Tide, the UK’s leading business financial platform with operations in India, has announced a hiring spree of more than 600 technology professionals by the end of 2026. This drive, which constitutes nearly 60% of the company’s total hiring, stems from Tide’s expansion strategy to boost its local presence in India, its first international market.  

In this endeavour, Tide is creating new hiring streams through an ‘Internship to Hire’ programme to attract and nurture top quality talent. Focused on training fresh graduates from premium institutes, such as IITs and NITs, Tide will leverage the programme to recruit entry-level candidates and then gradually increase the count as the model matures. Upon successful completion of the programme, interns will be offered full-time employment opportunities at Tide.

Gurjodhpal Singh, CEO, Tide India, said, “We have seen a tremendous response from the Indian market within a short span of starting operations in the country. The additional technological capabilities will help us build our product for India as we expand our roots deeper into the country and invest in the technology leaders of tomorrow.”  

Earlier this year, Tide had announced plans to create more than 1,000 jobs in India over the next five years. In the coming 18-24 months, the fintech’s Hyderabad global development centre (GDC) will onboard more than 300 engineers across various roles, with a particular focus on backend engineers in Java and Python, as well as experts in data science and Flutter.  

Neeraj Agrawal, VP Engineering-Hyderabad Technology Centre, Tide India, added, “GDC is integral to scaling our business in India. The country has a huge pool of technological expertise available locally and I am confident the team we are building will help us tune our offering better for Indian SMEs and deliver superior support to them when we roll out our offering here in India.”
