Sqrrl Fintech is looking for a competent, motivated backend engineer to join its team in Gurgaon.

Sqrrl is India's most beginner-friendly savings and investments app, available in 9 Indian languages, currently allowing young investors to start investing in Mutual Funds.

Here are the key requirements for this position:

  • Strong Python skills, with experience of at least one web framework (e.g. Flask)

  • Comfortable in libraries/tools commonly used in python web development - requests, redis, celery.
  • Stomach for an early-stage startup environment - high speed iterations, small teams, ownership of flows, fluid product roadmaps. While we do not encourage 16-hour shifts or night-outs like a lot of startups, sometimes we need to urgently get things done, and may not pat you on the back for it.
  • Overall anything between 2-4 years of actual work experience.
  • Optimising learning over earning (if you like to switch for pay hikes frequently, please do not apply)

Here are some bonus (optional) requirements:
