LinkedIn Ranks Razorpay 6th in India’s Top Startups List
Taking the 6th spot in LinkedIn’s Top Startups List, the leading full-stack financial solutions company, Razorpay, adds yet another feather to its hat as one of the most admired places to work for in India.
LinkedIn’s 3rd annual Top Startups List features 10 leading companies that have remained resilient during a tumultuous time, continuing to attract investment, employees and attention. LinkedIn’s editors and data scientists looked across four pillars: employee growth; jobseeker interest; member engagement with the company and its employees, and how well the startups pulled talent from their flagship LinkedIn Top Companies list. These 10 startups point to growing trends in business, from e-learning to fintech, indicating where there might be career opportunities in the future.
“This recognition in LinkedIn’s Top Startups list is a huge encouragement and a testimony to the relentless work that the Razorpay team has been putting in, particularly in unprecedented times like this one. Culture has been at the core of what we do and our team and customers come first for us. Over the last 5 years, we’ve been able to create a workplace that encourages innovation, independence, transparency and autonomy. Honestly, if not for our people, none of what the company has achieved would have been possible. To be ranked alongside some of the greatest startups is a reflection of the good work we’ve been doing, the growth that we’ve had as a company and the growth that our employees have had – we’ve all grown together and we will continue to do so,” said Anuradha Bharat, Vice President – People Operations, delighted about being featured in the list for the third time in a row alongside some great startups.
Razorpay has been listed by LinkedIn’s Top Startups for the third time, consequently. The company’s growth has been uphill, particularly in the last two years. With a 500 per cent growth in 2019, the company has been witnessing a healthy growth rate of 35 per cent month-on-month.
