For most, bagging a new job means painfully negotiating for the smallest of perks. But BharatPe’s new call for candidates is a far cry from that. In fact, they are doing something unusual -- offering perks like work from anywhere, work from Dubai during the T20 world cup along with a range of bikes like BMW G310R, Jawa Perak, KTM RC 390 or a gadget pack for new joinees.

The company aims to hire 100 people across various roles for its technology team in the current financial year. BharatPe is tripling the strength of its tech team as it plans to launch a range of products in the merchant and consumer lending space.

"BharatPe is a tech-first fintech. As we build the next generation of banking in India, we want to invite and excite the best tech talent to work with us on building market-leading products at scale," BharatPe Co-Founder and CEO Ashneer Grover said.

Coatue Management, Ribbit Capital, Steadview Capital, Beenext and Sequoia Capital are some of its investors.

WHO ARE THEY LOOKING FOR

BharatPe is hiring for Android, backend, web, iOS, DevSecOps, data engineering, POS/IoT, and QA (Automation). Candidates who have experience ranging from 2-16 years can apply for these roles.

Grover said that the company will take the lead in tech talent compensation because that is the only real investment its business needs to give capital efficiency of its model. There is a single interface for all existing UPI apps and it allows merchants to accept UPI payments for free, through QR.

Currently, the company has around 60 employees in its technology team.

WHAT ARE THEY OFFERING

The fintech firm is offering a range of perks. BharatPe claims that the compensation it offers is way above the market. A “geeky culture” and “lots of fun” are part of the package too.
