Scaler, a leading upskilling platform for students and working professionals, announced the acquisition of a matrimonial website for software engineers working with leading technology companies – FAANGShaadi.com.
Most engineers enrolled with Scaler have had little time to date while also honing their tech skills and often complain of low overall life satisfaction. Though the COVID-19 pandemic has spurred more people to upskill themselves, it has restricted mobility and hence the chances of meeting one’s soulmate.
Scaler takes pride in preparing and propelling the most promising tech talent in India. Consequently, the acquisition of FAANGShaadi.com , a leading provider of matrimonial services to top-ranked coders in the country, would help fulfil Scaler’s mission.
Abhimanyu Saxena, Co-Founder, Scaler & InterviewBit, said, “Over the past 2 years, we’ve been fortunate to have helped transform the lives of thousands of software developers. With the right kind of learning, guidance and mentorship, we have built a platform that speaks for itself.
“There are multiple data points to highlight our impact, and the one that stands out is that Amazon, one of the world’s largest tech companies, hired more from Scaler last year than all IITs combined.
“As we move forward, we want to do a lot more for our learners. Our vision for the future is to become the one place that every aspiring and growing engineer comes to improve not just professionally but also personally.
“Finding a partner is one of the turning stones in everyone’s lives, and we would love to be able to solve this for the thousands of engineers who become part of Scaler’s network,” Saxena said.
The team at FAANGShaadi.com meticulously curate and verify profiles and use an advanced, AI-powered (hand-tuned, GPT-3, trained on a massive dataset of 10,000 engineers) algorithm to match prospective alliances.
Candidates can also choose to search on their own, sorting hundreds of profiles based on YoE (years of experience), CTC, verified typing speed, preference for tab vs spaces for indentation, choice of code editors, ranking on popular coding websites and so on.
