How Squadcast's Work Culture is Helping Us Grow and Succeed

In our series Squad Talks, Fulsmita debriefs our team on what makes them tick at Squadcast. Madhu from our Engineering team shares his thoughts on what it's like to work at ground zero of a fast growing tech startup. Here we go!

    How did you get started at Squadcast?

    While I was at Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) at their CTO Labs, Sisir (our CTO) pinged me for a potential opportunity. I started checking out the product, got really interested and scheduled an interview. I still remember vividly, that it was a Monday, at around 6 PM in the evening when I dropped by the office, and the team was working intensely on Project V2. Once I settled down, Amiya (the CEO) dove into the product, and explained what I'd get to work on. I was super pumped up after the meeting, and immediately wanted to work on this project and said yes to the offer by midnight on the same day. And that's how I ended up joining the team as a Front End Engineer.

    What tech do you get to work with?

    I work on basically everything and anything under the sun that cuts across front-end and our customer-facing web applications. I work a lot in Javascript, with Node.js, and the React ecosystem. We really push forward as a team for a pixel-perfect customer-experience across all our interfaces. I spend a lot of time working on our web app and the mobile app. This week, I've been working on using Observables in our frontend code, which is turning out to be a lot of fun!

    What does a typical day look like for you at Squadcast?

    I get into work between 10 and 11 in the morning, and sync up with the team on the tasks for the day. I make a list of my todos and have a lot of fun along the day checking them off the list. One of my colleagues Manigandan sometimes caters to my food cravings by cooking up exotic dishes in our office kitchen for lunch. I usually try to finish up my work by the end of the day and go home. I like learning something new everyday.

    What is one thing everyone should know about Squadcast?

    The team here is very open and encourages us to have an opinion irrespective of whether it is correct or not. We like to have open debates on most of the topics, and of course, sometimes it can go very deep. We try to avoid letting our egos come in the way of such discussions. So, even if your own idea may not be connecting the dots for the end goal, you will still be pretty satisfied with how the eventual decision was made.
