Job description

Our Story So Far

Twelve years back, Lenskart was started by a 26-year old entrepreneur - because he wanted to solve the problem of preventive blindness. We had humble beginnings - we spread awareness about eyecare, we took orders for eyeglasses online and shipped them to customers from a warehouse that was the size of a modern-day conference room.

As of today, little by little, Lenskart has served 40 Million people across the globe - helping them see better and lead better quality lives. Simultaneously, we’ve also built ourselves up to be Asia’s largest eyewear company. We have 10,000+ Lenskartians worldwide, more than 1500 omnichannel stores across 175 cities in India, Singapore and Dubai and cut to 2022 - we are shipping a pair of eyewear every 2.5 seconds, from the world’s most automated eyewear factory!

Our Investors

Our Co-Founder & CEO - Peyush Bansal

Peyush Bansal’s entrepreneurship journey started in 2010 with the launch of Lenskart along with few more business lines catering to different product markets. However, he was strongly inclined towards the glaring yet unaddressed problem of vision correction in India and the world. Within 12 years of Lenskart's inception, Peyush has pivoted the brand to become the most recognizable and geographically diverse omnichannel marketplace brand for eyewear in Asia.

As an avid investor in upcoming startups, Peyush focuses on three core areas - Tech for Good, Sustainability & Large-scale Solutions. ‘Good is not good enough’ is a dictum that lies at the core of his beliefs and journey as a Founder since the beginning

Our aim is to serve One Billion eyes by 2025 globally. And in this journey, we want to go beyond vision correction to transform the way people see and experience the world. That’s our new purpose - and we can only get there through cutting-edge technology and exceptional people.

To realize this vision in the next 5 years, Lenskart’s strategic focus areas are technology, supply chain & manufacturing, talent density and consumer experience. We will also focus our efforts on international expansion, M&A, and taking a bet on entrepreneurial talent. Lenskart aims to be the best global company born out of India - a successful and sustainable organisation that continues to serve its purpose in the years to come.
