“It has been a fulfilling experience to virtually onboard fresh talent, amidst such challenging times. This year, the hiring as well as the company orientation of over 300+ new hires were completed digitally and across diverse verticals. We plan to further double our workforce by the end of 2022, filling up critical positions to prepare for the next wave of transformation and growth in the organisation," said Sapna Sukumar, vice-president of HR, Cashfree Payments.

Cashfree Payments works closely with all leading banks to build the core payment gateways and banking infrastructure that powers the company’s products and is also integrated with major platforms such as Shopify, Wix, Paypal, Amazon Pay, Paytm and Google Pay.
