Paytm Mall, the e-commerce venture backed by China's Alibaba Group, is on a hiring spree and after employing over 200 people across various functions is planning to hire another 300 in the coming months.
Paytm Mall has big plans for its online to offline (O2O) consumer business and looking to scale up its operations to support its growth going forward. The company has witnessed a 200 percent growth for its O2O business in the last six months.
"We are observing strong traction for O2O with the business. To support this growth, we have re-aligned some of our teams and have added 200 more people for the business,” Paytm Mall’s senior vice president Srinivas Mothey told PTI.
"We further plan to add an additional workforce of 300 people across business, technology, and product in the next few months. With O2O, Paytm Mall is ensuring availability of a wide range of products and offers across online and offline stores,” Mothey added.
Patym Mall, owned by Paytm E-Commerce, is currently the third biggest player in India's rapidly-growing online retail space. The company also has a revenue-sharing partnership with Future Retail, which owns hypermarket stores like Big Bazaar and fashion shops.
The mall platform expects to hit $2 billion in gross merchandise sales this year.
