Digital payments major PayPal is planning to hire 1,000 engineers this year for its India development centers across Bengaluru, Chennai, and Hyderabad.
PayPal will hire 1,000 engineers for the development centers in these three cities over the course of the year across software, product development, data science, risk analytics and business analytics streams at entry, mid-level, and senior roles.
PayPal’s India Technology Centers employ over 4,500 people across the three centers. PayPal India has also announced its plans for campus hires from top engineering colleges across India.
The company highlighted that the pandemic has accelerated the shift towards digital payments and highlighted the benefits of adopting a digital first approach.
PayPal’s products and services have become even more relevant now and hence, the need to focus on technology innovation across AI/ML, Data Science, Risk and Security, Customer Experience and other key areas, it said.
“Our India Technology Centers are the largest for PayPal outside of the US and play a pivotal role in enabling us to constantly innovate and remain ahead of the curve,” Guru Bhat, VP Omni Channel & Customer Success, GM at PayPal India, said.
Last month, Paypal said it will stop offering domestic payment services within India from April 1, and instead focus on enabling more international sales for Indian businesses.
