Prior to joining Housejoy, Chatterjee was with Flipkart as VP of Product Management and also a key part of the company’s leadership team for three years. At FlipKart, he played a key role in scaling the company’s strategy, setting up and hiring the product management, design and operations org, heading the consumer experience and platforms teams and running P&L for the advertising business.
“I am very excited about the home services industry and joining Housejoy – which is already the leader in this space. Still early days in this challenging sector but the market is large and that presents the opportunity to organise the supply and shape the customer experience,” Chatterjee said.
He further added, “The crucial piece here is in meeting or exceeding the customers’ expectations and in the process building the confidence and trust in their minds towards the Housejoy services and brand.
Chatterjee was also with Yahoo for about six years in various roles, including senior director for global product management, business management and operations director, among others, the statement said.
