Interviews are a key factor in the recruitment process. But if you’ve ever gone through weeks of communicating with a potential employer over the phone or via email, without even getting an interview, it can feel exhausting.
Is receiving job application responses within a reasonable timeframe too much to ask? Canadian company Paytm Labs doesn’t think so. The firm is behind the Paytm Canada app, which simplifies the process of paying bills and rewards you for it, too.
Now, Paytm Labs is redefining the traditional HR model by offering an outline of what prospective applicants can expect when they apply for (and land) any of the current openings available on its website. Hint: employee benefits activate immediately (within Canada).
It’s an exciting time to join Paytm Labs as the company has invested over $50 million in the growth of its future operations. And while the firm’s main office is in Toronto, with a second in Montreal, new employees have the option to work remotely from anywhere across the country.
If you’re a self-confessed techie who oozes passion and ownership, consider applying for the full-time machine learning engineer position. In this role, you’ll work with data scientists, statisticians, and fellow engineers to create software to be used by millions of people.
The role of a data engineer is another option — if you’re passionate about producing clean, maintainable, and testable code that’s part of a real-time data pipeline. This full-time gig invites you to work with software engineers, building event-driven microservices, and a lot more.
Those with the ability to learn coding languages, coupled with software development experience, can apply to become a software engineer with Paytm Labs. Wearing this hat, you’ll work on the company’s global payments system, which needs high scalability, reliability, and availability.
Perks of the job
Working at Paytm Labs comes with a wide range of perks (yay!). This starts with being a part of a talented team that challenges and motivates you to reach your full potential. You can create your own career path with job flexibility and take advantage of continuous learning opportunities to advance within the company.
Employees are given trust and autonomy the day that they’re hired. By removing this barrier, Paytm Labs employees are empowered to independently make critical decisions and hold a high level of accountability in their roles.
One thing to note is that the company offers 100% covered group health benefits, which activate within Canada on the day you start your job, so there’s no need to wait three months for your group benefits to kick in. Before the pandemic hit, employees at Paytm Labs travelled internationally for their projects, allowing them to combine their travel goals with work goals.
In the office, there’s no shortage of places to get creative and brainstorm with cozy work areas, ping pong tables, and swing chairs. (Yes, there are always snacks in the fully-stocked kitchen.) The company also recently renovated two additional floors at its Toronto office, providing even more comfort for staff to get in the zone for their eventual return to the office.
The beauty of applying for a role at Paytm Labs is that all positions offer autonomy, ownership, and the chance to work on projects that impact the lives of millions. Now, during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the company hosts virtual events for staff, ranging from game nights to movie nights, origami sessions to lunch and learns, to weekly zoom meditations and stretches.
