E-commerce major Snapdeal has announced the appointment of Viraj Chatterjee as Vice President, Engineering. In his new role, Viraj will lead the technology development solutions to enrich the overall seller experience on the marketplace.

Prior to his appointment at Snapdeal, Viraj spent 16 years at Adobe Systems where he most recently served as Director Engineering leading the Acrobat and Flash Runtime line of products. Viraj's stint with the Adobe team was focussed on Product Management, Engineering and building powerful products across Desktop and Mobile which included the Adobe Reader and Acrobat.

Snapdeal recently launched Snapdeal Plus and Capital Assist to further enhance the ability of small and medium businesses to sell on its platform. Viraj will play a pivotal role in strengthening the overall seller platform and introducing newer products backed by strong technology solutions.

Snapdeal co-founder Rohit Bansal said, “Our goal is to create one million successful online entrepreneurs within the next three years and our seller interface will play a key role in enabling this. It is crucial to equip sellers with the necessary infrastructure and Viraj with his rich experience and deep understanding of consumer facing tech products will provide the right impetus to building the best products for our sellers. We are delighted to have Viraj on board and wish him a great journey ahead with the Snapdeal family.”

Speaking about his appointment, Viraj said, “I am particularly excited about the company's vision of creating one million successful online entrepreneurs within the next three years. My main focus would be on strengthening the technology interface and building products that will enable our sellers to bring scale and efficiency in their business across the mobile and web platform.”

The technology team at Snapdeal is currently 1000 people strong and the company looks at doubling it by the end of this year. (SH)
