After a spate of job-focused solid sales, marketing, and operations to try to protect their money in 2020, startups are now looking to introduce new products, increase tech skills and increase leadership as they grow. Armed with new funds and on the path to solid growth, startups are looking for technology and leadership roles, especially in edtech, e-commerce, software-as-a-service (SaaS), and fintech, a significant amount of value.
Edtech startup Byju’s plans to hire 6,000-8,000 people over the next 12 months, including top executives, to lead its programs. “As we expand our horizons, we plan to increase our employment in the technical and non-technical fields. The hiring of technology will take first place this year at Byju. The team consistently introduces new products and looks for technicians and technicians in artificial intelligence, machine learning, scientific data, and analytics, “said Pravin Prakash, human resources officer, Byju’s.
The social media platform Meesho, after a $ 300 million funding cycle led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2, plans to spend part of the money on building the team. “As we are currently working to double the technical and production management team, we can see excellent growth in the coming years,” said Vidit Aatrey, founder and CEO, Meesho, who currently employs about 700 people.
Certainly, full-time employment in startups will make little sense in 2021, compared to last year, when firms set out to hire more strategies as they move on to the next growth phase. Online education company Vedantu plans to hire 2,500 employees in manufacturing, technology, academics, and business over the next three months after hiring about 5,000 people in all jobs as demand for online learning has increased, said CEO and co-founder Vamsi Krishna.
Toppr Startup, which is edutech, plans to double its team, adding about 3,000-4,000 employees in all departments focusing on product, technology (engineering), and content, a spokesman for the organization said.
