The company is looking to expand its teams in Australia, as well as set up an entity in Singapore and expand its presence in the southeast Asia market. It is also looking at hiring leaders who can drive this growth and expansion.
“We have been looking at people who have worked in the digital adoption platform (DAP) space or who have been very successful in the area of southeast Asia sales. We have also looked at strengthening our partnership and alliance channels because that is another area which can see double-digit growth,” said Romita Mukherjee, associate vice-president of HR.
The company has also hired around 300-odd employees over the past year.
It is looking at recruiting for its go-to-market teams for international expansion, primarily for sales, account management, and customer success profiles.
“Hiring is a little tricky in the regions we’re looking to expand to, because local awareness of DAP is also equally important. So we’re trying to create more awareness about DAP as a product, as well as partnering with local agencies in the region,” said Mukherjee.
