Logging out from makaan.com

Now when i am logging off as a product manager for makaan.com after two and a half year, i am tempted to peep into the past and relive some of the moments that i’ll cherish for life. My session with makaan begins with an email request (typical web 2.0 style) to aditya verma (business head & vp, makaan.com ) and i got the invite to join in the core team to build a real estate portal.

day 1 @ makaan - 01 march 2007 lappy

First day @ makaan                         My Laapy

We started out with a small team in a makeshift office in south extn before moving to beautiful building in gurgaon.  We started in a typical start-up environment with a daunting task of going commercial in the least possible time. But this gave me a rare opportunity to work and understand every aspect of setting up a new business and felt like an entrepreneur.

The proud moment arrived on August 15, 2007 when we formally launched makaan.  I lived so many sweet and sour experiences during  my stay with makaan. Few of them become part of my blog and can be read below and rest will stay etched in my memory for ever.

– Offsite visit with makaan tech team (& family) to Chamba, Tehri dam and Mussorie.

– Endless wait in aircrafts for takeoff.
– I become a jealous economy class traveler (I pass it of as austerity).
– Been an alien in my own country.
– I spend a night at airport terminal.
– Completes 1 year @ Makaan
– Offsite to daman with software team
– Launch of makaan mobile application
– Launch of makaan 2.0
– Offsite to karjat with product team
