Mission

Help businesses win by providing best engineering talent and technology solutions.

Values

  • Honesty: Being honest is the only way to become trustworthy and be reliable to your team and your clients. If you are stuck, going through rough time or made a mistake, speak up. It's always the right thing to do.
  • Independent: We look for people, who can solve problems and work independently. We are not good at handholding.
  • Passionate: Be passionate about what you do. If you are not, you will not succeed. We enjoy working with passionate people. If you stopped enjoying what you do at JT, talk to your manager.
  • Delivering commitments on time: Commit. Deliver. It is almost impossible to run a company if your team members and your clients cannot rely on you.
  • Strong work ethics: Work matters. It puts food on the table as well as bring meaning to our life. If you are working with us, bring your A game. If you are considering freelance or work part-time with other firms along with a full-time job with us, please talk to your manager beforehand. In our experience, this almost never works. If you want to broaden your horizon, talk to your manager. We often encourage giving back to the community and can help you identify right open source projects to contribute.
  • Do not give up: From time to time, you will find yourself in a situation that may be out of your comfort zone. Do not give up. Ever. Push yourself and you will win.
  • Team player: Appreciate if someone did well. Help them improve by giving them constructive feedback when you see an opportunity for your team members to grow.

About us

Jai started Jalan Technologies in 2016 after realizing that there are a lot of businesses who are always looking for reliable technology partners to help them deliver solutions. Before JT, he spent a decade working with Microsoft, Google, Startups where he leads engineering teams.

Our primary nature of the business is technology consulting and implementation of software systems. Our technology consultants bring clients on board by pitching software solutions and our software engineers work with clients to deliver them. Our engineers take full ownership of features and work alongside with customers to deliver them.

We often work on few products of our own as well (such as Omnimetic) under Jalan Technologies Labs. If you are looking to work with us, talk to your hiring manager to learn more about our works.

Working at Jalan Technologies

Best Practices

  • Be on time. Respect other people time.
  • Be patient. Listen first. Understand other's perspective first. Speak after.
  • Always be professional in both verbal and written communication, both internally and externally. Use Grammarly if you need help with your written communication.
  • If you are on a call, please turn on video in both internal and external communication. It feels pretty weird talking to a computer. Seeing creates a human connection.
  • Make sure your profile accurately describes what you do on Github, LinkedIn, Angel.co including a profile picture. Prospective clients and team members often research about us on the internet.

Daily Status Update

  • Before you start your day at work, please update appropriate channel with Progress (What you worked upon), Plan (What you plan to work on), Problems (Any blocking issues). This is very important in remote work setting to let your customer and team know about your progress.
