Get April off to a rollicking start and catapult your career to its next big milestone with Indix’s awesome challenge. Slotted for 24 hours, the challenge will see true data warriors fight it out and emerge to win big prizes worth an eye-popping INR 1 lakh. If you impress beyond words at the mega hackathon, you may even walk away with a hot, hot offer from one of the best startups around – Indix.
Based in Chennai, Indix has its ambitions clearly chalked out. They want to be the ‘Google Maps’ of products. The have been busy building the world’s product marketplace that uses the most sophisticated data science to build world-class Product APIs. Indix has been a huge hit with its customers, especially in the e-commerce space, who use the platform to improve and search product information, and analyze intelligence.
So, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Indix is passionate about all things data. Which makes them the perfect people to host a data hack, don’t you think? The hackathon, calls data scientists, to help solve the two areas that prove to be the most problematic in the data space – scale and diversity. It only gets further complicated and crowded with aspects like text mining, natural language processing, product matching, and search relevance done on a massive scale.
To make all of these aspects work in semantic form and not lose your mind over hard data problems is not a task for the faint-hearted. And if you think you can handle it, without breaking into a nervous sweat every two minutes (which is understandable), then Indix wants you at the hackathon. It would be a bonus addition, if your profile is packed with experience in Java, Python, Data Mining, Machine Learning, NLP, Scalable Algorithms, and Statistics.
Now for the nitty-gritty. Data warriors with over 2 years of experience in the field are welcome to apply. You can apply here. If your name appears on the shortlist, then we welcome you to the battlefield on April 2. On D-Day, we encourage you to slay the problem single-handedly but we are also open to hosting teams of not more than two.
Finally, don’t forget to bring your computer, charger and linen (in case, you can’t miss your cat naps) along. And come prepared for a mind blowing challenge that pushes your boundaries, tests your skills, and gives you the opportunity to shine amongst the very best in the industry.
