Qt job prospects in India



  • Hello everybody!

              I'm a student and a newbie to Qt. I really like the framework and would like to start my career with Qt. I'm currently looking for a job and it would be really helpful if someone could tell me some companies in India (preferably Bangalore) who work on Qt and also hire freshers. I'm really looking forward to working on Qt. I'm a Computer Science Post Graduate.
    

    Thanks!

    P.S. : I wasn't sure if posting this question in Qt India forum would be as effective as posting it here.

    EDIT: Sam suggested I go through "this":http://www.qtcentre.org/threads/12-Indian-Companies-Using-Qt If anyone has got more information, please do let me know.



  • enhaced ur skill ,,,,,
    and start as freelance programmer ....



  • Hi MuhamedAuda!

        I'm sorry but freelance is not an option for me right now. I'm looking for full time jobs. Would you be knowing of any? 


  • Moved to Jobs forum

    An excellent way to start is to get involved in open source projects. That will give you both experience and visibility, and the nice thing is: you're able to show off your code during job interviews. :-)



  • Hi Andre!

       That's a great tip! Thanks. Where do you think I should post these projects? I've made a couple of them but it's just lying around collecting dust.


  • Some open repository would work, but you'd have to make some noise around it as well. Also, I suggest you considder joining a more visible open source project of your liking.



  • Hmm. It's going to be hard. I'll give it a try anyway. Thanks Andre!



  • @ Andre very good advice, i only like to add that contributions to forums can also bring some extra points (and visibility) when recruiters search for candidates.

    Also, maybe you'll consider the mentor program from KDE interesting, you can read about it in this "page":http://community.kde.org/Getinvolved/development (scroll down a little), i didn't used it but i think is good to get involved in a really big project like KDE and it's good for them to support new developers that way. If you do get involved please share your opinions later ;)

    Very good tip as well!



  • Those are very interesting tips, thanks Holygirl, Andre and Zlatomir for those ideas. I will take a look at them when I had time.

    Regards.



  • @Zlatomir

          Thank you so much for the link. I'm going through the beginner's guide and although I'm quite new to the coding world, I'll try my level best to contribute good content.
    

    @BelenMunoz

          I just asked the question. Andre, Zlatomir and MuhamedAuda are the ones to be thanked :)
    

    P.S: I don't know what I would have done without this forum. The least I can do is recommed it to all my fellow Qt developers.



  • bq. An excellent way to start is to get involved in open source projects. That will give you both experience and visibility, and the nice thing is: you’re able to show off your code during job interviews. :-)

    Can anyone please provide links for open source projects based on Qt.

    thanks

    Better to start a seperate thread for this discussion, For now you can "check this":http://qt-project.org/wiki/Transition_from_Qt_4.x_to_Qt5
    "C++ API changes":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5.0/qtdoc/sourcebreaks.html



  • [quote author="surendar" date="1362983852"]i saw in google also... but no openings for freshers.....[/quote]

    Well, I'm a fresher too and it's hard to find openings just like that with the help of Google. Register yourself with some consultancy and see if they can help you. Which city are you in?



  • We're looking for juniors too, but not in India... Sorry.



  • For junior jobs i think you should look in local job websites or newspapers (or other media), because junior position are not "globalized"
    example: i'm a junior and lets say that i apply for Andre 's job: i'm not in Netherlands so to start work there i require some time to move, even after i move i will have a (longer than a senior) learning curve while i'm not contributing to the project, while a local candidate might be ready to start sooner and he might go for salary a less than mine (if he doesn't have to pay rent and other moving related expenses) there might be many more reasons to hire local junior, but i think i made my point.

    You can also look for internships - companies usually do those to find good candidates for junior positions (and training is included with internship) also advices for the original post can help you get some experience and that helps you later to get a paid job.
    Success in your career!



  • I have a new question, what experience is needed to be a senior developer in Qt?

    Regards!!



  • There are no absolute measures for that. Terms like "junior" "medior" and "senior" are used to indicate a rough indication of your experience and skills, but there are no fixed measures for it.

    In my opinion, a developer at senior level is able and can be trusted to make his own design decisions in a large project. He is able to coach other, less experienced developers. He also has the ability to maintain a good overview of what he is doing, how it relates to the rest of the project, and what is and isn't possible given the (time) constraints given. I'd say, you'd need about five years of working experience to reach that.



  • Thanks Andre, it's a very interesting answer!!

    Exactly! I started off with Qt as an intern in my company. I've been working on Qt for 3 months now and with much help from this community, the people at my office loved my work and they hired me as a junior developer. You can try that too surendar



  • Thanks Andre ! It's An Awesome Explanation .



  • Hi,

    Before continuing this, many thanks to Andre and Zlatomir and all who had given the tips. Really we should check the open source projects, It will surly improves our programming skill as it is the place of those genius programmers who have contributed their great works.

    For my Indian friends, defenitely you have to check naukri(www.naukri.com), monster(www.monsterindia.com), timesjobs ,shine and many more.

    Naukri and monster are the most popular one in my view. There are a large number of openings for both freshers and experienced in these job sites. Also as Sam told you, GOOGLE is a real friend. Just type Qt + programmer, it will show a lot of openings all over the world.

    For foreign search, i recommend you should check, jobstreet(www.jobstreet.com) and monster for countries like Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia , Thailand, Philippines and so on. For Australia, Newzealand, you should try seek(www.seek.com). For Gulf there are Bayt, NaukriGulf, monstergulf and so on.

    For Europe and North America, this forum is a very good place to find for jobs. There are others too, but i don't have much idea about this. But it is too difficult to get job in EU or US, as the main problem is getting visa to work in there.

    Anyway, we have to try hard to get a call from some company. As a fresher, it will take some time. Anyway the main thing is to

    become a "genius coder" by hardworking and so on.
    Any way good luck for your job search....

    Best Regards
    Ansif
