Jain was earlier with Bharti Airtel as senior vice-president and head, sales and marketing, Airtel DTH, where he looked after the entire sales and marketing function for Airtel Digital TV.

Having an experience of more than two decades in sales and marketing, Jain started his career with PepsiCo, and spent 13 years with the company. After that, he shifted to World Space as chief marketing officer, followed by his most recent role in Bharti Airtel.
