Tech Talent Migrates to Collaboration Startups as Hybrid Work Comes Into Its Own
Ashish Aggarwal, a former director of software development at Amazon.com Inc., co-founded software startup Productiv Inc. in 2018.
“The decision to leave when I did felt like a natural evolution for me,” Mr. Aggarwal said of leaving Amazon to start Productiv, which makes a tool that has helped enterprise IT chiefs track the use of business apps by remote workers.
Besides, the shift offered a chance to channel his skills and experience into building a product that aims to solve a real-world problem, said Mr. Aggarwal, who is CTO at Productiv.
“As a technologist, I am driven by tough problems that can be improved by technology,” he said.
