Rupeek appoints Amazon’s Japan Doshi as head of product, engineering and data science

BENGALURU: Asset backed lending startup Rupeek has announced the appointment of Japan Doshi as the head of product, engineering and data science, said a statement issued today. Doshi joins Rupeek after 10 years at e-commerce giant Amazon.

As a director for software development, Doshi was leading payments engineering for Amazon India in his most recent role. He helped the company build industry-leading payment experience in India, helping scale Amazon Pay to serve millions of customers. He has helped build multiple other businesses for Amazon including Appstore for Fire TV, Cloud Photos and Recommendations during his tenure at Amazon. Prior to Amazon, he spent a couple of years at GlaxoSmithKline in various technology roles.

In his new role at Rupeek, he will be responsible for driving product and technology strategy to build India’s first digital lending platform for asset backed loans. Doshi brings years of experience in building strong teams and his appointment is a major step for the company to strengthen its product and engineering across all areas including customer experience, core lending, logistics and fulfilment, infrastructure, security and data science functions.

He comes on board with the mandate to ensure a seamless working of system stability, environment sanity, developer productivity along with enabling faster detection and resolution of defects.

Doshi will report directly to Rupeek’s founder and CEO Sumit Maniyar.

“We have been extensively investing in technology and building a robust technological backbone by bringing onboard world-class talent. Japan’s role will be critical in steering the next phase of growth for us by building efficiencies in our tech infrastructure,” Maniyar said.

Doshi’s appointment follows other key leaders who have joined Rupeek in the last couple of quarters as the company has been strengthening its leadership team across all domains. Key leaders include Srivatsan Sridhar (ex-Mckinsey, ex-Ola) who joined Rupeek as the head of new initiatives and business; and Anand Raj, ex-Flipkart as the head of sales and operations.

Rupeek has raised $60 million from GGV Capital, Binny Bansal, Bertelsmann India Investments, Sequoia Capital, Accel Ventures, Tanglin Venture Partners and KB Investments Co.
