We are hiring.

Published: 26 Sep 2011

At Urbantouch, we are building the next generation e-commerce platform that scales to tens of thousands of orders a day, is insanely fast, and makes the overall online shopping experience a breeze, so brick and mortar stores finally become a thing of past. We are looking for exceptional programmers who can write code, and write it well (there would not be a QA team to fall back on). We don’t intend to do anything twice, we expect you to tinker; we expect you to be the best. Our backend will be using node.js + mysql, our frontend will be built in javascript/jquery/html5, we need programmers who can think async, can code in callbacks, would test their own code and can wear multiple hats.

A cross discipline mindset is a must.

You should be

  • Hands on with code in either of C, C++, Java, Javascript, Ruby, Python. Multi-programming-lingual. The more the merrier.
  • Comfortable working in a *nix environment.
  • Eager to learn new tools, techniques, languages, and technologies.
  • Passionate about making a difference to the world.
  • Able to contribute to system architecture and design.
  • Able to debug non-trivial application code.
  • Able to write clear, concise source-code documentation, unit and integration tests.
  • Able to think beyond code to architecture and user experience.
  • Able to communicate and coordinate within a team.

Nice but not required:

  • B.Tech in CS, with strong product development experience.
  • Prior experience with e-commerce or web application development.
  • Contributions to open-source projects.
  • Understanding of scope, closures, callbacks, prototypical inheritance, and asynchronous programming techniques.
  • Experience with node.js or core javascript (beyond form validation).
  • Experience with mysql and/or nosql databases, memcached, nginx.
  • Experience with dynamic languages (Python, Ruby).
  • Experience with git.
  • Familiarity with unit testing, integration testing, and test-driven development.
  • Experience with HTML5, CSS, JQuery, Bootstrap etc.

If you fit the bill and are interested, write to us at jobs@urbantouch.com with Tech in the subject line. Work experience is not a must - freshers with an exceptional track record can apply as well.
