Yes, we do hire from campuses and we believe firmly in grooming our own talent from schools.
We hire people for not who they were; but more for who they could become. Hence, for that same reason we invest a good amount of our our time in curating our own talent from schools, that too not from the usual big name institutions (not that we don’t like them). But, from any place that is as anywhere it can get. School pedigree, doesn’t matter much to us.
Besides being good engineers, many of us are trying to be good teachers and mentors. We find nurturing untapped potential and setting them up on a good career path is far more fulfilling. It may take lots of patience to grow and nurture our own talent. But, we feel it is worth the effort it takes and we are proud to see the way some of our campus hires have grown with us to deliver some great work.
Our same hiring philosophy applies even for Campus Hires. Before you shoot out an email, do remember to share your Github profile or other work that you are proud of. Let your work speak more than your resume and certificates.
