Backend Engineer


At KhataBook, we’re building utility solutions for small & medium businesses (SMBs). Our first offering – an Android app enabling businesses to digitally record the credit they extend to customers – went viral. In a matter of months, KhataBook has been downloaded 2M times, and more and more businesses are becoming a part of this network.

Some context of the market: 90% of India’s ~$1 Trillion Retail Market is controlled by traditional/unorganized sector. Which means ~$900B worth of commerce flows through ~50M small & medium shops/warehouses/kiosks/homes, scattered all over the country – from mighty metros to tiny villages. A network powered by millions of businesses, built-in turn to power these businesses – that’s our goal at KhataBook.

We’re a small team based in Bengaluru, funded by Sequoia, Info Edge & Y Combinator and we’re always looking for great folks to come and join us on this amazing adventure.
