Head of Technology at Freecharge.in

by chirag on November 15, 2010

Job Description:

Freecharge.in is an innovative e-commerce solution launched in August 2010. The basic aim of the service is to provide recharges for free, starting from Mobile recharge to DTH and all other possible avenues. The service is only 90 days old but the growth has been crazy (in all sense of the word.). We have crossed all expectations and targets.

We are now looking for a technology head who can accelerate our crazy growth and yet keep everything technically under control. We aim to be the largest private e-commerce company in India in next 6 months (in terms of number of daily transactions). If you don’t believe in the story, don’t apply.

Ideal Candidate:

1. Should have an e-commerce background, where he has been part of the core team in defining, building and scaling a product.

2. Managing software developers and designers should be a cakewalk for him.

Relevant tech. expertise:

The current system is LAMP based so the candidate should know everything around it, in and out. Hands-on experience with Linux based systems is a must. Coding in PHP should be like poetry. Minimum 3 yrs experience in these technologies is must.

Understanding of technologies like Java, C, ASP etc. would be also needed as APIs from partners are generally based on these technologies.

Job Description:

1. Build and maintain a technology team.

2. Oversee development work on day to day basis and do the programming himself.

3. Managing relationship with hosting company and implementing scalable technology from a production point of view.

4. Be a part of the product definition team and understand (and implement) everything technically required.

5. Managing relation with API providers and reflecting regular API changes in our system.

We are talking about 100K transactions daily. Please do not apply if you do not have the nerves to scale the system to that level.
