About Nitin

Do you get excited working with not just trendy web & mobile development stacks, but also the prospect of innovating solution that solves “world hunger”… If you do, we share the same itch!! Okay, I am not really solving that. But, I am doing something awesome...

I am Nitin Jain (an ex-IBMer, MIT Sloan MBA, 15+ years in hi-tech and a successful startup exit), CEO and co-founder of SproutUp.co - a DC-based startup. At SproutUp, we are two co-founders who recently left their cushy corporate jobs aiming to develop a deeper connection between emerging product creators and product consumers/ enthusiasts. 

SproutUp is redefining commerce for emerging products (e.g. those funded on Kickstarter, Indiegogo and the likes) offering new ways for creators to grow user base, improve products and commercialize. Leveraging the power of sharing economy, we enable a community-oriented marketplace where consumers and innovation enthusiasts experience emerging products and eventually turn into real buyers. We are excited to be working with early adopters - already highly successful crowdfunding campaign projects and are continue to expand our customer base.
 
While we are busy building, we're in need of a passionate, smart, hands-on and self-driven Engineering Director to be part of our core team. As an Engineering Director, you’ll be working on Full Stack to design, build, deploy and manage our web & mobile applications using a variety of technologies/frameworks including Play/Java, Angular.js, MySQL, PhoneGap, AWS and a few others based on your expertise & recommendations.

As an early team member, you’ll be budding with the co-founders, interacting closely with our early adopters and learning from our expert pool of advisors (MIT academia and leading Industry experts). And yes, you’ll receive the early hire perks too!!

Interested and ready for challenge? Please hit me on CofoundersLab or connect via our website www.sproutup.co in the "Team" section.
