Rajat Singhal is CTO at Hitwicket - cricket manager game, a product of Octathorpe Web Consultants Pvt. Ltd. Right after graduation from college (B.Tech CSE) he joined the startup as a software developer and as first employee.
Octathorpe is a bootstrapped startup, initially it had both web services work and Hitwicket, but later after fund-raising shifted full focus to Hitwicket’s development. Hitwicket is a cricket management game, in which a user plays the role of a cricket club owner, and manages his club in the multiplayer universe. Every aspect of real world cricket, including a live match, is simulated using Artificial intelligence. Millions managers play the game.
Other than the wide range of tech experience from architecting Hitwicket and service projects, being in a startup from its earliest days to the multi-million-dollar-club days gives him a great deal of knowledge and experience with recruitment, management, product, monetization, marketing and growth hacking etc.
He is said to be allergic to miscommunications, bad code, BS and all things shallow. 'POA' is his trigger-word. "Roll up the sleeves and get it done" is the motto he follows.
