Why Belong?

At Belong, we believe people are more than the skills they pick up, their work experiences, or the designations they hold. Because to build anything that lasts—be it a company, a social movement or an institution—we need to connect on a level beyond all that. We are human beings with aspirations and values, not human resources and we are meant to belong. Our vision is to make this a global reality. Through Outbound Hiring, we’re creating a new global category of products out of India.

What will you be working on? What is the problem you will be solving?

Our core tech problem at a high level is ‘Scaling Personalization’ in people search and engagement.

  • Creating technology that helps recruiters discover the right candidate for the right job, at the the right time (no one ever goes to the 2nd page of Google results right? Then why should recruiters?)
  • Building a scalable platform that helps recruiters, hiring managers and candidates engage with each other in a personalized way. (We’re all unique, and hence should be engaged uniquely)

On an average day you’d be breaking down technical challenges, writing code, looking at bugs, interacting with customers and collaborating with product managers, designers, front-end engineers, customer success manager to help create value.

What specific skills and traits should this person possess?

  • We’re a Python shop, however we’re not too specific on any language/framework background
  • Good interpersonal skills. They will be working closely with PMs, Designers, Customer Success Managers, Marketing team and Sales executives in their projects.
  • Should have worked on a product that they were able to drive to production. Preferably, a customer facing product rather than an internal product.
  • Ownership and customer-centric mindset, with a bias for speed.

What is the growth potential for this role?

Belong has a 15-20 member tech team and an audacious vision. All the ownership you can take is available here. You get the opportunity to focus and develop expertise on any one of the above mentioned problem statements at Belong and learning happens on the job. Beyond that, growth at Belong comes from the freedom you have to choose new technologies and working on experiments that have potential to drive non-linear growth. (A small side project called ‘Totoro’, has now done a business of ~$15K . Ask more about this when you speak to us. Many more such stories at Belong ;) )

How will you be making a difference in the industry or in the way the world works?

By Scaling Personalization in traditional HR, either via People Search or Candidate Engagement, we are changing how people find great work and are communicating with each other in the industry. We have proved that curated candidate pools and personalized communication causes much greater impact than age-old spray-n-pray techniques. The technology you build will have a direct impact on people joining workplaces where they can cause huge impact and belong. Imagine your tech getting the next Steve and Woz together.
