About

If you could live your life as if it involved choosing one free elective after another, what would you really do?


That was the spirit behind our CEO, Anil Kumar's founding FreeElective out of his downtown Chicago studio in 2009, in the home stretch of his MBA program at the Chicago Booth School of Business.

Our flagship platform, Jodi365 helps educated, quality singles to find a suitable match—whether they are ready for marriage in the near term or want to get to know someone as friends first.

We are also introducing Peepul365, an online event-planning marketplace where people discover beautiful venues, browse stunning ideas, and find curated vendors to plan and celebrate weddings, receptions, parties & other special events.

Careers

FreeElective is a privately-held company that has a corporate presence in the US and India. Our mission is lofty—to help people find a compatible match, to help them celebrate and nurture their relationships through all seasons of life, and thereby to make meaningful contributions to society.

We are also growing briskly and are constantly on the lookout for terrific talent. Read on to learn more about our work culture and current openings.
