Zomato is looking to hire 800 employees across various functions, as mentioned in a LinkedIn post by its founder Deepinder Goyal. This comes soon after layoffs at companies across different sectors. In fact, Zomato laid off nearly 3% of its workforce a few months ago, calling it a “regular performance-based churn.” Some of the current job openings mentioned by Goyal include Chief of Staff to CEO, Generalist, Growth Manager, and Software Development Engineer.
