COVID-19 has been a turning point for the FinTech Sector.

With business demands and behaviours changing rapidly during this time, we are hiring for critical roles based on how productive a role can be to the company and the industry at this point. New team members come with a particular brand of enthusiasm and energy, and as a fast evolving organization, there is a constant desire for relentless enthusiasm and quality skill-set to supplement these new roles and functions.”
She added, “With a new digital world in order, we are seeing an emergence of skills revolutionising the fintech space, and this rapid technological disruption means that new skills will emerge as fast as others become old-fashion.”
In the last twelve months, Razorpay has more than doubled its headcount from 330 to 770.

With a healthy growth rate of 35% month-on-month, Razorpay has been witnessing an increased demand for digital payments especially from tier-2 and 3 cities, particularly in the last six months. And with businesses starting to adopt newer digital ways of banking, Razorpay’s neobanking arm, RazorpayX is helping businesses manage their cash flows and get better insights about their financial growth.
