The Walmart-owned company’s recruitment from campuses this year will likely be 30% higher than last year. It will hire both tech and non-tech talent.
“Our campus hires form a very important part of our talent pool. Similar to previous years, this year, we are engaging with IITs and reputed business schools across the country, to onboard fresh talent,” said Krishna Raghavan, chief people officer at Flipkart.
The company is using on-campus placements, case-study competitions (GRiD and WiRED) and post-internship offers to hire campus talent. Flipkart is likely to hire 80 graduates from the IITs, where final placements are going on.
“Our aim at present is to hire 300 full-time employees from campuses, who will be joining us in 2021. These new hires will comprise 180 engineers,” said Raghavan.
The e-commerce company is hiring software development engineers, data scientists, business analysts, product managers and product designers.
“The pay packages for all these roles continue to be very competitive and in line with industry standards,” he said.
Flipkart has honoured all its internship and full-time campus offers this year.
“We remain committed to providing the best opportunities,” Raghavan said.
Flipkart is also recruiting women engineers through its campus engagement and hiring programme called ‘Girls Wanna Code.’
“This year, the ‘Girls Wanna Code’ programme has seen participation from women-only engineering colleges across the country,” he said.
