Delhi-based Physics Wallah, which turned unicorn last year, plans to hire 2,500 employees across verticals within the first quarter of 2023.
The announcement comes amid several technology companies and Indian startups laying off their employees to reduce operating costs and achieve profitability. According to several media reports, over 60,000 employees lost their job in January alone, which is more than the December layoffs.
According to the company’s statement, PW is hiring faculty members and professionals for allied roles like business analysts, data analysts, counsellors, operations managers, batch managers, teachers, etc. The firm said it is recruiting extensively through mega recruitment drives.
“At this growth juncture, hiring more professionals across roles was the next natural progression for us,” Satish Khengre, HR Head of Physics Wallah, said. “Above all, we are looking for people who are passionate and aligned with our vision to provide affordable and quality education to all and become lifelong learning partners for students.”
Currently, Alakh Pandey-led Physics Wallah has more than 6,500 employees, of which 2,000 are teachers and education experts.
The edtech giant claims to be on a growth spree, having forayed into several competitive exams, including state boards, GATE, CDS, NDA, UPSC, CTET, SSC, CDS, railways, banking, CA, commerce, MBA, and more, apart from JEE and NEET preparation. It has also launched post-graduate courses and PW Skills for career building and tech skilling.
