Does Bookmyshow offer parental leave?

Pros

* Salary on time and good genuinely colleagues, team training exercise, leadership building. * There are tones of problems you will get work/solve on the day in day out. * CTO Quoted, Don't leak your money to any 3rd parties; have an in-house solution, always look for saving a penny and earning a penny. I want to highlight here that our CTO mission is to reduce cost and not to leak it. Data-driven culture. Pandemic taught all of us how savings important. * Nine-month back, ~xx GB's logs used to generate! After nine months of clean up ~x GB logs. How did we achieve it? Collaboration & communication from the entire engineering team? Why, What is the purpose, Is it needed? Now, there is very little noise/no fuzz in the system alert. * Reengineered every aspect, DB consolidation, Query optimisation, Stopping DB leaks. Proper connection pooling across the systems. Efficient running the system with minimal resources. * Data Archival: TBs of data stored in MSSQL (Enterprise edition costs $14,256 per core). Migrated entire data to MySQL, able to run the same workload with 50% cost. * Team training & building excise, leadership training. * Migrating 15 years of legacy from On-Prem to AWS, with a completely remote team. 3 months of hardworking, slack was the only collaborative & communication channel no other means, CTO & Leadership team was utterly available throughout the activity shared the knowledge throughout. * Don't hire a new person; prompt the people within the company. CTO's teaches leadership quality. The best part is reaching dev will be difficult; CTO a call away. CTO treats everyone equally as a colleague, genuinely gives constructive feedback on areas of improvement, brings 20 years of experience to the meetings to give resolutions for any kind of problem. * Good people left the company; True, Good people tend to move on, the next person steps up their shoes, to become next good leads; leadership team, manager, CTO teaching/guidance throughout the process of building the new leads. * No questions asked for taking leave; just post it on the #OOO channel

This is one of the best place I have worked. The founders have set a great work culture and their attitude is passed on to the entire leadership team. The engineering team has been a great team to work with, all my colleagues were extremely helpful throughout my tenure. The CTO is the most approachable person and is always open for suggestion. There is a lot to learn from him and the entire team will agree. From a continuous war rooms to no war rooms wouldnt have been possible without him. He is truly an asset bookmyshow can cherish.
