Upskilling platform Scaler by InterviewBit has appointed serial entrepreneur, Naren Krishna as the Business Unit Head of Career.
According to reports, Krishna will be responsible for managing the entire Career division with an aim to position Scaler as the preferred destination to recruit top engineering talent in the country.
He will be working with the founders, the operations team and peoples team to strengthen the relationship with leading technology organizations across the globe.
Krishna comes with 6 years of extensive experience in the recruitment field. He founded and scaled two unique HR-tech start-ups – Stockroom.io & Equiv.in, which enabled him to collaborate with over 100 Fortune500 companies helping them with their hiring as well as in organising diversity and inclusion initiatives.
He was also a founding member news website, Inc42, where he played an instrumental role in setting up the company’s operations.
Speaking on his new role, Naren Krishna said, “With almost six years of experience in the recruitment sector, I have first-hand faced the ‘lack of skilled engineers’ problem. I have seen InterviewBit and more recently Scaler helping countless young professionals to build sustainable career paths, and I feel they are onto something phenomenal. Working with them is, therefore a fantastic opportunity for me because I strongly feel that they have been able to build an impactful platform and I am looking forward to amplifying that further”.
He added, “One of the most critical challenges all the ed-tech players are facing today is translating the training outcomes into career outcomes. Providing our students with meaningful employment opportunities is a vital cog to complete the experience circle, ultimately making Scaler the perfect proposition for all the stakeholders. And that is what my focus will be.”
Commenting on the appointment, Abhimanyu Saxena, Co-Founder, InterviewBit & Scaler said, “We are developing Scaler as an inclusive ecosystem of engineers and mentors to help talent scale and build the next generation of global tech leaders. India has such a vast and diverse talent pool, but they need quite a bit of grooming and channelling in the right direction”.
Saxena continued, “While we have a super strong skilling module in place, Naren will be able to help us scale the recruitment efforts to the next level. He is talented, driven, has the experience of how things work in a start-up environment, and we firmly believe that our synergies are aligned. Together, we are looking forward to making Scaler a more compelling proposition for all parties involved.”
