FinTech Tide to create 350 job opportunities across India in 2021
By Leandra Monteiro
London-based Tide, a digital business financial platform, is looking at increasing its India headcount by 350 skilled professionals in 2021. This will take their Indian employees to over 400 by end of 2021.
Over 180 of these will be for areas such as engineering and product development. 100 will be working in additional positions as such support and servicing, for Tide’s global development center in Hyderabad. They will be tasked with supporting the firms’ global expansion plans and constant innovation to deliver higher value to SMEs. In addition to this, another 50 will be employed in areas such as marketing and support which will be based in Tide’s corporate office in Gurugram as it seeks to replicate its success in the UK, in India.
Commenting on the latest announcement, Oliver Prill, Chief Executive Officer, Tide said, “Though Tide is at the very beginning of its journey here, we are very excited about our launch into the Indian market. India boasts one of the largest number of SMEs globally and has a very robust and fast growing fintech ecosystem. As we look to scale globally, we have a growing need for top-level talent, which is fortunately readily available in India. The new team members we will welcome to Tide will benefit from the strong Tide culture where we support one another, give people the opportunity to share their ideas, and be an integral part of building a brilliant service.”
Gurjodhpal Singh, Chief Executive Officer, Tide India added “Tide’s mission to save small business owners time (and money) is much more relevant today for Indian SMEs than before. As a fast-growing business, Tide never stands still, as we are always striving to offer a better service to our members and to deliver new and exciting products. We are known to be the employer of choice providing an open, collaborative and fulfilling work culture and experience where people go out of their way to be supportive and work as one global team. I look forward to building a great team here in India.”
