Pune based Persistent System hires 1,600 people for US Expansion

After signing deals worth $300 million in December quarter, Persistent Systems hires 1600 people, including 600 freshers, to meet the new demand.

Pune-based Persistent Systems is accelerating its digital transformation journey by expanding its presence in the US, Canada, and Mexico to serve clients better. 

The IT firm Persistent System has hired 1600 new positions – including 600 freshers as of the December quarter End by the company to meet the previous deals’ demand.

 After the pandemic experience, companies are hiring people to work from home and thus are flexible on the number of staff to keep. While in this pandemic time, companies are also trying to recruit workers in the same timezone as clients to keep them close to each other and bring more efficiency.

 Persistent systems planned this expansion after signing new deals worth $300 million in the December quarter of the ongoing fiscal. The new agreement mainly is in the domain of product engineering and cloud verticals. Sandeep Kalra, CEO of Persistent Systems, said that they had hired 1600 people, including 600 freshers.

“We may set up a bigger delivery centre in the US, which is our main market, and scale it up as we grow,” Kalra said recently.

With IT and software services industries still preferring their employees to work remotely, it’s tough for recruiters and HR professionals to find the people with the right skills. The rise of Big-data, AI, and cloud technology also added more pressure to find the right talent. 

The hiring could further boom as the company focuses on growing its banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) vertical and healthcare and technology verticals, alongside areas of expertise like cloud, which will further help the company grow faster in upcoming quarters.
