Tide to hire more than 600 tech professionals by 2026
UK financial platform Tide on Thursday announced plans to hire more than 600 tech professionals in India by the end of 2026.
The campaign, which accounts for nearly 60 percent of the company’s total hires, stems from Tide’s expansion strategy to strengthen its local presence in India, its largest international market, the company said in a statement.
Earlier this year, Tide announced plans to create more than 1,000 jobs in India over the next five years.
Over the next 18-24 months, the Hyderabad fintech Technology Center / Global Development Center (GDC) will embark over 300 engineers in various roles, with a particular focus on backend engineers in Java and Python, as well as experts in data science and beat.
Bearing in mind the current shortage of tech talent around the world, Tide is creating new hiring flows through a “hiring internship” program to attract and develop top quality talent.
Focused on training new graduates from premium institutes, such as IITs and NITs, Tide will leverage the program to recruit entry-level applicants and then gradually increase the number as the model matures.
“We have seen a tremendous response from the Indian market within a short period of starting operations in the country.”
“The additional technological capabilities will help us develop our product for India as we extend our roots deeper in the country and invest in the technology leaders of tomorrow,” said Gurjodhpal Singh, CEO of Tide India.
Tide already has more than 350 highly skilled employees in India, most of them based in its technology center in Hyderabad, which was established in early 2020.
