Thanks for stopping by

I am Tej Pochiraju, PhD - an iterative product developer based in Bangalore, India. I have worked on over 50 product development projects with over half reaching (& surviving!) the market. Teams I have been lucky enough to work with include numerous nimble startups and SMEs as well market-leaders such as Social Alpha, Meghshala, Joovv and Datamars.

I love building new products that increase productivity and improve communication. Stints in academia, corporates and startup-land have allowed me to work across technology readiness levels.

See a full classification of the projects here. You can also download my 1 page resume (PDF).

Organisations I run

  • Jaaga Labs: We build scalable solutions to specific problems. These solutions are then spun off into independent entities. See IoTReady and ContentReady.
  • Jaaga Study: Building product builders through bootcamps, apprenticeships and hands-on projects.
  • Jaaga Startup: Curated, affordable coworking for entrepreneurs open to collaborative skill sharing.

Beliefs / Methodology

  • Need > Idea > Technology
  • Frugal iterations beat 2 year plans.
  • Build products. And product builders.
  • Contribute to open source while protecting core business value.
  • Skills are the unit of collaboration.
