26 April, 2016, Bangalore: Just a week after hitting the exit door of Housing.com, co-founders Abhishek Anand, Sanat Ghosh and Ravish Naresh are set to float their new startup which will focus on human resource management.
Speaking about their new venture, Gosh said, “We want to leverage technology to bring the process of ‘recruiting’ completely online. By building a platform where we can help candidates and companies to discover, communicate and engage with each during the entire ‘recruiting’ process.” A 26 year old IIT Bombay graduate was the real brain behind the building of core team of Housing.com.
The trio has decided to move to the IT hub of the country, Bangalore to start their new innings. The three engineers have been working very closely on the project and are planning to take the curtains off from it very soon.
At the core of the solution, the three are looking to make use of semantic search, machine learning and big data to build the product. Meanwhile, Housing.com’s agony continues as out of 12 co-founders, nine have already taken an exit from the company. The company which came into the lime-light after the controversial exit of one of its co-founders Rahul Yadav, has been facing a tough run in the market.
Anand was responsible for scaling the technology team of over 200 at Housing and led its Data Science Labs (DSL) division. Naresh, 26, scaled Housing’s on-ground data collection model to top 20 cities and later built the sales teams, reports ET.
