We try to maintain an exciting and positive environment by bringing together capable people for solving challenging problems. We believe that we can change the world with technology and look forward to finding talented people who share the same belief.

Eligibility

Elance service provider or equivalent.

How to Apply

To apply for the software engineering position you have to register at http://www.elance.com and qualify as a capable service provider by taking the Elance Admission test. Please note that you can sign up with the free plan unless of course you want to proceed with becoming a freelancer on elance. Once you clear the admission test please take the following tests and note down your marks for each of these.

Essential Aptitude Tests

a) Programming Aptitude
b) English Vocabulary (US Version)
c) English Grammar (US Version)

Optional Technology Tests

d) PHP5
f) MySQL
g) CSS 2.0

These test scores are an indicator of your specific domain expertise only, and provide an advantage over another applicant of similar profile. Failing these tests does not automatically disqualify you from applying. Freshers are not expected to clear the technology tests but they are expected to write these tests though. Clearing the technology tests would definitely give you an edge over others who fail.

Submitting your profile

Once the tests are done, go to

Software Engineer (SE1) application form

and submit your profile. Use the additional comments in the form to tell us why you think we should hire you. If you have made contributions to the Free Software community in some way, make sure you mention that because we would love to hire Free Software contributors. Also mention references to your past work which you would like to highlight. Do submit links to your work or online portfolio.

If you have strong reason to believe that the tests do not do justice to your skill sets and abilities, you may submit your profile with a strong case represented in the "Additional comments" section of the application form.

Even if you don't get a call from us, we would have potentially opened up a freelancing career for you through elance.com. Explore that option while you wait for a call from us. Good luck and see you at Zyxware.
