Biz2X, a subsidiary of Biz2Credit in India, on Thursday, announced its plans to hire 250 people by next year.
The digital lending software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform recruited 220 people in 2022 across its India office, in addition to 30 contractual staff members.
Biz2X said it will hire personnel in middle management roles with experience and expertise in domains such as data science, product development and management, and front-end and back-end operations, among others.
The platform enables financial institutions to provide a customized online lending experience for their small and midsize business customers.
