Skit to hire 1000 employees in the upcoming year

The voice AI company is planning to scale up operations by at least ten times in FY22


Skit, the voice AI company, has revealed its plans to hire 1000 employees in the coming year. The hiring is its highest so far, across diverse roles and dynamic skill-sets for strategic business and technical expansion. The new roles are expected to help the Company meet the growing demand from global enterprise customers for executing projects and solving contact centre queries for a wider demographic.

The existing strength of the Company’s workforce is over 200. The Company plans to make key senior appointments across product, engineering, revenue, marketing, board appointments, human resources and growth teams. Additionally, Skit plans to onboard CXO roles for product, marketing and delivery, to further solidify its leadership rung.

Skit aims to hire aggressively across three primary markets including, the US, Southeast Asia and India. Having recently raised a Series B round of US$ 23 million, Skit has resolved to further entrench its voice solutions in current as well as more mature and receptive markets such as the US.

On the development, Sourabh Gupta, co-founder and CEO of Skit, informed, “With the aim to scale the company by 10x in the coming year, our priority is to first augment our sales, delivery and tech teams who will be at the forefront of Skit’s explosive growth trajectory. We are currently investing in skilled and talented individuals who will drive this success and innovate to build an ecosystem of natural man and machine conversations, creating a world where voice interfaces are the primary ones.”

In the US and Southeast Asian markets, the Company will focus on bolstering sales and marketing roles, along with filling niche requirements for high-quality data annotation. However, the majority of the hiring will happen in India, including both technical and business aspects, for lateral and fresh candidates, in product, marketing, sales, machine learning, engineering, delivery, data annotation, HR/recruitment and CXO roles.
