Work here

For Engineers, By Engineers

  • NicheSoft's founder - Natraj Gujran - has 17 years' experience in the industry. Most NicheSoft engineers were babies when he started college, so he relatively is old. And he still codes.
  • Therefore, caring & obsessing about good design/code is part of the company DNA.
  • Engineering and engineers are held in high regard. You will not hear silly HR phrases like 'code coolies'. We believe, being a good 'code coolie' is a non-trivial job, and we're proud of it. :)
  • You also will not be hearing management jargon such as working the paradigm shift, valuing prepositions, etc.

People at NicheSoft

We are currently a very small team (< 20 ) of young people apart from the aforementioned old guy.

  • We often wish the traffic noises were louder, so our ears are saved from the same 4 songs on the guitar
  • Serious arguments happen about who has to 'commute' to the water cooler to fill up the water bottles.
  • People are giggling/laughing for apparently no reason.
  • Nobody will be stuck for too long at a problem, unless it's just plain fun to watch. We have 'em all : Studious, Organized, Front Benchers, Back benchers, Disorganized, and everything in between.
  • All things you are very proud of - your talents, your dressing style, how organized/disorganized you are - will be used against you for a few laughs
  • When a certain employee starts wearing a jacket inside the office, we know he has run out of washed shirts.
  • A certain enlightened soul wears a single pair of jeans for 6 months - continously.Then he buys another one.
  • We hear statements like ".. R. D. Burman .... he was an actor, right? "

Work Environment

We are a little better off than a garage - not by much, however. But, you'll have

  • Decent computers, monitors, tables and chairs.
  • Full power backup of course
  • Water, Air, Electricity.
  • Good bandwidth
  • And the occasional free lunch & beer.
  • Most importantly: None of the above are counted in your pay cheque.

The way we choose

  • We value attitude more than aptitude. We also believe no-experience is better than years of doing stuff without any learning. Clear fundamentals of programming are more valuable than spouting off names of frameworks/languages/buzzwords.
  • We expect you to be good problem solvers. So, the interview is always a mix of puzzles & programming questions. If you don't have a programming background, it will be puzzle heavy.
  • Freshers will go through a training/assessment period which usually lasts between 2-4 months

Do we pay well?

  • We are generous as far as consulting company salaries go in Bangalore. As far as consulting companies our size go, we are very, very generous. And no, we don't talk in inflated terms like CTC, but in terms of what comes into your bank account every month.

Are we hiring?

  • We do not hire often, but we are always interested in your resumes. If you look interesting to us, we would also like to talk to you. A job might not be in the offing immediately, but it gives you and us a chance to talk and form an opinon about each other.
  • Please send us your resume to resumes@nichesoft.net
