In a statement, Instamojo said the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the trend of remote hiring.
"A year since the pandemic, India Inc has now become accustomed to the new normal which also introduced the trend of remote hiring. With no barriers of location, Instamojo had access to a wider pool of talent to choose from, especially for technical roles. With an employee strength of 140 people across the country, the recent hiring cycle saw new hires from Tier II and III towns such as Krishnagiri, Kolar, Dehradun and Sitapur," the company said in the statement.
Akash Gehani, co-founder and COO, Instamojo said the company aims to end the quarter with around 160 employees.
"Flexibility at work is an essential feature today, while employees look for options to maintain a work-life balance. At Instamojo, along with the introduction of the permanent work-from-home feature, we plan to continue following our work from anywhere policy, with our office space open and accessible to all employees." Gehani added.
