Lenskart announced that it will hire more than 2,000 employees across India by 2022, as part of its plan to increase its consumer base over the next few years.
The company is looking to add 1,500 more retail employees to manage their rapidly increasing stores and more than 100 engineers to the technology team across Bengaluru, Delhi-NCR and Hyderabad.
"We have continued to grow exponentially, in international markets as well as in India, and we are building a strong presence in regional markets as well through our stores and e-commerce," said Peyush Bansal, Founder, and CEO of Lenskart.
Bansal also added that the hiring is a key aspect in Lenskart’s growth journey and the company is looking at actively hiring skilled talent across verticals for regions like Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Delhi, among others.
In addition, the company will also expand its international teams in Singapore, Middle East, and the US by adding 300 more employees.
The particular focus of hiring will be in domains like the supply chain & manufacturing operations, corporate functions across finance, consumer insights, HR, and merchandising.
The company serves more than seven million customers all over the world and employs over 200 engineers, data scientists, product designers assembled from diverse backgrounds. It will be interesting to see how this latest hiring move in a post-pandemic business market will serve them as many organisations are facing challenges when it comes to finding cross-functional talents.
