Bengaluru, Feb 12 (IANS) Fintech unicorn Razorpay on Friday announced to hire 650 employees across technology, product and business teams in the next 10 months, to meet the growing payment and banking needs of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and freelancers.
Of the 650 new positions for both freshers and lateral hires, 350 will be towards expanding the engineering and product teams, and the rest will form the customer experience, sales and marketing forces, the company said in a statement.
The company which currently has 1,300 employees hired over 550 people last year and witnessed a three times business growth in the pandemic-hit year.
