Mumbai youth lands Rs 1.2 crore job at Google's London office
MUMBAI: Abdullah Khan (21) may have failed to crack the entrance for IITs, but he has bagged an offer that many IITians would envy. Early this week, Khan landed a job at Google's London office, for a package of Rs 1.2 crore. The average salary offered to a graduate from a non-IIT engineering college in the city is around Rs 4 lakh pa.
Khan, a student of Shree LR Tiwari Engineering College, Mira Road, was called for an interview by Google on the basis of a profile on a site that hosts competitive programming challenges.
阿卜杜拉·汗是Shree LR Tiwari工程学院的一名学生。在某网站上发布个人简介后，受谷歌邀请参加面试。该网站主办竞争激烈的编程挑战。
After a few online interviews, Khan was asked to appear for the final screening at Google's office in London early this month.
His six-figure package includes the base salary of Rs 54.5 lakh (£60,000) per annum, 15 per cent bonus and stock options worth Rs 58.9 lakh ($85,000) over four years. Khan, who is doing his final year BE (computer science), will join Google's site reliability engineering team in September.
An email from a Google official in November last year mentioned that they had seen Khan's profile on the programming site, and said they were looking for people for locations across Europe.
Khan told TOI he was not expecting such an offer when he participated in competitions on that site. "I used to participate as it was fun. I did not even know that firms check programmers' profiles on such sites. I showed the email to my friend who knew someone who had received such an email in the past. I am looking forward to joining their team. It will be an amazing learning experience for me," said Khan. The coding junkie did his schooling in Saudi Arabia and moved to Mumbai only after Class XII.
