Lamudi.pk (http://www.lamudi.pk/) organized a blogger meet up in Islamabad on the 8th of October at Chaaye Khana restaurant in Islamabad. It was a meet and greet session of the bloggers with Lamudi’s Country Director, Saad Arshed.
The main aim of the event was to brief the bloggers about Lamudi’s phenomenal success over its two years of operation in Pakistan and introduce them to its Google-inspired work culture. Saad gave a presentation to the bloggers about Lamudi’s achievements and its open work environment.
The accomplishments included Lamudi’s launch of Android and iOS apps in June 2014, which have been downloaded over 535,000 times since. Other milestones achieved included its launch of a quarterly property magazine, conducting regular real estate empowerment programs across different cities of Pakistan and lastly the launch of its new developments section on the website.
Saad also shed light on Lamudi’s employee-centric work culture, which according to him, is the ingredient behind Lamudi’s growth and makes it different from more traditional work places. Other perks of working at Lamudi include being entitled to unlimited snacks, access to TV while working, monthly entertainment dinners and much more.
The bloggers were also briefed about Lamudi’s strong backing by Rocket Internet and how its expertise has allowed Lamudi to conquer the local online real estate marketplace. This was followed by an interactive session where the bloggers could ask Saad anything about the property portal, its journey from a startup to a full grown business and the future of the tech industry in Pakistan. The hashtag for the meet up was #asklamudi.
It ended with a delicious à la carte dinner and a photo session of the bloggers with the Lamudi team. Overall, it was a fun-filled evening and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
