Lead National - Research & Development/Quality Control - Appliances/FMCD Rental Firm (4-6 yrs)

Bangalore/Karnataka Job Code: 37535

About the Company :

- We, RentoMojo, were founded by IITM alums and serial entrepreneurs who worked out of almost every major city in India in the first five years of their corporate career. Frustrated with the hassles of relocating from one place to the other, and tired of finding that perfect cluster of home essentials that suited their lifestyle.

- The spending youth, especially the millennials & Gen Z's prefer staying light, desire flexibility and are value-conscious. Willing to experiment with new stuff across categories that make life simpler and not boring, these generations are also sensitive to our planet's sustainability. Our customers and employees identify with what we do '', is what Geetansh Bamania, our Founder and CEO has to say.

- RentoMojo caters to the needs of working professionals which are unmet due to the nonavailability of furnished rental flats by offering furniture and appliances on a rental basis, thus, providing more flexibility than owning expensive furniture and appliances.

- Currently, we have 100,000+ subscribers with a typical rental period of 1214 months. The current market size (as per a recent report by Grant Thornton) is estimated to be US$ 4.1 Billion and expected to grow to US$ 13 Billion by 2025.

- With 700+ people in operations, the company has a presence in 16 cities across India. Looking back, Rentomojo has not only made a new market of leases that never existed for the consumer, they have also become the market leader in the consumer rental industry. Unlike the norm, they are now seeing a reverse trend wherein a version of ours is being copied in the US and UK. We are also profitable at monthly PAT since Oct 2021.
