Online home service provider Housejoy has appointed Flipkart’s Saran Chatterjee as its chief executive officer (CEO), where he will help the company expand in terms of services offered and cities present in.
Prior to joining Housejoy, Chatterjee was with Flipkart as VP of product management and a key part of the leadership team for close to three years.
“I am very excited about working in the home services industry and joining Housejoy — which is already the leader in this space. The on demand home services industry today is what e-commerce was in 2007-2008. The market is huge but unorganised and that presents the opportunity to organise and upscale the supply in this sector,” said Chatterjee.
The company that claims to have more than 4,000 orders a day, provides professional servicemen for plumbing, electrical appliances, computer repairs, etc. In less than a year, the company is present in nine cities.
Arjun Kumar, co-founder, Housejoy, said, “We are thrilled to have Saran on board and feel his product & technology expertise can help in creating innovative operational methods
for Housejoy which will lead to better consumer experience.”
