Head, Product(Web) Meri Awaaz

Aug'14-present

Working as Head of Product(Web) Development at a start up by Mutiny Labs. Meri Awaaz is India's first platform that Connects Citizens with their Netas and Government officials for Open, Accessible and Accountable Governance. It is mobile-first realtime public engagement tool that makes catching up with the work being done in your area as easy as following up your timeline. The platform creates a win-win situation for all sides by helping government departments and candidates understand the current issues in an area and connect with the local pulse. Netas also find a medium to connect with their electorate and showcase their work, thus incentivizing Development and Issue based politics. The platform also provides an easy way to manage a volunteer team to help resolve issues faster. I lead the development and maintenance of this dashboard used by government officials and netas.
