Scaler acquires FAANGShaadi.com
The leading upskilling platform, Scaler acquires FAANGShaadi.com, a matrimonial site for software engineers working with Tech companies. Most of the engineers who are enrolled with Scaler are left with little time to date and while upskilling their tech skills they often complain of lower life satisfaction. While the pandemic has provided engineers to upskill themselves, it has also limited the chances of meeting their soulmates. Therefore, the acquisition of FAANGShaadi.com would help fulfill the 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.”
The team of FAANGShaadi.com verifies and curates profiles by using advanced, AI-powered (hand-tuned, GPT-3, trained on a massive dataset of 10,000 engineers) algorithm to match the alliances. Candidates can also search their matches themselves by sorting hundreds of profiles based on years of experience, verified typing speed, CTC, preference for tab vs spaces for indentation, ranking on popular coding websites, choice of code editors, and so on.
Scaler is a top ed-tech startup, backed by global investors like Sequoia Capital and Tiger Global.
