Flipkart to hire 20-30% more staff this year

March : Ecommerce major Flipkart is looking to hire 20-30% more people in 2017 compared with last year, even as rival Snapdeal hands out pink slips to its employees.

The Bengaluru-based firm, which is locked in an intense battle with US-based Amazon for leadership in the Indian market, will hire most laterals this year.

“Our 2017 hiring plans are calibrated to the growth momentum we are seeing and we expect it to be somewhere around 20-30% higher than last year, spread out as per requirements across verticals,” Flipkart COO Nitin Seth said, adding that a majority of this will likely come in through the lateral route.

Seth, however, declined to comment on the hiring number this year or in the previous year.
