A full stack web developer is a generalist who works on both the backend and the frontend of a web app. Requires good knowledge of (or willingness to learn) a server-side framework like Express and Node.js and client-side frameworks like React or Vue.js.
The Hackकर team has placed candidates in startups like Freshworks, Freecharge, Tally, Ola, Citrus Pay, and many more. We're continuously working with more startups every day. If you get selected, we guarantee at least 3 interviews from our partner companies.
Programmers working in real companies do not compete with each other. They work together to solve complex problems. This is why I’m excited about Hackकर: it’s not competitive coding, but solving a real world task & getting feedback from senior engineers. I’m definitely looking forward to hire the candidates from Hackकर!

Every line of code you write through Hackकर will be reviewed by a senior programmer. I think this is an invaluable value-add for both companies & candidates. I’m definitely looking forward to hire candidates from Hackकर.

Hackकर gives you detailed feedback on code the way we do code reviews at our startup. I think it’s an excellent practice. Hire the same way you code everyday! I’m definitely looking forward to hire candidates from Hackकर.
