Earlier this year in June, the financial services company also announced its hiring plans of 1,000 people in India. “So out of 1,000, 200 have already been hired and overall, we have a team size of over 350 today in India,” Gurjodhpal Singh, chief executive officer (CEO) at Tide (India) told Business Insider in an interaction.
Other than tech professionals, the company will also be hiring people across business profiles for their Gurugram office, which is the business hub of the company. He further said, “Along with techies, we are also actively hiring for business teams and business roles. So that is another aspect of the 1,000 employees that we are looking to hire.”
When asked about how the company will fund the new hiring plans, he said, “We have raised a decent Series-C earlier this year. So, both these put together put us in a position where now we can invest into further growth and that is what we are intending to do. Our growth journey will also be focused on growing in terms of revenue and market share. All that will go into investing into a larger team and building a more robust product.”

In an interview with Business Insider, Singh, also mentioned the aggressive growth plans in India in the next five years but did not reveal much details. He said, “ We have aggressive growth plans for the next 5-years. Considering that India has 10% of global SMEs, our aspiration is to impact 25% of the global SME base through Tide.”
Singh mentioned his plans about launching new products in the Indian market and setting up of new offices in different states of the country. “ In parallel we will also be expanding our product foothold across the country, apart from Delhi and Hyderabad with our banking partner (RBL Bank). We're a very open and agile organization and would be open about moving into some more cities as well in India if need be. But for now, this is the plan,” said Singh.
