Deepinder Goyal, CEO of Zomato, announced on Monday that the firm was looking to employ 800 individuals for positions such as growth managers, software development engineers, and even chiefs of staff to the CEOs of Zomato, Hyperpure, and Blinkit.
“We have roughly 800 vacancies vacant across these five roles at Zomato,” Goyal said on LinkedIn. “If you happen to know someone extremely good for any of these jobs, please tag them on this post,” he added.
Goyal’s LinkedIn profile also includes job postings for ‘generalist’ and ‘product owner’ positions. “As a generalist, you will work directly with the senior team of Zomato,” he wrote for the position. “You will have the ability to create and execute the fundamental strategy of our food delivery business, as well as eventually own a function,” he said.
Similarly, for the product owner role – Zomato’s version on the product manager post – the advertising contained a job description that read: “Translating client insights into amazingly simple and elegant systems and products”.
“As chief of staff to one of our CEOs (Zomato, Blinkit, Hyperpure), you will be nothing less than a force multiplier and a mini-CEO for the organisation,” according to the Zomato advertisement.
Based on regular performance evaluations, the food-tech platform let off 3 per cent of its 3,800-person workforce in November 2022.
In recent months, Zomato has lost many key executives, including cofounder Mohit Gupta, chief technology officer Gunjan Patidar, director of new projects Rahul Ganjoo, and head of intercity meal delivery service Siddharth Jhawar.
Zomato reported a net loss of Rs 251 crore for the September quarter, down from Rs 430 crore the previous year. Employee benefit spending declined to Rs 381.3 crore over the three-month period, down from Rs 421.4 crore in the same time previous year.
