About Smart Trigger and Flows Team

Team is responsible for analysing billions of events done by millions of users, as they do, and run a set of predefined campaigns on them and calculate real time click/conversion stats on the engagements by MoEngage suite of products.

We process, in real time, more than 1 Billion events a day. On an average day we send more than 10 million Intelligent push notifications through our systems and build stats for them, all in real time. Processing Speed is super critical to everything we do, because we can’t send “Your breakfast is here” message in the afternoon. We have to build and evolve products keeping this in mind.

As a team member, you will be constantly challenged to save those extra milliseconds and nanoseconds from your processing time. You will have to design and build robust systems which can sustain sudden spikes of 5x without showing any processing delay or abnormal behaviour. We are a small and close-knit team, we believe in learning and growing together.
