Chitravanshi will lead two avenues, B2B partnerships and careers. While the B2B charter will strengthen partnerships with leading technology companies in India as well as globally, the careers division works towards providing career outcomes for the learners.
He will work closely with the co-founders, Abhimanyu Saxena and Anshuman Singh, to strengthen the firm’s effort towards building strategic engagements with tech companies. He will be spearheading enterprise partnerships to deliver robust industry engagements for learners enrolled in various scaler programmes leading to opportunities for career development and successful transitions. Further, as the company expands career opportunities in Europe through ‘Scaler Neovarsity’, an online Master’s program in computer science, the enterprise team will work towards expanding the existing horizons of job opportunities to these newer areas and help the learners move to the next orbit in their careers.
“We see ourselves on a mission mode to transform the skill landscape in the technology industry. What we are doing provides the right skill pool for the industry and creates a level playing field for all serious-minded professionals. Ashish’s extensive experience across diverse sectors and his familiarity with entrepreneurship will help us accelerate the growth journey more ambitiously,” said Abhimanyu Saxena, co-founder, InterviewBit & Scaler.
“The organisation is in an exciting growth phase, and I am thrilled to play a part in its journey. It is a challenging but rewarding mandate that will create a large, self-serving, mutually beneficial ecosystem aimed at taking the tech sector to the next level,” said Chitravanshi.
In his prior roles, he has been a startup founder and has held leadership positions across leading e-commerce marketplaces, ed-tech and agri-tech organisations. He remains a startup enthusiast and an active angel investor with interests in SaaS and logistics spaces.
Scaler is backed by marquee global investors like Sequoia Capital India, Tiger Global and Lightrock India and has expanded its footprints across India and US.
