Housejoy appoints ex Flipkart exec as CEO

Home services provider start-up, Housejoy, planning rapid expansion into more cities and services, has appointed Saran Chatterjee, the former vice-president of product management at Flipkart, as its new chief executive officer.

On his appointment, Chatterjee said, “I am very excited about working in the home services industry... The on-demand home services industry today is what e-commerce was in 2007-2008. The market is huge but unorganised and that presents the opportunity to organise and upscale the supply in this sector”.

The on-demand hyperlocal services market has attracted a huge interest from both investors and entrepreneurs. Housejoy competes with players like Timesaverz, LocalOye, TaskBob and Qyk, among others. 

In less than a year after inception, Housejoy has had about 800,000 bookings till date, with about 4,000 orders a day. The company provides services ranging from maintenance and home repairs to high quality plumbing, electrical, computer repairs and also specialised services in beauty and in-house bridal make-up. It has presence across nine cities.
