Senior Backend Engineer

Bengaluru

About

We‘re looking for minds who match the phenomenal growth attitude of the company. Built on individual initiative, raw energy and a go-getter attitude, we have a foosball table at the centre of our discussions! They say you can judge the team by its refrigerator, well at KhataBook it’s always stocked.

At KhataBook, we’re building utility solutions for the nation’s 60 million-strong SMBs sector. Our first offering – an Android App enabling businesses to digitally record the credit they extend to customers – went viral. In a matter of 6 months, KhataBook has been downloaded 7M times, more and more businesses are becoming a part of this network. Khatabook recorded transactions totalling $3 Bn in August 2019.

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 ~60M 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.

Why our users love us: The app effectively cuts down the receivables of merchants to half within a few weeks of onboarding them. Its users recovered approximately $5 bn stuck in credit in six months, significantly impacting India’s MSME sector.

Where we currently are: KhataBook recently closed a $25 Million Series A Round and is backed by the top investors in the business. Founded by four IIT-Bombay grads, KhataBook is led by Ravish Naresh, Co-founder and COO at Housing.com, one of India’s most significant property listing websites.

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