Digital investment platform, Syfe has appointed Saurabh Seth as its head of talent acquisition in India. His appointment is part of Syfe’s plans to grow its team in the country.

In 2021, the Company had tripled its strength and plans to continue growing its team in 2022 too.

Currently focussed on building its wealth management and online brokerage offerings used by customers across Asia, the Singapore-headquartered Syfe already has an 80-member team working out of its tech hub in India.

Backed by more than 15 years of experience in technical recruiting, Seth moves from Cabernet Consulting, where he was associate vice president. Seth has also worked with Uber, Amazon, Walmart Labs, Flipkart, Ola, Myntra, Swiggy and Yahoo, among others in his career.

In his new role, he will help Syfe further grow its tech team and its capabilities to support the business as it expands into new markets.

He will also focus on strengthening Syfe’s employer brand externally, enhancing the Company’s HR policies to attract the best candidates and improve the candidate experience during the hiring process.

Seth is eager to be part of “Syfe’s truly diverse team of over 170 employees from 17 different nationalities working across our offices in India, Singapore and Hong Kong”. He is looking forward to “expanding our tech team at a faster pace to strengthen our capability as a key centre of excellence in building cutting-edge products.”

Snehal Samant, VP, product, Syfe, is confident that Seth’s “rich experience in technical recruiting will help in building a strong talent pipeline, as we gear up to expand our footprint in more geographies”.

Syfe boasts of being amongst the few companies in India that offer employees an unlimited leave policy along with other amenities, including flexible working hours, annual learning allowance, regular skill-based training and an annual recreational allowance, as part of its endeavour to ensure holistic wellness of the employees.

The Company has raised about $52 million till date, including $30 million in its latest Series B funding round led by Peter Thiel-backed Valar Ventures.
