As a leading digital ecosystem, we believe that recruiting top talent is crucial for our organization. So, attracting the right talent is our top priority and the recruitment is done as per the goals, business priority, and vision, and it proceeded through internal as well as external hiring.   

Our structured hiring process helps us bring onboard the right talent for the right role, who are aligned with our mission of driving financial inclusion in India. We are building a strong team at Paytm to further drive innovation and business growth. Along with experienced hands, we continue to onboard young talents that are willing to push the boundaries and join us on our mission of bringing half a billion Indians into the mainstream economy.

Stronger Leadership to Achieve Bigger Goals 

We welcomed several Senior Vice Presidents last year. The recruitment was majorly for the roles in product, growth, operations, analytics, business, and program management, across teams such as payments, lending, insurance, wealth management, and compliance. In Paytm, leadership is crucial to the management of manpower as it directs the resources for improved efficiency and helps in the achievement of goals. The leadership decisions flow from the top down and provide clarity of purpose, motivate, and guide the employees to realize their mission.

Our focus was also on bringing on board young talent from across the top colleges in the country. We hired 715 engineers from over 80 campuses including IITs, NITs, and IIITs, and over 100 Commerce hiring from top 15 colleges such as Shri Ram College of Commerce, Hansraj College, Hindu College, among many others.

We also hired 265 graduates from over 26 colleges including IIM A, B, C, L, XLRI, ISB, etc. We also emerged as the top fintech recruiter in IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Kozhikode, IIM Lucknow, and many others last year. We have been at the forefront of hiring young talents from IIMs and other top business schools, who will play an essential role in launching innovative financial services and technology to fuel the company’s growth journey.

Committed to Diversity & Inclusion

We encourage women in leadership roles and are committed to diversity and inclusion in our hiring process. We are an equal opportunities employer at the managerial level, we hired over 693 women in leadership roles as of December 2022. 

Paytm believes diversity in the workplace is essential to create a thriving business. Workplace diversity encourages creativity and innovation because every team member, from leadership to frontline employees and mobile workers, brings their own unique backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to the table.

These several new additions to the team show that we remain committed to driving inclusion in digital payments and financial services.

We are strengthening our teams across businesses with talents, who will contribute to our growth journey and drive greater scale. Our innovative and entrepreneurial work environment encourages people to grow individually as well, making Paytm a great place to work!
