From outside, HackerEarth’s story may seem as one of those much talked about dorm room startups that has shown promise and rapidly growing. While most of that is true, HackerEarth’s story has been about perseverance and focus towards one goal - making technical recruitment simple and efficient. And this journey has been no walk in the park - we have had our share of challenges and we know there are more to come in the future.
But HackerEarth’s real story is that of the people who run it. From the two college friends who willed an idea to reality, to the people who put their faith into the aim of the startup and took it as their own, HackerEarth is many stories, of the people who make it. Our story is continually changing, as the people at HackerEarth keep writing new ones, everyday.
As with any growing startup, there is no restriction to the work that you should be doing at HackerEarth. You will have verticals that you will completely own, but that shouldn’t restrict you. Developers teaching marketers programming and sales people providing design inputs is a common sight at HackerEarth. Everyone here is an owner of the company and we are always open to hearing people who can help us become better.
You will not be assigned tasks, you will be entrusted with them. How every team member performs, is directly consequential to the company’s growth, and you will be expected to do your work as if you were the founder of the company. There will be very little supervision, but you will be held accountable for the work that is entrusted on you.
There are no steadfast rules - we don’t care about what you wear (as long as you’re clothed), how you work, or if you swear a lot (you’ll have company). We respect hard workers, quick learners, passionate people, perfectionists and intrinsically curious people. You will see shades of these characteristics in everyone who works at HackerEarth. We also urge our employees to be physically fit.
And we have loads of fun
We believe that all work and no play makes jack a dull boy. Team outings, movie nights with the founders, impromptu guitar and singing during office hours, hours of loud music, to team gaming face offs (AOE, counter strike, need for speed and the works!).
If you’re a foodie, consider HackerEarth heaven. Not only will you spoilt with an unlimited (these limits are often tested) supply food, you will also be surrounded by people who know and love food. There are strong opinions about just about everything here and there are often fights about it. But at the end of the day, you will make friends for life here.
