Fintech platform BharatPe is looking to hire over 75 engineers and project managers this year to expand its technology team and will set up a tech-hub in Delhi for the expanded team.
In a statement, the fintech player said, "BharatPe is coming up with a state-of-the-art tech-hub in Delhi to house its expanded product and technology team. The company plans to hire over 75 engineers and project managers this year and thereby expand its tech team.”
The tech-hub will serve as the core for BharatPe's product development and new innovations, with the company spending more than $500K to do up the space. In addition, the company will send its tech-hub employees on month-long secondments to the US, China and Europe to learn from leading fintech platforms.
Founded by Ashneer Grover and Shashvat Nakrani in 2018, BharatPe offers merchants a single interface for all UPI apps like Paytm, PhonePe, Google Pay, BHIM, Mobikwik, Freecharge and others. The startup is backed by investors such as Insight Partners, Sequoia and Beenext.
The platform currently claims to serve over 30 lakh merchants across Bengaluru, Delhi, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Jaipur, Ahmedabad and others. With a $20 Mn expanded ESOP pool, it will hope to attract more technology professionals in Delhi-NCR as it embarks on its expansion spree. Towards this, the company is investing heavily in senior talent and tech talent. In this direction, last September, BharatPe had roped in executives from PayTM, Reckitt & ICICI for key roles.
