It was a sales job, even though he had only a year's experience in sales, and that too in India.
But Chairman Schmidt had told him Google looks for people who have well-rounded skills rather than a specific one, because business will change multiple times.
True to Schmidt's words, Google has changed its business model several times, introducing new features and products, and Arora was an integral part of the change.
Other than taking Google's emerging markets revenue from $1 billion to $8 billion, Arora has increased the headcount of the company.
Arora, it seems, doesn't think much of the competition - whether it is Microsoft's latest Windows 8 operating system or the increasing preference of social networking platform, Facebook.
He feels it's a bit harsh when the media starts comparing the Android and Windows 8 platforms and concludes that Windows 8 might provide a better opportunity for monetisation to developers (especially Indian ones).
"Windows 8 will first have to show me users, then talk about monetisation. They do not have an app philosophy," he says.
As for Facebook, his take is not to overtly focus on competition. "If you look at the history of industry, your revenues are driven by your own users. If you are obsessed about someone else, a third party will come along and take away the market and disrupt the market."
