Madhusudan will work towards crafting a better user experience for Apna’s communities, which helps skilled workers interact and learn from each other. On Friday, jobs platform Apna.co declared the selection of former Sharechat executive Mithun Madhusudan as the head of product – communities as the firm seems to support its leadership team.
As part of his fresh role, Madhusudan will craft a better user experience for Apna’s communities, supporting skilled workers interacting and learning from each other. In his former role at Sharechat, Madhusudan started live audio chat rooms and turned it into a large revenue-generating business within 12 months.
“Mithun brings with him an in-depth understanding of consumers and industry best practices. We will leverage his expertise in crafting a greater user experience as we build for the world. He will play a pivotal role in strengthening apna’s communities and help us drive our mission of #AcceleratingIndia,” stated Karthik Manivannan, chief operating officer of Communities at apna.
An alumnus of IIT Kharagpur and IIM Bangalore, Madhusudan has worked over multiple verticals and produced content products that concentrate on content creation, content discovery, personalization, and chat rooms. His expertise lies in improving consumer experience through video, social, content, and mobile innovations, the company said in a statement.
“Apna has been playing an important role in solving the earth-scale problem of skilling and unemployment. Apna communities is a critical part of solving this at scale and allow the rising workforce to connect with peers, showcase their work, share ideas and opportunities with each other. The communities are also helping them create their digital professional identity,” stated Madhusudan.
In September, Apna turned unicorn after raising $100 million as part of its Series C round begun by existing investor Tiger Global Management. The new round also viewed investments from Owl Ventures, Insight Partners, Sequoia Capital India, Maverick Ventures and GSV Ventures.
