Synechron, the digital transformation consulting firm, is all set to expand its India team by about 2,000 professionals. The objective is to give a push to its operations in India, across Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Chennai. It is mainly looking for talent in the areas of Java full stack, automation engineering, Cloud and DevOps, data engineering, UI/UX, as well as business analytics among others.
With a surge in demand for digital transformation, especially in the BFSI space in India, the Company is gearing up for massive growth in the country. While it will focus on hiring experts, it is open to taking on professionals with four to ten years of experience in their respective domains, according to Hareesha Pattaje, managing director and delivery head India, Synechron.
In the meantime, the Company has been considering its upskilled and cross-skilled internal talent too.
The New York-based IT firm will also look for talent to fill vacancies across the US, Europe, the Middle East and the APAC.
Faisal Husain, co-founder and CEO, Synechron, says, “Synechron has always been proactive with solutions to cater to our global clients, who are looking strongly at digital transformation to enable their end customers to transact more effectively and intelligently.”
He believes that the two acquisitions made by the Company recently “have strengthened our capabilities. Citihub Digital helped to strengthen our application modernisation, cloud enablement and cybersecurity agenda, while Attra’s comprehensive cards and payments services complemented the digital, consulting, and technology services that Synechron currently provides for its clients.”
Faisal insists that the “well-being of our employees and their families has always been our utmost priority. Synechron was one of the major industry participants who announced full appraisals for all of its employees globally, despite the pandemic.”
Synechron expanded its presence to 22 locations in 2021, from 18 last year. Its present workforce strength is more than 10,000 and it posts a yearly revenue of more than $650 million.
The experts at Synechron are well equipped to handle various emerging technologies, including machine learning (ML), robotic process automation, NLP/NLG, chatbots, blockchain, cloud engineering, data science and artificial intelligence (AI).
Not long ago, it acquired Citihub Digital, a technology-consulting firm for the financial services industry, and then acquired Attra, an Australia-based technology services and solutions provider focused on the banking, finance and payments industries.
