Meet Shreya Chakraborty. She is one of our recent graduate hires. Shreya went to SRM University and aspires to build products that have an impact on day-to-day lives. Read about her interview experience below.
How long have you been working at Indix?
I finished my four-month internship in April 2015 and joined as a full-time employee in June.
What first attracted you to want to interview with Indix?
The fact that we are trying to build the world’s largest database of products. Also, ecommerce has become synonymous with our daily lives now. Being able to impact something which affects us all in the long run was another incentive.
What about the interview process helped convince you that Indix is the place for you?
The fact that the focus was to solve the given problems and not on any other formalities resonated the work culture at Indix.
If there was one word to describe how you felt when you got your offer, what was it? Why did you choose that word?
Ecstatic! It was my first job offer, and I’ve always wanted to work in a startup.
If you had to describe the whole process in one or two words, what would it be?
Challenging and Enlightening.
If you could give advice to future candidates on how to best prepare for and handle interviews at Indix, what would you tell them?
To concentrate on their basics more, as that is what is thoroughly checked for. To get to the “why” and “how” beyond the “what” of any problem. Keeping yourself updated with current technologies would be an added advantage.
What did you learn about the team and culture at Indix during your interview process?
The team is ever encouraging. You are free to ask questions, and people are ready to answer till you are satisfied, even while people are interviewing you, let alone on work days. We had “discussions” rather than “interviews”, which shows how employees are at ease with their work environment.
