Company Vision

The best companies in the world have the best internal applications which enable their employees to excel and be more productive. 

In the future custom software developed for internal users will look and work no differently than the best out-of-the-box SAAS products of the future. Internal users will demand great UX, great customer support, and great reliability from their in-house development teams.

Appsmith is the easiest way to build polished custom internal applications. Our product will enable developers to build, deploy and maintain custom software quickly and painlessly. We’ll be the first port of call for developers when they are tasked with building internal apps because we’ll increase the speed of development, testing, and iteration by 10X.

What do we value?

  • Above all, we value a growth mindset. As a team of learners, we read, talk to people and listen to feedback constantly. We love working with people who have strong opinions, weakly held.
  • Self starters and ambitious people form the backbone of our team. Do you want to work on bigger projects? Are you comfortable setting large goals and then accomplishing them?
  • We value consistency and reliability. For example, sticking to committed deadlines, showing up on time etc. We believe that predictability makes teams run a lot smoother.
  • It’s the little things that matter. Attention to detail shows that we empathize with our users, our colleagues and anyone else that we interact with.
  • Are you a practical optimist? Our founding team strongly believes in a better future. We believe in playing our part to make that future a reality.

Must Have Skills

  • A strong grasp of server-side programming languages like Python / Java is a must. Since these will be our primary languages of choice, prior work experience in these languages will help you ramp up quickly with the rest of the team.
  • An extremely good working knowledge of relational database systems (MySQL/PostgreSQL) or NoSQL databases such as MongoDB.
  • Being able to understand & design REST APIs is critical to ensure any reasonably complex functionality within the product.
  • Working knowledge of cloud infrastructure providers such as AWS / Azure.
