Home rental network NestAway Technologies has roped in Amazon’s finance head Sandeep Daga as its Chief Financial Officer and also announced the appointment of Ravindra Singh Rawat as its Vice President of Technology.

Sandeep has over 22 years of experience in consumer-facing business and has held key roles in developing and supporting sustainable growth for companies such as Amazon, Reliance Retail, Lifestyle International, ITC Ltd and Larsen and Toubro.

At Amazon, Sandeep was heading the Finance for food and retail business since October 2015. Ravindra is an alumnus of IIT Kharagpur and has 16 years of experience in tech engineering. He has worked with Zaloni, Xebia, RBS, and Globallogic. He was also associated with San Francisco based Bidgely.

"I am super excited to be part of NestAway, as it is well poised to leverage technology coupled with a customer-centric approach to solve the unstructured and unregulated rental housing market for the urban migrants. As NestAway continues to innovate and grow the home rental network, it is at the forefront to unlock huge growth potential to build affordable city housing,” Sandeep said in a statement.

Ravindra, on the other hand, has worked on creating a platform for smart meter data analytics, utilizing big data technologies and machine learning pipelines for energy data disaggregation.

"I am excited to join the young NestAway family, it is a very exciting opportunity to solve a real problem that all of us have faced when we started our careers. We plan to make rental experiences smoother and painless for both tenants and owners using technology. Our vision is to use data & algorithms to solve problems in the rental marketplace and drive data-driven decision making similar to other domains," Ravindra said in a statement.

In his new stint with NestAway, Ravindra will oversee the brand’s data platform and address the scaling needs of its products.

“The future of real estate technology is inputting data as the key intuition in all our decisions and Ravindra's experience in building world-class products using Artificial Intelligence and big data will strengthen our commitment to our customers to provide the best possible experience. He is going to oversee our data platform and the rapid scaling needs of our engineering products,” said Smruti Parida, Chief Technology Officer at NestAway.
