The company, which has a current employee strength of 488, is looking to hire another 370 people in the coming months, Prashant Pitti, co-founder of EaseMyTrip, told Business Insider.
Pitti said, “As there is a huge requirement to grow organically and inorganically, that is why we are looking forward to doubling our headcount by next year or so.”

In a conversation with Business Insider, Pitti also expressed his interest in hiring interns as well across product and analyst segments. He said, “We are more than happy to hire interns on the product side, analyst side. If we can connect to some universities, we’re happy to take interns.”
When asked about how many internships the travel company is planning to roll out, Pitti said, “ There is no specific number in our mind, but we’re really looking forward to welcoming interns or freshers in our team.”
Talking about the growth plans of the company, Pitti also mentioned that EaseMyTrip will be acquiring a few more companies in the near future, but didn’t reveal the name of the companies. “There are many more acquisitions which are in the pipeline.. But we can’t reveal the names and other details,” Pitti told Business Insider.
EaseMyTrip, in 2021, had acquired three companies — YoloBus, a premium intercity mobility platform, Spree Hospitality, a hospitality management company and Traviat, a business to business travel platform — for an undisclosed amount.
“ We also plan on leveraging our vast agent network and utilising it for the holiday bookings which shall complement the company’s hotel and holiday businesses. We also aim to rapidly grow across our international markets where we have recently expanded our international presence to six countries where we added the Philippines, Thailand, and the USA as well,” he added.
The publicly-listed travel company even doubled its net profit to ₹61.4 crore in the financial year 2021, when the entire travel segment was brought down to its knees due to COVID-19 and sits on a market cap of ₹5,600 crore, as of January 27. It had crossed ₹7,500 crore ($1 billion) market cap milestone in September last year.
