Soma Capital Portfolio Jobs

Project Manager



Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
Posted on Wednesday, September 6, 2023

About Us: At (a Y-Combinator startup), there is an anomaly in the world that retailing via physical stores is still very complex. You can set up your web store in hours, but setting up a physical store is very complex and littered with ad-hoc choices. We are building a plug-and-play expansion solution for retail chains which will digitize the supply chain of materials, and labor and also allow expanding retailers to track their projects with the click of a button. In this pursuit, we have built more than 1000+ stores for 50+ brands in India, and plan to start delivering 500 stores every month in the next 12 months. We are not stopping at just building stores, our plan is to create a system to manage the store throughout its life cycle. Brands should be able to buy equipment (Racks, Mannequins, Kitchen equipment), hire and manage manpower, and maintain the store with a single laptop.

“We are building an operating system for physical retailing!”. It is a $1Tn market opportunity globally.
