About RajSoftware engineer, award-winning digital marketer, and entrepreneur, Raj wears many hats but his vast experience is what sets him apart from peers. Raj started his career interning at Department of Labor, where he helped build digital HR tools for the Office of Inspector General. He quickly understood his calling & ambition would take him out of the traditional Government employee world. Since then, Raj’s career spans all sides of tech teams from software engineering, marketing, product ownership, to creative & user experience.
The relationship between ONE Street and Raj began when ONE became a client of District Interactive, a marketing and technology firm he founded and served as Managing Partner. While at District Interactive, Raj scaled the company to include a roster of 61 sought after digital professionals in an almost 100% contractor based model serving up to 75 monthly clients of all sizes & industries, managing $2.5M/year in ad spend across channels and generating over $350M in tracked client sales.
Raj quickly realized ONE Street was not a normal client, as he recognized an amazing team with forward-thinking leadership & an industry that was ripe for transformation. Thus, in February 2021, Raj joined full-time as Director of Digital Strategy. In June 2023, he was promoted to Chief Digital Officer, which places him in the #2 position in the company. This move showcases ONE Street’s commitment to the mission of making Real Estate accessible and empowering for both agents and consumers alike through innovative tech, data and digital media that not only enhances real relationships but creates a better overall real estate experience.
