Unnati, the fintech-driven agriculture ecosystem, plans to add 300 employees to its existing team of 199, in a year’s time. The platform will hire at least 50 members in the technology division at various levels, and also onboard senior members in the finance, business & sales, and agronomy verticals in the months to come. Unnati will use LinkedIn, The Hirist, Naukri.com and other similar platforms along with referrals for the hiring.
Having managed to survive the pandemic and achieve an exceptional growth rate through innovation in the last six months, the platform has posted 10-times revenue growth. In fact, it has managed to establish a wide-ranging network of over 15,000 uStores in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Bihar and Haryana. It is now targeting to achieve 1,00,000 uStores across India, for which it is hiring more people.
With its accelerated expansion, Unnati hopes to gain a strong foothold in the agritech sector. In FY22, it will inaugurate uStores in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Odisha, Rajasthan and Punjab.
