NEW DELHI: SoftBank-backed Automation Anywhere will be ramping up hiring in this calendar year and will open offices in host of new countries, said Sonali De Sarker, senior director (human resources) of IMEA (India, Middle East and Africa). The San Jose-headquartered company, which is into robotic process automation — or bots — was valued at $2.8 billion in November last year after SoftBank pumped in $300 million.

The company, which has 43 offices across the globe, will hire an additional 600 people in 2019, taking its headcount from around 2,400 to 3,000, said Sarker. The bulk of the hiring will be in India, which has around 740 employees and is expected to reach 1,200 by the end of the year. She said that the hiring would be focused on engineers, sales and customer support roles across all levels.

She also said the company was enabling greater flexibility of switching between roles within the company. Campus placements were also on the radar this year, she said.

Sarker also said that the company will open offices in Turkey and Egypt this year, and add offices in South Africa and the UAE. The company has been on an aggressive expansion spree, and has added offices in Dubai, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia, Indonesia, China and Latina America in the past year.

She also said that the company has plans to expand to tier-II cities in India. Sarker said the company was focused on “accelerating product innovation, adding specialised machine learning capabilities and sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) integrations” to all their products.
