About Urban Company

Founded in Nov 2014 by Abhiraj Bhal, Varun Khaitan and Raghav Chandra, Urban Company (formerly UrbanClap) is India and the UAE’s largest home services company. We are an all-in-one platform that helps users hire premium service professionals, from beauticians and masseurs to sofa cleaners, carpenters and technicians.

Job Description

The local and home services industry is very fragmented and unorganized. Prior to Urban Company, hiring a plumber, beautician, yoga trainer, math tutor etc. was a painful process. There were no standards, no concept of trust, pricing inefficiencies etc. In a nutshell, the industry was shackled in the “yellow pages” era, and had seen no fundamental innovation for far too long.

The Urban Company team is young and passionate, and we see a massive disruption opportunity in his industry. By leveraging technology, and a set of simple yet powerful processes, we wish to build a platform that can organize the world of services - and bring them to your finger-tips. We believe there is immense value (akin to serendipity) in bringing together customers and professionals looking for each other. In the process, we hope to impact the lives of millions of service entrepreneurs, and transform service commerce they way Amazon transformed product commerce.

Job Responsibilities

  • Manage a team of 20-25 on field sales associates
  • Analyse sales data to identify performance bottlenecks, devise corrective solutions and own implementation end-to-end
  • Hire and train new sales associates
  • Be the custodian for revenue growth in the city
  • Identify city-specific nuances which may aid or hamper city performance and devise solutions around them
  • Work with central team on key initiatives such as pricing, new service launches etc.

Job Requirements

  • Engineering degree from a tier-1 institution
  • Experience in managing sales or operations is a core requirement for this role
  • High degree of comfort on Excel and strong data analysis skills (vlookups, pivot tables should be the easiest tasks for you)
  • Work-ex: 1-3 years (please note this experience band is non-negotiable)
  • For Chennai operations, verbal and written proficiency of Tamil is a must
  • Ability to communicate fluently in English (written and verbal)
  • Familiarity with SQL (good to have)
  • Experience in a hyper growth start-up
  • Experience in managing small on-ground fleets

What can you expect?

  • A phenomenal work environment, with massive ownership and growth opportunities.
  • A high performance, high-velocity environment at the cutting edge of growth.
  • Strong ownership expectation and freedom to fail.

NOTE: The home painting business is an early stage category at Urban Company. This means that a lot of on-ground hustle and ownership are the necessities for this role. Work does stretch up to 12-13 hours per day and at times requires you to be on your toes 6 days of the week. Also, the candidate will be expected to be physically present in the location once the current situation normalizes.
