Hexaware to recruit up to 8,000 new people in lavish hiring spree

New test managers, DevOps engineers and full-stack developers are high up on Hexaware’s new worker wishlist.

By Greg Noone

Hexaware has announced it will hire up to 8,000 people globally this year. The India-based tech firm said that it intends to prioritise the recruitment of full-stack developers, service desk professionals and test managers, among other experts, throughout its offices in Europe, North America and South Asia. Hexaware’s executive vice president and global head of its talent supply chain, Rajesh Balasubramanian, said the hiring spree was as much a sign of Hexaware’s willingness 

“We’re not only achieving strong results, but we’re also strategically developing for the future,” said Balasubramanian. “To fuel this expansion, we’re actively seeking talented individuals across the globe to join our team.”

Diverse hiring requirements across geographies

Hexaware’s hiring wishlist will differ across its operating regions, said the firm. In the UK, for example, the firm is prioritising the recruitment of test managers (both for manual and automation tasks), Azure DevOps service desk professionals and full-stack developers fluent in both .NET and Java. In its North American offices, meanwhile, Hexaware is intent on hiring new ESM Architects, Java Full Stack Engineers and test analysts, among other job titles. 

Hexaware will also recruit aggressively in its home market of India, the company confirmed in a statement, planning to “double down on hiring in Hyderabad, Noida, Coimbatore, Dehradun and Bengaluru.” 

New Hexaware IPO in the offing

The announcement follows reports that Hexaware is considering an IPO, after delisting itself from stock exchanges in November 2020. According to Bloomberg, which broke the story, its re-introduction to global bourses is being masterminded by the Carlyle Group, which owns a 62% stake in the Indian IT firm. If successful, analysts have speculated that Hexaware could be valued at up to $4bn. 

Recent months have also seen Hexaware integrate a new acquisition. Softcrylic, a data consulting firm based in the US city of Minneapolis, was bought by the firm in May. Commenting on the acquisition, Hexaware’s global head of data and AI Girish Pai said that the deal played neatly into the firm’s ambition to become the “dominant preferred partner for our clients’ needs around customer and marketing analytics.” 

Softcrylic’s chief executive, John Flavin, was just as effusive. “Joining forces with Hexaware presents an exciting opportunity to expand our reach and accelerate our growth,” said Flavin. “We are confident that our combined expertise will create a powerhouse in the data consulting space.”
