A typical Day at work
You will come into office in the morning and grab a cup of coffee. We discourage coming into office late, and working till midnight. We only work late at crunch releases. We consider it a failure if we have to work weekends... but we do not complain if we have to get that critical release out. We realize that Google and Tesla was never built by 9 to 5 hrs. We never check Facebook or Instagram in office - we would rather put in solid hours of work and go for a Crossfit session in the evening, than wasting time and working till midnight. We encourage you to put your head down and take a nap when you want. Snoring is discouraged.
Work with the best
You will always hire and work with people smarter than yourself. We're looking for people who are unafraid to compete with big name universities and fancy titles... and are excited to build something entirely new. We want people who are fearless and hungry. On the technological front, you'll be working with our data science stack, our mobile apps as well as our web services. You will be unafraid to rewrite the entire python code because cProfile showed list comprehension is slowing down a batch operation on a machine with 256 mb RAM.
What we look for?
We NEVER hire based on college degrees or where you went to college. For our technical positions, your github or kaggle profile outranks your college degrees. In fact, we have proudly hired and work with people who don't have college degrees. For non-technology positions, you have to be extremely competent in your area of expertise and will need to be extremely hands on.
Values that we live By
There are certain beliefs that are the core foundation of a person, these are the rules that you live by. This is what we believe in at RedCarpet. This is our "culture-fit".
There's a subtle reason that programmers always want to throw away the code and start over. The reason that they think the old code is a mess is because of a cardinal, fundamental law of programming .. It’s harder to read code than to write it.
It's arrogance to think you are smarter than other smart people. But you can outwork them.
The best relationships are peer relationships. Better to have people work with us than for us. Debate rather than dictate.
Premature optimization is the root of all evil (or at least most of it)
Better to make a few users love you than a lot ambivalent. Make something people want.
Happiness isn’t an on/off switch. “If I finally get X, I’ll be happy” is a lie. Like fitness, happiness is built over time through practice
What focus means is saying no to something with every bone in your body think is a phenomenal idea, and you wake up thinking about it, but you end up saying no to it because you're focusing on something else.
No, you just want people to like you. And I'm surprised at you because I thought you really held the work up as the most important, not how you believed you were perceived by other people.
Do the best of what an early stage startup can pay
Early stage equity
Own the company. Share in the glory. Take a slice of a billion dollars
Calorie-conscious catered lunch.
We care about your wellness. (sometimes we do have pizza, coffee and beer! )
Work Remotely (sometimes)
We get it. Sometimes you want to work in your pyjamas. That's fine with us. (as long as you dont kill the team vibe)
Take a nap
We encourage you to sleep at work. (Seriously!!). Dont snore.
Strict culture of meritocracy
There are no bosses here. No "sir" or "madam".
At RedCarpet. Our backend tech stack uses Redis, Celery, Flask, Python, Docker, Postgres and Scikit. You will also end up touching a whole bunch of ReactJs for our internal webapps. We plan to build a stack that is scalable and builds on top of technologies like Kubernetes, PySpark, Luigi, AWS Lambda, Kafka, Gevent and Asyncio. We are looking for you to architect that. We were looking for someone to join us as our Technology Architect and join us on this incredible adventure. We’re looking for someone with a strong architectural and hacker background and willing to stand their ground and fight for what they believe is best - but be able to be pleasant while dealing with people. An engineer in this role is expected to design, build, deploy, and manage systems from scratch. You will wear multiple hats of “architect”, ”tester” or “debugger” … everyone is expected to build systems from scratch. This means that you will need to learn, ideate and innovate on various layers across the stack… and that comes with a tremendous amount of learning.
Some of the most incredible programmers Ive known do not have pretty resumes, so we have no minimum requirements for degrees. We’re also hyper-equal-opportunity quality work knows no bounds for race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, or religion. If you love your work and breathe code, we’ll do amazing things together, no matter who, what, or where you are. We do put a very high premium on your past work - and especially your github and play store portfolio. Please do not forget to send that in.
