Startups hiring trends 2018: Good news for engineers

Now-a-days, Startups have become the major source of employment and the startup culture is growing tremendously in India. Employees love to work in startups not only due to handsome salaries but also due to the creative space they are getting to do the right kind of job. Meanwhile, the forthcoming placement uproar is not getting the media attention as compared to last year’s recruitment process; nevertheless, engineering students do have the reasons to celebrate. Top startups are now making their way to IITs and other engineering colleges to select and offer placements to the best talents.

The story so far….

The roles of AI engineer, data analyst, user-experience engineer and software developer are what startups are eyeing to hire. And companies are willing to offer lucrative packages in the range of 10-16 Lakhs per annum for such roles. Companies such as PayTM and Pepperfry have made their mind very clear to filter out the best talents from the Indian engineering colleges in 2018. Modern and funded companies are laying strong emphasis on growing their tech teams and are ready to offer whopping salaries for the roles of data analyst and augmented reality engineering.

 Top startups are looking to focus more in hiring talents in the year 2018 as they are expanding their teams in the pursuit of growing their business. Startups like PayTM have already made 26-30 offers across the National Institute of Technology and other engineering colleges as confirmed by the top management.  The management team also confirmed that those with exceptional coding skills and strong grasp in data structures will be preferred.

The rise of mid-sized startups

The trend suggests that mid-sized startups are going to hire talented freshers from top engineering institutes. In this era of big data, there will be no dearth of jobs for engineers passing out from top colleges. Seeing the strong future of artificial intelligence, mobile software development, back-end and front-end development, startups are ready to pay anything in-between Rs 15 lakh to Rs 25 lakh for the aforementioned roles.  Most importantly, many startups have made it clear that skills set are not only the parameters to judge the efficiency of candidates, what is more crucial is their ability to stay updated with trends and adapt to any upcoming challenge with perfection. Those who will be able to multitask will be preferred.

Right from fashion technology startups to e-commerce companies, every firm is getting ready to hire more engineers across many Indian institutes. The year 2018 is going to prove good for engineers as startups are leaving no stone unturned to hire the efficient resources and the number is going to rise in coming times.
