Rentsher, a leading online product rental marketplace, is focused on taking its technology-driven platform to the next level in terms of providing a matchless user-experience. Driven by this vision, the company has announced the appointment of Anubha Verma, a leading technology and product engineer, as its Chief Technology Officer for its global operations. Anubha will be a critical contributor to Rentsher’s expansion, as the company plans to develop a more seamless and mobile-friendly platform with a view to enhancing its user-friendliness.

Anubha is a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, where she completed the integrated 5-year MTech degree in Computer Science and Engineering in 2008. She began her professional career as Member of Technical staff at VMWare, working on the pioneering Cloud Computing team. She joined IBM Research in 2009, initially working on high-impact projects for IT service delivery automation initiatives before joining the company’s Smarter Energy Research Group. She then joined Google where she worked for 4 and a half years on various critical projects in Google Cloud Platform as a Senior Software Engineer. Anubha’s association with RentSher goes back to 2015, where she had helped incubate the idea as a Peer2peer rental platform as Investor Director of the company, while she continued her role at Google. As the company scales up across geographies, Anubha is taking over the global role as CTO.

At Rentsher, Anubha will be instrumental in addressing core tech issues, eliminating bottlenecks, and driving the development of a more user-friendly digital interface. She will leverage her experience and expertise in driving the development of cutting-edge and innovative technology solutions to helm Rentsher’s platform in new directions. In the short-term, she intends to add more payment channels to the platform and make it more mobile-friendly. In the longer term, Anubha will look to create the foundation for a technology-enabled ecosystem that provides greater functionality and convenience to vendors and customers alike.

“Our focus has been on becoming a category-leader in an industry that is destined to become the new way that people use products – through sharing and rentals. As such, one of our largest barriers to growth is making the interactions between various stakeholders more seamless,” Harsh Dhand, Founder & CEO, Rentsher, said, adding that Anubha’s drive for optimal, dynamic, and innovative solutions and systems is a great fit for our goals. We look forward to working with her to create the next iterations of our platform, which will push the envelope in terms of making the experience of customers and vendors as spectacular as possible.”

Anubha Verma, CTO, Rentsher, added, “I am delighted to join the very talented team of RentSher, and look forward to working here and take the company’s remarkable journey forward. At RentSher, I have the mandate of making the company’s incredibly successful platform even more compelling with a view to optimize user experience, increase revenue, and find greater synergy between the technological and human aspects of this business. The leadership at RentSher is admirably committed to accelerating the company’s growth, and I hope to contribute meaningfully to this commitment by enhancing the experience the platform offers to its customers and vendors.”

With over 3 years of experience in providing rental equipment for a wide variety of needs, RentSher has become India and the Middle East’s best destination for short-term rentals. The company has been engaged in an aggressive expansion spree, and with Anubha’s appointment, it looks to create a strong technological foundation to cater to the company’s rapidly-increasing user base.
