Work Culture

For Engineers, By Engineers

  • NicheSoft founder - Natraj - has 20+ years' experience in the industry. Some NicheSoft engineers were born the year he finished his Master's degree, so he relatively is old. And he still codes (or thinks he does).
  • Surendra, Sudarshan & Ragoth are of similar vintage - but all are hands-on.
  • Therefore, caring & obsessing about good design/code is part of the DNA here.
  • 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 of young people apart from the aforementioned old guys.

  • 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 have a nice little office that employees are very proud of decorating on our anniversary You'll have

  • Decent computers, monitors, tables and Featherlite chairs.
  • Full power backup of course.
  • Water, Air, Electricity.
  • Good bandwidth.
  • And the occasional free lunch & beer.


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 service company salaries go in Bangalore. As far as service companies our size go, we are very, very generous.
