Jumbotail ecosystem has 4 in-house, proprietary platforms - B2B online marketplace, Supply Chain & Logistics, Fintech for SME Lending, and Retail platform that powers its J24 branded convenience grocery stores.

We have a strong and passionate team who is motivated to solve real world problems and impact lives. Our team consists of alumni from Stanford, IITs, IIMs, BITS, ISB and top NITs, having several years of industry experience in leading companies like Flipkart, Amazon, ebay, BCG, McKinsey, Housing, Microsoft, ITC and Grofers.

Jumbotail is at an inflection point - Covid-19 has brought Kiranas (its core customer segment) the attention that their >95% share of India's food and grocery market rightfully merits. In parallel, it has exposed the frailties of traditional wholesale and FMCG distribution as well as those of large format modern trade. Retailers and brands alike, are seeking a reliable, resilient, 21st century alternative. Jumbotail is well positioned to capture this market opportunity and become an indispensable part of India's $600 billion food and grocery retail market.

While our market potential is huge - in the order of hundreds of billions of dollars, the opportunity requires us to solve challenging problems that are so unique to India that copycat models will not work. We are putting our customers first and building technologies, products, platforms and services, and cutting edge supply chains that will work for the next billion Indians who have fundamentally different needs - access, language, selection, supply chain, financial and cultural.

The work you will do at Jumbotail will impact real lives and bring a lasting positive change for the next billion people of India. We promise a fun, fast paced ride with some of the smartest people, with opportunities to learn and grow, and leave a legacy.
