootstrapped one person company.
  2. You are good with English — speaking and writing.
  3. You are good with the tools, languages and frameworks we use. We don’t mean you took an online course about them; we mean you used them to actually build something other than mandatory college projects.
  4. You don’t need to be managed, and can get things done on your own.
  5. Around 30 hours a week of your time, and you MUST have a computer or laptop with a good internet connection. The 30 hours doesn’t have to be on a fixed schedule, but you must ofcourse respect deadlines and commitments.

You are the ideal candidate for this, if you:

  1. Are almost finished with college and looking for a side gig.
  2. Have just finished with college and looking for an adventure.
  3. Have / had atleast a couple of arrears in college, because you got bored and started working on something on your own instead of going to class.
  4. Have built something on your own before, of your own interest — apps, websites, services, lemonade stands, anything goes.
  5. Found the typo in this message. (tell us what it is when you apply!)

Some other things to consider:

  1. This post says “we” a lot, but the company is really just one soloprenuer: @pradeepcep
  2. If you want to work for a “reputable” company, this probably isn’t it (yet). This is a fledgling startup that’s hustling its way through to the top, not an established corporate company.
  3. If you are more proud of your CGPA than of the things you’ve built / learnt yourself, then you probably wouldn’t be a fit.
  4. The guy behind this company took 6 years to complete a 4 year engineering course, and very likely knows less about most things than you do :)
