PhonePe plans to more than double its employee base to 5,400 by December 2022

PhonePe, a digital payments platform, announced on Tuesday that it wants to more than double its total workforce strength across the country to 5,400 by the end of December 2022, up from the current 2,600.

"There are approximately 2,800 open job positions that the company plans to fill in the next 12 months across Bengaluru, Pune, Mumbai, Delhi, and the rest of the country," Phonepe said, adding that hiring will take place at all levels and functions for engineering, product, analytics, business development, and sales teams.

The company also claims to have reduced attrition rates since it offers a salary package that is higher than the market standard and provides all employees with the opportunity to build wealth through ESOPs (Employee Stock Ownership Plans).

"We are constructing a long-term sustainable organization based on technology, with the goal of unlocking value for all." We are happy that PhonePe has emerged as the employer of choice for talented, ambitious people who want to make a big difference. "The company provides opportunities for employees to learn and grow by working on some of the most complicated problems in the industry," said Manmeet Sandhu, HR head at Phonepe.
