Who are we looking for?

We are on the lookout for prospective applicants from diverse backgrounds and nationalities, with demonstrable leadership potential, the ability to navigate ambiguity, high levels of resilience, an engaging communication style, the ability to influence effectively and curiosity in abundance.

The three competencies we probably value the most are:

  • Agility & Adaptability:We live in times where new technologies are evolving in the blink of an eye. Transformation and complexity is the order of the day. We need leaders with vision and the ability to accomplish goals at a rapid pace, who look upon challenges as opportunities, are comfortable with change and ambiguity, and can adapt to varied roles as we scale.
  • Innovation:We are accustomed to dealing with emerging trends and disruptive technologies across the enterprise stack in our existing lines of business. We need innovative minds who have the courage to venture out of their comfort zones and disrupt established patterns.
  • Collaboration:Does the idea of collaborating with over 170,000 people across geographies, cultures, nationalities and ethnicities excite and inspire you? We believe that a culture that encourages plurality of thought and embraces diversity of opinion will ultimately lead to new ideas and innovation.
