Upraised, that recently raised $1.3 million funding by tech entrepreneurs like Airbnb co-founder and CTO Nate Blecharcyzk, Kunal Shah (CRED), Vijay Shekhar Sharma (Paytm) as well as Lightspeed India and South Park Commons, has helped start-ups like MPL, CRED, Unacademy, Freshworks, and others hire the best tech talent.
“Covid has significantly sped up tech adoption across the country, and we are seeing a new unicorn startup every week. This has led to a rise in the need for skilled Product Managers at unicorn startups,” said Mona Gandhi, Founder of Upraised and a former Airbnb executive.
Among the unique offerings that Upraised has for its candidates is 100 percent job guarantee or else full refund.
