NPCI to hire and train over 250 engineering graduates
National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), an umbrella organisation for operating retail payments and settlement systems in India, has announced a PAN India hiring campaign that aims to recruit over 250 world-class graduate engineering trainees (GETs) from across the country.
As part of the recruitment drive, NPCI will also be offering ‘Learn DeepTech while you Earn’ programme for the GETs to pursue post graduate (PG) certification in artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) or blockchain from a reputed institution. GETs will get the opportunity to pursue one year PG programs in addition to the salary package being offered to them.
Through this placement drive, NPCI aims to attract quality talent. The newly joined GETs will be placed at NPCI’s world-class office facilities in key metro cities across India. Fresh graduates will get to work on live projects where they get to work on top-notch products like UPI, RuPay, and FASTag that touch the lives of millions every day.
“GETs will become part of an exceptional peer group consisting of India’s best tech minds and will get to work with a strong technology team of over 550 domain specialists. They will be the key drivers of innovation who can help NPCI realise the vision of ‘Digital payments for all’,” NPCI said in a statement.
“Through this initiative, we at NPCI wish to create high impact career opportunities for young innovators to contribute towards developing breakthrough technology in the payments space. We will continue to work with India’s tech-savvy brains and develop revolutionary offerings to create a delightful and seamless payment experience for millions of Indians,” said Nishith Chaturvedi, chief human resource & admin, NPCI.
“To serve more customers, we are expanding our teams and are looking for bright engineering minds so we can collectively take India’s digital payment ecosystem to the next level. We believe that fostering and upskilling young talent is a stepping stone towards creating a ‘truly digital’ payments ecosystem in India,” added Vishal Anand Kanvaty, chief market innovation, NPCI.
Applications for GETs are open and will close on April 28. Engineering graduates from the 2021 and 2022 batches can apply through the careers page on the NPCI website.
