KiranaKart is Mumbai’s fastest-growing instant grocery delivery app with plans to expand nationally soon! We’re building a better model in this space with faster deliveries, stronger unit economics, and 100% inventory accuracy.
We’re a Y Combinator startup, backed by Nexus Venture Partners and some of the most respected investors in Silicon Valley and India and have raised 7-10 million USD (currently in stealth mode).
Our founders are former Stanford students who returned to India once KiranaKart started taking off. Besides a bunch of credentials, we’re young, ambitious, and we get shit done quickly. We're now building a new product from scratch and recruiting rockstar engineers & designers to join our core team.
What We're Looking For
You believe in craftsmanship and create elegant and compelling designs, over and over. Your portfolio has some best-in-class work.
You have designed at least one mobile application from scratch and you're a walking encyclopedia of micro-interactions in use across different mobile applications and have nuanced views on how to make many of them even better.
You've proven experience of 4.5+ years of experience in the industry.
You are a creative leader. You have the ability to cultivate a shared understanding of the user-centred approach between the Design, Content, Product, and Engineering team.
You've shipped products. You've weathered release cycles and know what details matter at each stage, how to motivate engineers to get the fit and finish right, how to translate insights from user studies into meaningful action, and what's most likely to go afoul at each stage.
You substantially contribute to defining the 'what' as well as the 'how'. You're a product manager's secret weapon.
You thrive best when helping to define the requirements, not just translating them into designs. You facilitate and draw the best design ideas from teammates.
Prototyping is a key part of your toolset. You've prototyped on multiple platforms. You've made last-minute tweaks between user studies. You know how to be all kinds of quick and dirty, but dream of better prototyping tools.
Cross-platform is your style. Hopefully, you've shipped something across several platforms. You know what translates from desktop and what doesn't, or why you'd opt for one solution for iOS and another on Android.
Communication skills. You've good communication skills and can effectively communicate your ideas to the stakeholders.
Why Work Here?
Besides the experience, excitement, and career boost that comes with working at a rocketship Y Combinator startup, there are also major hard benefits to joining KiranaKart. We offer a competitive salary and equity compensation with significant upside.
We are looking for someone that dreams of disrupting an industry instead of working at a large corporation for 25+ years. You would be building and making product decisions that will impact hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of real users.
In the process, you will be able to build strong connections with investors, successful founders, and mentors. These relations would be incredibly helpful to anyone with aspirations to be a startup founder in the future.
