I have joined Delivery Hero!

  ·  2 min read


Super excited to share that I have joined Delivery Hero SE and relocated to Berlin, Germany. For the next chapter of my career, I will be helping shape ordering experiences of multiple food delivery and Q commerce apps.

Two years in rewind

For the last two years I had been building Paytm’s chat-based payment experience. Working on a brand like Paytm is super awesome and challenging at the same time. Paytm operates at a huge scale and recently they did the biggest IPO in the history of India.

Over a span of 2 years, I helped shape up their entertainment verticals like movies, event and amusement park ticketing before moving on to architect the chat based payment flows.

If you use Paytm, you will now be able to pay directly to anyone through a chat option, enabling communication in full Whatsapp style, sending and receiving money through various payment modes like UPI, Wallet and direct bank transfers via NEFT and IMPS.

The adoption of Paytm is increasing day-by-day and it is truly a super-app with a decade old history.

Great companies are built by great products! - Elon Musk

I’ll add to the quote and say —

Great products are built by brilliant engineering and product teams.

I was fortunate enough to experience both while working on Paytm.


Moving to Berlin

Berlin, Germany's capital city is truly a sight to behold! It's wonderful with rich history and is aptly called the city of reunification.

Berlin, Germany’s capital city is truly a sight to behold! It’s wonderful with rich history and is aptly called the city of reunification. Berlin is a growing market with top tech companies moving their headquarters to the city and it is attracting talents from all around the world.

Moving to a different city can be hard for any working individual, specially if you are moving entirely to a different country. It brings a set of challenges, everything is new, the people, the climate, rules & regulations etc.
