merit based opportunities. In the pursuit of excellence, Flipsters compete against themselves
because there is no competitor in the radar.

elastic storage, predictive analytics, fraud detection, inventory planning, supply chain, and large-
scale applications that enrich the user experience, to name a few. Working with the market leader,
engineers mostly solve challenges-never- seen-before. The environment makes receptive people
with open mind and a drive of ownership to succeed and create impact.The excitement gets further
