Classplus, a mobile platform for educators and content creators to launch their online teaching businesses, has appointed Manish Chawla as the new CTO to bolster its next phase of growth across geographies. Chawla, who was VP of Engineering with online food delivery startup Zomato previously, will lead Classplus’ product innovations and will be focusing on scaling engineering capabilities for Classplus’ growth. He has previously led industry-first tech innovations at high growth startups like MakeMyTrip, PayTM, and Dream11 among others over a career spanning nearly two decades.

“Classplus has built a phenomenal ecosystem for educators, and is playing a pivotal role in democratizing education and making it more accessible. Keeping technology as a front-runner, I look forward to helping drive growth, delivering product innovation along with customer success at a global scale. Given my passion for engineering and the deep belief in the Indian startup ecosystem, I am super excited to hop on the Classplus rocket-ship. It’s an awesome time to be joining the journey to co-create Classplus.” said Chawla in a statement.

“I, along with the entire leadership team at Classplus, are thrilled to have a seasoned engineering leader like Manish join our clan. Manish brings a wealth of knowledge and years of leadership experience to the team. Classplus is a product first company and we are confident that his expertise in scaling tech and product led companies will take Classplus to the next level and fuel our mission of empowering educators with a world class tech solution.” commented Bhaswat Agarwal, Co-Founder and COO, Classplus.

As of Jan 2022, nearly 20% of Classplus’ workforce is a part of the engineering and product teams with 50+ open positions including software developers, engineering and product managers, designers, and data scientists across entry to senior-levels.  Classplus has shown a spurred growth in the last 18 months by raising 4 rounds of funding in that duration alone and enabled a digital identity for 100,000 teachers who are using the platform to teach 25M+ students across 3000+ cities in India. They raised $65 million in a Series C round led by Tiger Global, GSV Ventures, and Alpha Wave Global in June 2021. Very recently, they also opened a new engineering office in Abu Dhabi, UAE to steer their international expansion.
