Synechron, digital transformation consulting firm for the financial services industry, announced growth plans to further augment its capabilities. The company plans to add up to 2,000 professionals as lateral joiners in FY 2021. This hiring plan is being strategized to fulfil the company’s growth and progression plans for its India operations in Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Chennai. Additionally, Synechron will look at fulfilling open positions across the US, Europe, Middle East, and APAC regions.
Synechron recently made two back-to-back acquisitions namely Citihub Digital, a London and New York based technology consulting firm for the financial services industry, and Attra, an Australia-based technology services and solutions provider, headquartered in Melbourne, and focused on the banking, finance, and payments industries.
In laying out this growth strategy, Faisal Husain, co-founder and CEO of Synechron said: “Through our two acquisitions, we have strengthened our capabilities. Citihub Digital helped to strengthen our application modernization, 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. We are looking forward to continuing phenomenal growth across all of our geographies, including our US, Europe, Middle East, and APAC regions.”
Commenting on the company’s continuing employee care, Faisal added, “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.” He added, “We have also been able to extend a sleeve of benefits to our employees during these challenging times. Our employees have been key to our remarkable and continued growth, and it is only right that we fully recognize and applaud their efforts.”
Further, with the number of global operating locations having increased to 22 in 2021 from 18 in 2020, Synechron is seeking talented professionals to hire across all levels. In speaking about the hiring strategy, Hareesha Pattaje, managing director and delivery head India, Synechron said: “We are witnessing huge growth in India this year specifically in Digital Transformation initiatives across various BFSI clients. Although our focus is to hire people with strong domain knowledge, we will still be looking at dedicated professionals in the range of 4 to 10 years of relevant experience. The key skills we are currently targeting include: Java Full stack, Angular/React, Cloud & DevOps, Data Engineers, UI/UX Specialists, Automation Engineers, Agile Coaches and Business Analysts. We are also leveraging our internal talent, who are frequently cross-skilling and upskilling themselves, to be placed in appropriate roles.”
