You’ll do your best work and have the most fun in a team where you feel you belong and when you’re invested in the success of the company and the team as a whole. We are looking for individuals who are enthusiastic, passionate and have excellent potential rather than a specific skill set. During the course of your conversations across interviews, please make sure to display that side of you!"
Chandana Nagaraj, Senior Director of Engineering, India
