ShipBob today announced the launch of its Technology Innovation Hub in New Delhi, India, the first of its kind outside of the United States. In conjunction with the opening of the new technology hub, ShipBob also announced the hiring of Pramod Jajoo as SVP, Technology and Country Head. Jajoo will lead ShipBob’s expansion in India while overseeing all technology advancements the company will undertake in the country.
Jajoo brings over 30 years of diverse experience to the role at companies like Flipkart and BigBasket. Prior to ShipBob, he was a mentor and advisor to select startups and corporates, and is actively involved as an angel investor in the Indian startup ecosystem. He has been a mentor to Nasscom’s Deep Tech Club (DTC) startups for the past four years. He previously served as a Senior Vice President at Flipkart, where he managed product and technology teams for Flipkart’s Fulfillment Services Group. He was also the Chief Technology Officer for BigBasket since its inception to scale.
“I am excited about joining a group of people who are extremely passionate about the power of technology to bring a world-class fulfillment experience for our global ecommerce brands. I am also excited to lead ShipBob’s India hub that will be talent-centric, helping build the most innovative products for streamlining the supply chain for our customers,” said Jajoo.
Over the next few years, ShipBob plans to recruit over 150 technology professionals in India, in the areas of engineering, product management, platforms, data sciences and analytics. ShipBob will continue to bring its remote-first philosophy to the market in India, as the company believes that flexibility in where you work enables their people to perform their best both at work and at home.
“Some of the world’s finest technology and entrepreneurial talent is based out of India, and we are very excited to launch our first Technology Innovation Hub outside the United States to tap into this talent pool,” said Harshal Wanjari, Chief Technology Officer at ShipBob. “The initiatives executed out of our India hub will service our global base of ecommerce brands and fulfillment partners, enabling their scale both in the US and internationally. We are also thrilled to welcome Pramod to ShipBob’s leadership team. Pramod’s experience will be instrumental in further expanding ShipBob’s technology capabilities to meet the needs of the supply chain landscape and help us provide merchants around the world with fast and affordable supply chain, fulfillment and logistics products.”
