Shyam Krishnamurthy, CTO, Zivame said, “While Zivame is a lingerie company, what sets us apart is our tech expertise. The entire consumer experience is driven by tech – from the website to the delivery to feedback.  Our technology makes the organization future ready, data driven & poised for scale. Therefore, we are always looking for exceptional engineering talent to be a part of our team. A hackathon helps replicate real life coding problems that we want to test our applicants on, in a fun and engaging, yet professional atmosphere.”


Zivame is looking for both front end and back end developers to be a part of the hackathon. For front end, a team should have PHP, JavaScript, CSS3, HTML5, MySQL, Postgres, Mongo DB, HBase, Cassandra, Linux Operating System, Git, SVN and Magento as part of their stack. For back end, a team should have Python/Java, Scala, API Integration, MySQL/Postgres, MongoDB, Redis, Linux Operating System, Git, and SVNas part of their stack.


The challenge for the hackathon will be announced on the spot. Emphasis of the hackathon will be on a candidate’s coding practices – reusable and maintainable code. Once a candidate applies, the Zivame team will send them relevant material to help them to start preparing for the event. The participants will be Zivame’s guests and will be offered lunch and dinner on November 14. Since the event will require candidates to work the entire night, they are requested to bring their own linen while basic sleeping facilities will be provided by the company.
