The software-as-a-service (SaaS) firm Zoho Corp., based in Chennai, is seeking to grow its staff both inside and outside of the country. In order to grow its staff by at least 2,000 employees, it is on the lookout for engineers, web developers, writers, support engineers, product marketers, and designers.
With ambitions to start upskilling programmes like the Zoho Schools of Learning as part of its aim to extend operations and expand to other countries, it has already started hiring locally in India. With a global workforce of 10,000, Zoho already has a sizable presence in the US and India and is quickly growing in Cape Town, Jeddah, and Egypt.
According to Prashant Ganti, head of products, tax, account and payroll at Zoho, the majority of the talent in India’s cities originates from small towns and rural areas, so it’s time to tap into this enormous talent pool and make investments in their upskilling. Even as Zoho works to enhance its audio and video capabilities, the company will keep making technology investments and also has money set aside to support the growth of India’s deep-tech ecosystem.
In addition to Zoho Inventory, Zoho CRM, and Zoho Site, the company now provides HR solutions through Zoho People and financial management solutions through Zoho Books.
