What you are about to view is a Dynamic CV that is online. Every staff you hire will work online on the web and on latest Cloud applications. Your majority of marketing & managment efforts will be Digital, so here please exprience this CV with that intention only, “Every thing is digital & online”.
First thing first; why should a modern company which Posts its Job offers online should receive resumes that are not online. Why Should one apply in the old format of preparing resumes on word and then converting them to pdf and sending them via email, when all the work that has to be done is to be done via HTTP and HTML.
So here is the most relevant resume in your inbox, made on HTML via use of PHP (not in .pdfs or .docs) on a live ecommerce site, editing is done by editing CSS and not by using space-bar or tabs in a word file.
Here you can experience the quality of my work & skills first hand.
About Me .:
I am ROHIT GANGWANI, Currenlty in am Co-Founder of the E-commerce Platform Pensandmore.in , It is a D2C brand for designer stationery items having own in house manufacturing facility.
Intention of Creating a application on the Web instead of the normal Word applications converted to Pdfs are .:
- Showcase the Relevant Skills applicable to position so as to save our time.
- Difference in the skill-sets and aptitude between a Founder of a Web based Business and a General Graduate applying for this job amongst many jobs.
- To Express my seriousness in applying as this application made on a webpage take much more time to make, rather than just editing the previous resume to some additional information.
I Started PENSANDMORE.IN , in August – 2019 with my co-founder Ms. Renu Chaudhari who is now my wife.
PENSANDMORE.IN is a Direct to Consumer Brand for Quirky & Designer Stationery products.
The Products you see on the Right are Designed and Manufactured by us and we used to sell them initially on AMAZON, FLIPKART, SNAPDEAL and other ecommerce multi vendor marketplaces and later on we Setup our on webiste to complete the loop of Direct to Consumer by also removing the third Party Marketplace.
My main resonsibilites at Pensandmore.in were
- Setting up of Website , The Technical Aspects and User interface Both.
- Handling all Graphic and Visual Requirements like editing of pictures and creating of Logos.
- Listing of products on website and other Marketplace Like Aamazon, Flipkart Etc.
- Preparing and Dispatching Orders
- Handling Customer Querries
- Managing Marketing and SEO both on site and off site.
- Most importantly Designing and Manufacturing these beautiful products.
- Complete ownership of Digital marketing on Social media platforms & Influencer marketing.
Why Drifting away from Pensandmore.in
The Target Audience for my products were School children & stationery show-offs in office envoirment.
Till 2019 end we had Devloped all our Physical products and got them Manufactured in Bulk including Packaging.
We were planning to go all out on marketing and Influencer marketing At the Start of BACK TO SCHOOL season of India, which was in March – April 2020, that’s when the most strictest lockdown was forced in INDIA due to COVID.
Schools were shut and have Shut since then, because we wanted to Focus on Quality and Exclusiveness of our products we had all the stock ready in Warehouse and we couldn’t sell them.
Our Capital Got Stuck there and Cost of Renting the Warehouse pushed us into losses specially as there were Negligible sales.
The Cashflow problems persist to the day as schools are still closed and we hold close to 15,000 Euro worth of stock in hand. This cash flow issues forced us to let some staff go and business started going south.
On Right you can see our Revenues in ZOHO as 976,000 INR or 11050 Euro, Note: From first date of the Accounts to Closing of Balance sheet, India was in Lockdown, Schools were Closed for the Complete period.
Considering that and being the First Year, this was an impressive Figure compared to Indian Market (Selling about 20,000 units) but sadly not enough for Scale of products we manufacture and hold in our stocks And the Committed Fixed Costs we have.
How I came Across your job opening.
As Mentioned Because of 16-17 month + lockdown, Sales of my Website suffered tremendously.
The Financial analyst in me always wanted to Diversify Location wise and my preferred 2nd location for sales was Europe. On doing some Research I came across ESTONIA and its very supportive policies for Business and Startups.
Plus I found that Tallin and Tartu had the best ecosystem for Startups such that it was being referred to as the Silicon Valley of Europe.
These and plus more research and watching more videos on Youtube, I had convinced myself that Estonia is the future of Startups, it is the Silicon Valley of the Europe, There and then me and my wife decided that if we were going to get employed again, it would only be in Estonia and no where else.
It was on the Official Estonian website WORKINESTONIA.COM that we came across your job opening.
